Learn how to identify nonconforming use rights and understand how such rights may affect further use and development.

Many existing uses of land are technically prohibited by zoning regulations, but are allowed to continue because they predate the zoning regulations prohibiting them. Such nonconforming uses are subject to heightened regulatory limitations that have important consequences for transferring property and obtaining development permits. This topic will help attorneys and other professionals involved in real estate transactions and land use permitting identify nonconforming use rights and understand how such rights may affect further use and development of property. This information is essential for those practicing in complex regulatory environments where land use regulations are prevalent and change frequently.

Learning Objectives
  • You will be able to define a nonconforming use and distinguish it from nonconforming development and vested rights doctrines.
  • You will be able to identify nonconforming use rights and determine whether they may allow the use to continue or expand.
  • You will be able to explain how nonconforming use rights function to preserve economic use of property.
  • You will be able to review uses of property to determine whether they constitute legal nonconforming uses, and whether a nonconforming use can be reestablished or expanded.
