Laurin Associates has worked with developers, housing agencies, and local governments to successfully complete numerous permanent and temporary residential relocations. Laurin Associates is knowledgeable of both State and Federal relocation requirements, and has worked within local relocation requirements when applicable. Laurin Associates has prepared numerous relocation plans that have been approved by TCAC, CDLAC, HCD, HUD, USDA, and local agencies.

Every relocation project has its own nuances, depending on the tenant population, extent and length of construction, project location, project financing, and whether it is temporary vs. permanent.  Laurin Associates has relocated households to renting situations (permanent and temporary, onsite and offsite), as well as to home ownership opportunities throughout California, Idaho, and Arizona.

Laurin Associates works closely with the project sponsor, tenants, management, construction and moving company to implement the relocation plan.  Laurin Associates’ goal is to facilitate and coordinate every relocation, with minimal hardships for the displaced households, while accommodating our client’s construction schedule.
