There are a lot of different things that you need to check up on before buying a home in York County – or anywhere else for that matter. For example, how much do you know about the area’s land use laws? If you plan to raise animals in your backyard - like chickens – or create a small urban farm, then you should look into them.
Land use laws ensure that businesses are built in one area and residences in another. Land use regulations also help to curtail the environmental impact of a growing population, thereby helping to maintain order in both urban and suburban areas. This might affect you if you plan on having a small urban farm on your property. An urban farm could be a s small as a patio garden, but it could also be as big as a city block.
There are zoning regulations regarding raising animals due to safety, noise and cleanliness standards. And if you plan on selling anything that you grow, you may be verging on being identified as a business. This is why knowing the land use laws is so important.
