I just can't get my brain wrapped around this - I need help!!! Subject is a duplex. According to city planning & zoning, it's illegal and they're only allowed to have a single family residence on that lot. City said if they investigated, owners would be required to put it back to SFR. My client now wants me to appraise it "as is", with a cost to cure to convert it back to SFR. That would require the demolition of the smaller 2nd unit. Other than the fact that I have no freakin clue what that might cost, isn't that a hypothetical condition? Because "as is" is an illegal duplex. To appraise it as an SFR would be hypothetical. Am I getting that right? Also, if they wanted it appraised as an SFR, there wouldn't be a cost to cure, would there? My mind is going in circles. What are my options for appraising this property? Thanks!!
