Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

I called several companies for quotes, and I felt that Atlanta Property Inspections was the most welcoming!  Thereafter, I had a wonderful experience at the inspection. My inspector was thorough, kind, and willing to explain things and answer my questions on site.  He was very knowledgeable and very friendly.  I am glad I did not skip the inspection for this 950 square foot condo, and the review has been very helpful, during my due diligence period in evaluating this potential home.

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

How Properties Get Rezoned?

There are many reasons to get a property rezoned. However, many homeowners don’t know much about the process and difficulties. So, to inform everyone, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go through the steps of getting a property rezoned, like doing general research in the area, talking with the neighbors, submitting a request, meeting the necessary people, some difficulties that may come up, and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

Do A General Research And Survey In Your Area

The first thing you should do when rezoning your property is make a general survey of your property and question the zoning rules. Do a survey to see if the city is experiencing large-scale growth. This will allow you to understand how the area is changing with time. In addition, the research should give you critical information about the rules in the area that are required to rezone. Not all the rules in states are the same, so it is crucial to follow these rules.

Talk With Your Neighbors and People Around

Talking with neighbors isn't required. However, doing so will allow you to discuss your intentions with your property. Most of the neighbors don’t agree with the idea of rezoning, but their objections can be overruled with the right legal procedures. So, to prevent this additional time-consuming step, talking with the neighbors and getting along with them is crucial.

Making Rezoning Requests

Now that you have gone over the previous sections, you must start the paperwork process. Meet with the officials and start discussing what you want with them. The authority will require many more things like land survey, maps, site plans, traffic studies, and the case. They might also require you to pay a sum.

Go Throughout the Necessary Meetings of the Planning Commission & Governing Body

After some time, the officials will make a planning review with you and give you an appointment with the planning commission and the governing body. With these meetings, you can address any concerns and put the rezoning to vote.

Understanding The Cost of Rezoning a Property

Rezoning comes with some drawbacks, too. The most common drawback is the cost of applying for rezoning. After filling out a very long form and waiting a long time for the petition to be accepted, you might be charged fifty cents per square foot. This rate can change for different states and cities.
