The grandfather clause is most applicable to which one of the following:
- The transfer of conditions, covenants, and restrictions,
- The use of a quitclaim deed
- In a blanket deed of trust
- Legal non-conforming use in appraising zoning compliance
The answer is D. When appraising a home, the appraiser looks to see if any improvements made to the home conform to the current zoning of the site. If they don’t then there’s a problem because non-conforming properties can not be reconstructed if destroyed.
But, older properties may be “grandfathered in” regarding their zoning. The city or county may provide what is called a “burn-down” letter, indicating that the property, in its current state, could be rebuilt if it were, for any reason, destroyed.
