Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Could you explain a little more?
Is the area zoned for mixed used? That is, for both commercial and residential?
Thank you for the information.
I cannot confirm the information that you have received. So, I will opt out and give another Attorney the opportunity to further assist you.
I am a different attorney and it will be my pleasure to assist you.
There are some businesses in the area that are zoned. Mine is not "zoned", but I do not have anyone living there. I have heard that it is legal if it separates from my live in home. Is this true? I will only have maybe 1-5 people at a time there.
It is very rare that there are homes, offices, farms or another type of land that does not fall under a zoning designation. You may be telling me that you are not zoned business. What is your zoning designation? I can tell what you need to do if you do not fall under zoning would allow the use of your property for a business purpose but I need to know your current zoning and the local laws. ordinances and codes that govern your area. Where in Texas is your property located? Is it within city limits? If so which city? Is the zoning handled by your county?
