Zoning Due Diligence

Zoning and land due diligence is an important task for any proposed commercial or investment real estate acquisition. Zoning laws, which are constantly changing, dictate how a site can be used and impose size and location limits on structures. Lenders, insurers and buyers want to ensure their real estate investment is well protected and seek to have zoning due diligence undertaken as part of their decision-making process. Proper zoning due diligence requires expert knowledge of the detailed workings of zoning by-laws; legal non-conforming use application; survey and site plan interpretation; and, building permit issuance. Lakeshore Group has an established and recognized Zoning Due Diligence platform known as “ZEDD” which many companies, lenders and their legal counsels rely on to satisfy their acquisition investigations.
