If you are in the City of Philadelphia then that is one thing, but in a suburb or township, the meaning will likely be different.
Single family dwelling, detached
Single family dwelling, semi-detached
Place of worship, detached
Place of worship, semi-detached
you can always order city cert at http://www.phila.gov
to make sure
Zoning Classifications have different meanings in different areas. For example, in Philadelphia, R5 would be a residential area which could include twins, maybe some singles on smaller lots, etc., but NO commercial or industrial activity on the block or the property with this code. A row home would probably have an R9, R9A, R10 or R10A code
If this R5 was in a suburban area, then you would have to check with the municipality. I hope this helps you. If you have any further questions, just contact me.
