Township is not the seller here. I’ve also reached out to the seller and her attorney in order to attempt to extend the diligence period and get them working on it also. We also have an attorney representing us so I have gotten them involved. I finally got this answer from the township:
“What I can tell you is that the property is not currently (to our knowledge) under any “active” violations of Township Ordinances. With that being said, violations are typically driven by a complaint basis. Therefore we are not saying that necessarily the overall site is in full compliance of all the Township Ordinance regulations. This determination would have to be made upon a thorough review of the site, the improvements made and when and records of permits, etc. As long as the appropriate permits were secured at the time any site improvements were installed then there should be no question of compliance. I would assume that the current owner can advise you on this matter more readily than our office can.”
This is in response to my question of, “Is the property legal, legal non-conforming, or illegal; is there a permit or license required to operate the park; how many lots am I allowed to have there; etc” I have also given them definitions of each what each legal status is so there is no confusion as to what I am asking here. Keep in mind, this is the head of the township’s zoning department who responded that way to my request.
