I currently have a park in Tennessee under contract.
I requested a certificate of zoning from the Planning and Development department but they would only provide a letter of zoning.
The relevant sections read as follows:
The properties which compose the Mobile Home Park contain a mixture of legal nonconforming uses as it was constructed prior to the adoption of zoning or building codes.
After speaking with the Environmental Health Department, and in the absence of the any record to the contrary, staff is fairly confident that 55 units are established with nonconforming status and may continue to be used subject to the provisions of Article 5.
In addition, for the state of Tennessee I have been unable to find any information on whether any type of permit or license is required to operate a mobile home park. The seller has stated one is not required.
Is the letter of zoning sufficient?
Are they some states that do not require a permit or license?
Thanks in advance for the replies.
