Listed Triplex with R-1 Zoning

2 Replies

I’m looking at a triplex in my hometown that seems like a decent deal so far. The listing says it’s zoned R-1 though, which I’ve seen is for SFH dwellings only? Does this mean it shouldn’t have 3 different households or could it be grandfathered? Who is best to contact about it? Thanks for your help :-)

It could be a special exception or like you said grandfathered depending on when ordinances were put in place or changed. 
Contact your county Zoning board, might be able to find details online as well. You can also check tax assessor website which will tell you what the property is officially listed as.
