Property issues are a significant concern. Whether ascertaining the validity of a title or fighting remediation, you should never be forced to tackle the government alone.

What is municipal consulting on property issues?
Municipal consulting, in general, offers insight to or when working with the government. These services provide management consulting to agencies and advice on obtaining permits and dealing with regulations.
Property and construction undergo intense scrutiny. Height restrictions, liens, permits, and licensing issues face many property owners. In the face of broad and confusing legislation, bylaw violations are not unheard of.
These issues are magnified when international entrepreneurs and firms wish to create opportunities in the beautiful cities of Windsor. Our laws differ significantly from those of the United States and other countries.
Payne Municipal Consulting helps clients navigate the complex legal environment. We offer affordable and seasoned consultants in municipal Windsor.
What regulations face property owners and developers in Windsor, Ontario?
Windsor maintains a strict building code as set under the Ontario Building Code, Building Code Act of 1992, and a variety of extensions and other legislation. Permit applications, submitted online, are reviewed by the city for potential violations. Inspections are required as well.
Building permits are required when starting construction. Homeowners, businesses, and developers must apply for these licenses. City regulations extend to decks, fireplaces, porches, sunrooms, plumbing, sprinkler systems, solar panels, and more.
While many building types are regulated, some are not. Landscaping, fences, and even some solar panels do not require permits. This creates a complex legal environment for any developer.
Payne Municipal Consultants are available to answer questions and guide you through the permit process. Hiring a professional often reduces costs down the road for violations and in the recreation of permit applications.
Demolitions require special permits as well. Buildings above three stories in height, the use of explosives, and projects extending beneath the footing of other buildings require examination.
Reliable and professional consultants understand the needs of customers and work with you to match your creativity and need to reality. Getting a project off the ground without traction is difficult.
We understand the intricacies of Windsor’s laws and regulations, leaving you free to focus on completing your vision legally. Municipal Windsor offers significant opportunity for development within the confines of these laws.
