USDA question!.....went to the property today. Then, called zoning a few hours later. It's being used as residential, is being purchased to live in, was marketed as residential. Most of the properties on the street are residential. Best I can tell so far, it does back up to and on one side is a bank property. On one side is a residential property and across the street are residential houses. At this time, it's highest and best use is residential. However, it's zoned b2-retail business and it can not be built back as a residential property if it is destroyed. It was grandfathered in as non-conforming residential use according to local zoning. The house was built in the 1960s. Will usda lend on this property? I read somewhere that usda will loan on "legal non-conforming" but am not finding it at the moment and need a fast answer if possible. help?
