A coastal real estate buyers guide distributed by the South Carolina State OCRM office is being updated to reflect important information needed by those seeking to buy, develop, or modify coastal property. While no pamphlets of the current version are available, it can be found online at http://www.scdhec.gov/environment/ocrm/faq_beach.htm. To assist OCRM I am providing technical support in drafting the language and updated guidelines for people interested in coastal real estate. This guide will provide information on insurance regulations, permitting processes, and state building regulations. We expect the new informational guide to be available this year and I will provide web links when it goes live online and include distribution locations.
