Clients rely on BBG zoning to identify municipal property zoning requirements and any potential product liabilities.

BBG offers comprehensive zoning experience with expertise in real estate portfolios and all commercial property types across all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. Clients appreciate our high-quality, professional reports and efficient delivery timelines.

Zoning Assessment Reports (ZARS)
ZARs include a review of a client provided ALTA Survey, client provided documentation and municipal records to identify the zoning classification and allowable uses as well as lot size, density, setback and parking requirements and building height and density restrictions.  The report includes zone confirmation, planning approvals, violations, certificate of occupancy and future property condemnations.

Zoning Summary Reports (ZSRS)
ZSRs include a review on any provided ALTA Surveys, Certificates of Occupancy and Property Condition Assessments to determine Property Use Conformance.

Pre-Application Processing Services (P.A.P.S)
The purpose of this service is to assist property owners with obtaining all the necessary information and documentation needed to begin their new construction project. We provide this service to offer a full planning outline to help you understand how the development policies will apply to the proposed development. Depending on the municipality, each project consists of different requirements for new developments.

The P.A.P.S Report is delivered in two different phases.

First Phase – Land use, zoning and building conformation for allowance of new proposal; detailed outline of all necessary information and documentation needed to start the pre-application.

Second Phase – Pre-application submittal includes meeting arrangements for client-hired contractors and engineers. Information and documentation provided at meetings are detailed within the Phase 2 report for final deliverable. 

We work with lenders, buyers, REITs, commercial real estate attorneys and real estate brokers.
