I am looking at purchasing a house that is a 4 plex (sort of) in my area. I am unsure of how it stands with the local government and have some concerns.
There was a variance issued to do something (I can't find out what they wanted to do since all i have is the appeal info) on a lot that had a SFR on it due do zoning stuff. One of the caveats of doing what they wanted to was that they would tear down the garage as it was dilapidated. I have DCE records that say it never was torn down and others that say it was converted to living space. So there are two free standing structures with 2 units each (it's weird).
Essentially I just want to know that if I buy it I won't have to do any demo and the city wont be on my ***. Does anyone know what department I should contact to get in writing that everything is AOK with this house?
I found out what I needed to find out via contacting the DCE. Everything is NOT ok with this house. They cant reach the owner who lives in CA.
