What is Commercial Zoning?

Zoning consists of written regulations and laws defined by cities, counties, villages, townships, etc., for the use of land in specific geographic areas. Zoning ordinances (or categories) specify whether a property can be used for residential, commercial, industrial, civic, agricultural or other designations. This plays a key role in the development of a particular district. Each category has specific regulations for what uses are permitted, based upon conditions such as:

  • Lot area
  • Setbacks
  • Structure heights
  • Parking spaces

In commercial real estate, users of zoning reports need to know that the property is properly zoned, that its current use is acceptable and that is it not in violation of any zoning or building codes.


Who needs a zoning report?

Zoning reports have become integral pieces of the puzzle when conducting commercial real estate transactions. They are used by attorneys, title insurers, property owners, brokers, buyers and lenders to complete the due diligence process, determine compliance, secure title endorsements and ascertain insurance needs.
