We review each case with detail to determine what is the best course for each individual or business.

Easements, Licenses & Restrictive Covenants

Often real estate issues arise because of limits on the property, such as easements, licenses and restrictive covenants. An easement grants a person other than the owner of the property the right to use the property for a specific purpose, such as a road to cross into another piece of property. A restrictive covenant is an agreement that may limit the use of property. Howard, Lewis & Petersen, P.C. can help you understand the issues involved in limits on property. We can also help should you seek to create or enforce a property right.


We represent individuals and businesses in various cases involving commercial leases, residential leases, and sale/leasebacks. Our firm is also experienced in dealing with landlord and tenant issues.

Zoning & Land Use Planning

Property ownership, use and development requires an understanding of zoning laws and other laws, regulations and restrictions that may affect the use of commercial or residential property. At Howard, Lewis & Petersen, P.C., our attorneys will assist you in complying with land use planning and zoning laws and regulations including permits, right approvals and meetings with the appropriate boards and organizations. Our attorneys can also provide advice regarding the validity of zoning and land use laws, regulations and restrictions.


Unfortunately, foreclosure on properties happen everyday. If foreclosure proceedings are pending, our experienced Provo real estate attorneys can help you determine the proper course of action.
