Are you aware about the zoning laws when it comes to real estate investment in Maryland? Ensure whether you are allowed to have a business in your home before starting, by investigating your zoning ordinance. Breaking zoning laws by starting a business at home could put your business in a problem. Determine your zoning laws in your city or your county. For example if you are in Maryland then check out the zoning laws of that place. Determine which government body maintains your zoning laws and familiarize yourself with these regulations. In this way you will be prepared to deal with any problems that may arise.

Zoning problems in Maryland usually arises with home based businesses that deal with public. Usually, it is your neighbors who bring your business to the notice of the zoning boards. The neighbors complain when they are disturbed by the noise that the customers make while coming in and out of your home, occupying the parking space.

Your abnormal working hours may also disturb the neighbors. In addition to their complaints, you can also run into problem if you occupy more space for the business then what is allotted. A zoning issue may pop up after determining the 'space percentage'. Find out what your Maryland local zoning laws suggest about your specific home business by going online, in your library or through your city's chamber or commerce.

Incase, you are unable to get a copy through these resources the contact the city hall indirectly with the help of a friend or call from a telephone other than your home number. Once you get in touch with city hall, ask if there is a home occupation regulation and if they can provide a copy of it. Some towns say they have a regulation but they do not enforce it. But it is not true.

If you find your business in problem then you have only 3 options left with you: shut down, go undercover, or attempt to have the law changed. Hence, it becomes necessary to know zoning laws in Maryland, especially if you are investing in real estate, before putting up a business at home.
