The Main Problem is that we allow the government to control the land that we paid for and continue to pay taxes on.

The Constitution does require them to pay us for the rights that they Take, but the legislature and regulatory agencies generally forget this.

These are things that attorneys tend to deal with - it's above an agent's pay grade. You need to know enough about to tell the buyers to talk to a lawyer first.

All areas are going to have their own land use codes and ordinances. As you start getting familar with different areas, you will learn the codes and what you have to do. Checking with the local governments will also give you a lot of information.

Assumptions.

"Oh, we can get that zoning changed after the purchase."

"Oh, I sure you can do that."

"I see no problem with moving the in-laws into the converted carriage house."
