Certificate of Compliance
If you are selling or financing your property, you may be required to apply for a certificate of compliance. This is a letter issued by the Municipality confirming that the location of buildings on a property conforms to the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw in terms of siting, coverage and setbacks. The compliance review is based on a Real Property Report (RPR) prepared by an Alberta Land Surveyor.
“Alberta Land Surveyor” means a person who holds a certificate of registration and an annual certificate to engage in the practice of surveying under the Alberta Land Surveyors Act. It is commonly referenced as A.L.S.
“Compliance Certificate or Certificate Requesting Compliance” means a document issued by Thorhild County that states whether or not the existing buildings and/or other visible improvements which are shown on the Real Property Report meet the setback requirements of Thorhild County’s Land Use Bylaw. Also known as a Compliance Report.
“Land Use Bylaw” means the current Thorhild County Land Use Bylaw, and any amendments thereto.
“Real Property Report (RPR)” means a survey document prepared, signed, dated and stamped by an Alberta Land Surveyor, illustrating the location of all structures and visible improvements situated on a parcel of land relative to the property boundaries. The Real Property Report is a “Snap Shot” of the property on the date of the survey prepared by an Alberta Land Surveyor.
A Real Property Report is the only true way of knowing the legal boundaries of the property one is buying or selling.
“Statutory Declaration” means a written certificate of facts solemnly declared to be true by the person(s) signing the declaration before a Commissioner for Oaths.
