Starting a Business in Your Home? Be Sure to Check Local Zoning Laws

Question: I plan to start a home-based business. What should I know about local zoning laws?Answer: Before you decide to use that kitchen table or spare room for business, check local zoning laws for any restrictions. Some laws prohibit all businesses from operating in a residential area. Others have exceptions and take into consideration issues such as whether the business type will be a nuisance to other nearby home owners. A local land use attorney can walk you through the process to ensure you are compliant. For more information about Illinois law, visit www.illinoislawyerfinder.com.  If you have a legal question, send it to illinoislawcolumn@isba.org.Illinois Law Now is a series of newspaper and internet posts prepared by the Illinois State Bar Association that address legal issues of interest to the public.
