Most zoning ordinances grandfather existing uses until the use ceases. Further, most localities that are getting serious about tightening their land use ordinances usually do so with the advice of their own counsel.
If you find yourself in land-use litigation, then the strategy should be designed by your attorney. Bringing renters into court may or may not help the particular case. That’s a decision that can only be made by the attorney involved.
