Real Estate & Zoning

Team Members: Joyce E. KohSamantha R. Lyons*, William S. Ravenell, II, Kahiga A. Tiagha

At  Tiagha & Associates, our transactional lawyers have direct experience  with real estate and zoning matters. Our lawyers bring a variety of direct experience, be it through our direct training by a former member of the Philadelphia Board of Zoning Board of Adjustment (“ZBA”)  or direct transactional and  litigation experience.  We provide services to developers, sellers, buyers, landlords, tenants, lenders and property managers.

Our lawyers  have successfully handled various litigation matters including  landlord-tenant litigation, buyer-seller disputes, confessions of judgment, quiet title actions, adverse possession and zoning, and property disputes. We represent clients in front of the ZBA from small variance to ground up developments.   We also assist with the  purchase and sale of multi-family dwellings and commercial units. When necessary, we also facilitate financing for our clients to ensure they can complete their goals.

Call us today for any of your real estate needs at +1.215.543.7970. For any zoning matter, email Samantha Lyons at and for any commercial real estate transaction (acquisition, sale, financing or development)  email Kahiga Tiagha at
