Things to Think About When Buying a Waterfront Lot
If you’re considering buying a waterfront lot in this part of Florida, you’ll want to have a firm grasp of how you plan to use that lot, because just because you can see a nearby waterway, it doesn’t mean you have limitless access to get out on the water. You’ll need to find out if the waterfront lot in question actually touches the nearby waterway, and what that means for your rights. You can’t just assume, you need to know what your private land rights are, because Florida has its own unique statutes.
You’ll also want to know about any construction requirements on the land, well before you even think about building a home or a dock. There may be some rules regarding setback you need to understand, and these rules could impact whether the lot will even work for your needs in the future.
Building a Waterfront Home in St. Augustine: What to Consider
If you’re planning to build a waterfront home in St Augustine, you can’t always assume a waterfront lot includes access to everything you can see. Just because neighboring homes include docks doesn’t mean you’re allowed to build one too, which could impact the usefulness of the property if you hope to have boating access. You’ll also want to know whether a dock you build would be considered private, or whether others would be able to use it, plus what would happen if you ever needed to replace it. Sometimes, lots close to the water require accessing another property before touching the waterfront, which then brings up the question of whether you legally have the right to that access from your land.
If you plan to build a new construction home, you’ll also want to know if the property sits in a flood prone area, and what FEMA requirements are for building on the lot, which is why it’s probably a good idea to get with a real estate attorney to make sure you have all the information you need from the beginning. If you don’t know some of these answers, the lot you purchase could end up costing significantly more than what you were expecting, simply based on legal fees and maybe even construction costs.
