Why a Zoning Report
- Learn the status of the property: conforming, non-conforming, legal non-conforming
- Lenders may require this report to secure financing
- Shows height, setback, density, and area compliance requirements
- Look at compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act
- Recognize parking requirements and use
- Identify building and safety or zoning code violations
- See planned developments that might impact the property
If the property does not conform to any of the regulations mentioned above, the loan, as well as the long term ownership of the property may be impacted. Lenders can require additional insurance if a property is nonconforming. Furthermore, if a nonconforming property is damaged or destroyed, or any renovations are made, it may be required to be rebuilt to comply with the current zoning code.
