Zoning Assessment Reports (ZARs)

The Zoning Assessment Report (ZAR) is a comprehensive zoning due diligence in report format that includes property and municipal interpretation of compliance. The ZAR includes the most recent zoning use and developmental requirements, property plan approvals, violations and issued certificates of occupancy. In addition, a comparison to the most existing conditions of the property to determine compliance of the property. The Zoning Assessment Report is industry approved for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and other Investor and Lending Groups.


Our team advises property owners, investors, lenders, and buyers on planning and zoning, document searches, and planning advisory. These services are typically through coordinating the applications for rezoning, variances, special or conditional use permits and other processes to start development approvals for planning.
