FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Effective October 15th, 2023 TheLotShop.com is no longer providing owner finance alternatives.  We move forward with our no haggle, wholesale cash business, without interruption. Our TheLotShop.com wholesale marketplace is open 24 hours a day to transact business!

What does wholesale purchase mean?  Our sales format is wholesale direct to public. It's really just a pricing model concept - we are kind of alike to CarMax, but for land! Fixed pricing first-come, first-served, style.  Our online marketplace TheLotShop.com is real-time with pricing and availability of all our 300+ Florida lots.  As soon as someone makes a purchase the lot will state Under Contract and thereby become unavailable. 

Can I live in or leave an RV on the property that I purchase from The Lot Shop? 
In most cases, NO! RV and/or travel trailers as a primary residence are not permitted on the sites that we have for sale, unless specifically noted on the listing. In order to keep one on premise, generally speaking, most FL building codes require you have a permanent structure of at least 378 square feet, though many more have 750-1000 sq. feet minimum size requirements. The specifics and minimum building requirements vary greatly from county to county within the state and are always subject to statutory changes.  Because of this, we encourage you to contact the county zoning department directly to verify any potential land uses/restrictions.

How can I find out about land use or building regulations for a property? 
While we provide any information about zoning and land use on properties to the best of our knowledge, we encourage you to do your own research by calling, emailing or visiting the county zoning and planning division where the property is located.  Most can then give you extensive information about allowable uses for the property if you provide them with the appraiser's parcel number (APN) located on each of our listings.

How can I find out about utilities at a specific property?
If we are aware of utilities for a specific property we will include any information available, however, we recommend you do your own due diligence by discussing utilities directly with the county for the most recent information available.  Feel free to call, email or visit the county where the property is located. 

How much does septic, well, sewer tie ins, etc. cost?
As you can see from pricing, our lots are priced to move vs. other lots in the area.  We price this way assuming most individuals are doing their own research on the available utilities and any expenses to tie in or test.  We are unable to give you any information on this is as it varies from property to property and county to county.  Please do your own research and contact vendors in area to complete your due diligence.

How do I find flood information?
Please visit FEMA and type in the property address.  

May I visit the property prior to purchasing? 
You may use the maps and address information provided to look at the property prior to completing your purchase if you wish. We will, however, be unable to meet you there. Please remember this is not like a home that needs to be unlocked or accessed securely. We simply ask you to be respectful to any neighbors when approaching parcels we offer for sale.

Does the property have road access?
All our properties have road access unless noted otherwise in the individual property listing.

Do any of the properties have back taxes?
Taxes for the prior year or years have likely been paid.  Evidence of payment can be viewed upon the applicable Counties/ Public Tax Collector website.  If, however, tax liabilities exist for the prior year(s), Seller will pay immediately upon receipt of purchase price and fees and will provide evidence of same to Purchaser within 10 business days of receipt of all cleared funds.  Any liabilities for the current tax billing cycle shall be the sole responsibility of the Purchaser.
