Historic Preservation in Kentucky has undergone rapid change since the turn of the 21st century. Today, there are complex laws geared towards protecting Kentucky’s rich heritage. The Kentucky Heritage Council (KHC) and State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) have provided a framework for the public to engage in Historic Preservation. Among the most popular methods to get involved is the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). In fact, Kentucky has the 4th most listings on the National Register out of any state in the country. SLG can assist historic property owners with the nomination process, as well as compliance with local, state, and federal statutes and regulations. Our attorneys are available to help clients navigate through the legal aspects of preservation. Whether you’re a property owner or preservation advocate, Strause Law Group is ready to answer your questions!
Am I in compliance with Preservation Laws?
Statutes and Regulations associated with Historic Preservation are essentially guaranteed even across different regions and states. The laws are not designed to discourage preservation or cause concern for property owners. They enable consistency and sustainable practices implemented from site to site. Without legal knowledge, it can be difficult to ensure compliance. If you have questions regarding a property’s eligibility and/or compliance, it is best to seek assistance from legal professionals. For over a decade, Strause Law Group has assisted clients with compliance and related issues.
How Can you Benefit from Historic Preservation?
Can you use historic preservation to your advantage? Is there potential to earn compensation or tax credits for your involvement? Yes! Preservation can be mutually beneficial to public and private sectors. The government has provided incentives for citizens to preserve and rehabilitate historic sites. These financial incentives may come in the form of tax credits, grants, or even loans to conduct necessary renovations to a structure. Opportunities are plentiful and they are becoming more widely available, as well as increasingly beneficial. These opportunities are public and intended to be used by citizens throughout the Commonwealth.
