  3. 3. http://www.pzr.com The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944 It is important to know that local and county jurisdictions may change or amend their zoning ordinances often which may trigger a compliant property to become non-compliant if the sale takes place after updated zoning rules. Moreover, a property may have multiple zoning districts governing it and each may have separate zoning and land use rules.
  4. 4. http://www.pzr.com The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944 An example of zoning importance would include a future owner who may wish to demolish the existing structure and build a hospital or other structure. Zoning due diligence provides the owner specific details as to what may be built on his or her property. The zoning information will identify if the planned construction is allowed plus provides height, size, location rules, parking rules, and other restrictions which will apply when developing.
  5. 5. http://www.pzr.com The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944 Zoning analysis for commercial properties is done by zoning firms like the Planning and Zoning Resource Corporation . PZR will make sure the property is compliant from a zoning and land use perspective. Zoning analysis becomes even more arduous for multi-site and multi-location real estate transactions. A complete and expert zoning analysis and zoning due diligence is required supported by municipal documentation.
  6. 6. http://www.pzr.com The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944 In most cases buyers, lenders or insurance companies do not have the expertise or resources to conduct an in-house zoning analysis and zoning due diligence. They hire PZR for zoning analysis, zoning reports, zoning letters, zoning investigation, advice and service needs.
  7. 7. http://www.pzr.com The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944 After completing current research on a property, PZR inputs the data into a PZR Zoning Report and includes all relevant municipal documentation. In many cases, zoning analysis is not limited to municipal document review and research, but it is backed by meetings with municipal/state/local officials.
