Who is responsible for knowing zoning laws - landlord or tenant?

1 Answers. Asked on Dec 23rd, 2015 on Zoning, Planning and Land Use - California
More details to this question:
A property was leased for the intent purpose of running an automotive shop. The previous automotive shop had been grand-fathered in when new zoning was put into place. The landlord was unaware of any zoning issues and entered into the lease with tenant. The City did not notify tenant his application for Business License and Permit to Operate was denied. Tenant has operated for nearly three months before a complaint was filed by the police department.

It's going to depend on what the lease says.  Review your lease on use of the property or warranty for a specific purpose.  Most likely, this is going to be the tenant's problem.
