Department of Real Estate (DRE) Approvals
Little & Saputo assists subdividers to obtain preliminary, interim, conditional and final subdivision public reports issued by DRE for both standard and common interest developments. Our role generally involves the preparation of governing documents (including articles of incorporation, bylaws and CC&Rs), subsidy agreements, sample documents and other documentation reviewed by DRE. We also advise our clients on how best to navigate the DRE approval process for their development projects and how to comply with DRE Regulations governing common interest subdivisions. When problems arise in the DRE review process, we work with our clients to resolve the issues. We also assist subdividers when desist and refrain orders have been issued.
