A zoning confirmation letter may be requested when a property is being sold. It provides limited information to the mortgage company, realtor, or buyer regarding the permitted land uses and zoning of the property.
A zoning confirmation letter is not a requirement of any municipal By-law; however, sometimes financial institutions require confirmation of zoning at the time of property transactions.
