Coast Commissions

In 1972 The California Coastal Commission was created in an effort to preserve the coastline and provide public access.  Property located within a specified distance of the coastline is subject to regulation by the commission.  As such, buyers of property near the coastline should understand the guidelines they are subject to regarding improvements, additions, new construction, and any modification of their property.  Sellers should be aware of any changes to coastal commission regulations in terms of how these changes will impact the value and/or the ability to sell their property.
