Common Zoning and Land Use Issues
When purchasing commercial property, you must ensure that it is zoned for the type of business you want to conduct. Real estate is typically zoned into one of six primary categories:
- Mixed Use
There may be additional subcategories that place further restrictions on land use, depending on the municipality you are dealing with. If the land you are looking at is not zoned for your intended purpose, this will cause further complications. For example, if you want to build a commercial facility on a 50-acre plot that is zoned for agricultural use, you will need to seek a variance or special use permit from the local government. This process is complex and involves public notices, hearings, and ultimately seeking approval from a local board or commission.
