Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 22, 2013
The Planning & Zoning Corporation (PZR) has added zoning and land use reports to services in Chicago. A zoning report is generally required before commencing any commercial or residential construction or purchase that may alter the structure of property or change the use of subject property. Zoning permits and the approval process is generally determined by the complexity of the project.
The City of Chicago states: “A Certificate of Zoning Compliance is required whenever residential property containing five or fewer dwelling units is transferred or sold in the City of Chicago. The requirement does not apply to the transfer or sale of condominiums or cooperative buildings.”
PZR performs a zoning analysis that will make sure the property is compliant from a zoning and land use perspective. Zoning analysis becomes even more strenuous for multi-site and multi-location real estate transactions. PZR produces the PZR Report which provides a complete expert zoning analysis and zoning due diligence required for the specific jurisdiction. This information can be provided for office projects, condominium projects, health care parks, data centers, warehouses, tenant buildings, industrial parks, shopping centers and more.
Furthermore, zoning and land use compliance has become an important factor for any commercial real estate transaction. Zoning laws are constantly changing and dictate how a commercial site or property can be constructed, remodeled, or used for business. Lenders, banks, financiers, insurers and buyers need to ensure their real estate investment is well protected.
The Planning and Zoning Resource Company is the nation’s largest provider of zoning due diligence and analysis while being the sole provider and creator of the PZR Report. PZR provides its clients with zoning report formats that are supported by municipal documentations that produces reliable, independently confirmed statements that speaks to the compliance of property’s existing use, setbacks, height, density and parking. Their research includes specific zoning designation of the site as established by the current municipal code, uses allowed under the zoning designation established by the zoning ordinance, minimum setback requirements, building height and story requirements for compliance, minimum parking requirements and special circumstances that are in need on consideration. Additionally, PZR specializes in document acquisition for zoning and building code documents in all 50 states.
