Zoning Verification Letters


Zoning Verification letters are generally a request from homeowners, mortgage lenders, appraisers, and legal advisors.  A zoning letter demonstrates that the use of the property is in compliance with all municipal zoning code regulations and if the use and/or property has obtained any zoning permits that could further impact the development of the subject project.
