Zoning: Converting restaurant to housing?

A question that my limited German is struggling to find...

I've started looking at property, and saw a house which would be quite nice... the only catch is that the ground floor is (currently) a restaurant (which would be vacated, the current owners live above).

Does anyone know what the process would be to get the restaurant converted to a house (from a zoning perspective? the construction work doesn't worry me so much).

Thanks,
M

Re: Zoning: Converting restaurant to housing?

I would suggest that you have a meeting with the Bauamt from the relevant Germainde, they are normally quite helpful in any proposals that fall inside the rules. I think rezoning would devalue the property as it is quite difficult to go the other way. Using the restaurant as living / dining space does not really change the use that much. Age will be a factor as there maybe Denkmal or Heimalschutz if it has been there since the 1800s.
