I have resided atXXXXXin Oceanside, CA for 28 years. When the house next door was sold several years ago, the new owner began leasing to multiple tenants simultaneously and has continued this practice with a revolving door of new tenants with 6-8 cars typically parked in front of the house and minimal yard maintenance. I would like to know if the owner is in compliance with the City of Oceanside zoning restrictions for renting in a purely residential neighborhood.Thanks,BillCustomer
State/Country relating to question: California
My 1st inquiry.
Thank you for posting your question to JA/Pearl. Legal questions often take time for research or I may be offline so please be patient, I will reply.Do you know the zoning for your street? It would be RERS RM RH orRT
I don't know the specific zoning designation. The neighborhood consists of only single dwelling homes. There are no condos, apts, or business buildings.
It appears that the residence next door is being used as a multifamily use in a single family residential district which is a code violation. You can file a complaint with the code enforcement commission and one of their inspectors will visit the site and determine whether it is a code violation or not. Here is the complaint form.http://www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/civica/filebank/blobdload.asp?BlobID=22625
