Linda Murphey…, Home Buyer in Joplin, MO

Thinking of turning old B&B into duplex so friends can own other half

Asked by Linda Murphey Rose, Joplin, MO Sun May 4, 2008

we were wondering how hard this would be to "split up" property. What if property is not already zoned as multi-family? Also wondering about splitting up property with a "guest house" so guest house is one parcel and main house the other?

I am a Eureka Springs real estate broker/agent. It is my understanding that any home in Eureka can become a duplex with out a problem. When splitting the property beyond that check with city hall regarding the multifamily regulations. As to splitting off a guesthouse to become a separate property the first challeng might be separating the utilities/services. Next, consider if there are lot size issues to deal with. Ususally there are ways to work these things out. I find that the city is on the side of reasonable, informed citizens.
