Zoning regulations can affect your property and the surrounding properties. Keep an eye out for these changes, and think about how it will affect your property or potential development changes to a property. Will a change from residential to commercial benefit your properties?
Zoning rules could restrict what you’d like to do with a property. The law may require a certain number of parking spaces for your building and thus limit the number of individual units you might be able to build—there’s just not a enough room for parking spaces and you have to cut back on the number of units.
The most popular zoning rule property owners try to circumvent is the in-law unit, many times they have bypassed the building codes or zoning laws and created another unit when it might not be allowed—be careful with this since you might have to remove the unit.
