The term escapes me...

Example: If the current regulations require a 20-ft. set-back, but all the other homes in the neighborhood have a set-back of 15-ft., a new house built in this neighborhood can also be 15-ft.

The term for this is?

Grandfathered. But this only applies if it is in writing. It is not anautomitic grandfathered just because others have already done it.

Talk to your local Zoning Administrator to see if they will permit a Zoning Variance because the "Usual and Customary" setback in that specific area has been 15' . . . . but Zoning Ordinances are usually adopted exactly because the Voters have agreed that the past should not be a guide for future development, and they want the future to appear less congested.

To get more dwellings per acre, developers will build using a 5' setback, and 1' for a side yard . . . . I've lived in that kind of neighborhood where people can exchange Salt and Pepper Shakers out the side windows, and park on the front yard to increase the number of Occupants.
