Can a landlord rent real estate to a business that the property is not zoned for?
Question Details: I have been on the same property for almost ten years with multiple landlords, to include 2 banks as well as several private individuals. Now I've been informed that I must vacate the property because the business is not zoned for that property. The business was located on the same site before I bought the business. The city has been by several times without mention of zoning issues over the years. The zoning has not been changed during my residency. It is a taxi company, something that cannot be hidden or obscured, licensed by the city to operate every year without issue. Now after paying rent for this month I have received a summons to appear in court regarding eviction for code violation. Is this legal or even ethical?
