It is important to know where the easements and utility right-of-ways (UROW) are on your property so that you don’t construct your arbour within the easement or UROW or in a way that impedes access to the utility. Sometimes an encroachment can be considered. However, you must first contact the company or party to whom the easement or UROW is registered and get permission.
Effective Sept. 1, 2022, RPR's will only be stamped digitally and e-mailed to applicants confirming the compliance. The City of Airdrie will no longer be stamping or returning paper copies of RPR’s.
Email your Real Property Report to firstname.lastname@example.org for a Certificate of Compliance. To avoid a delay in finalizing your transaction, you should apply for your compliance stamp as soon as you have decided to sell your property.
What is a Certificate of compliance?
A Certificate of Compliance is written confirmation from the City of Airdrie that development on a property meets the regulations of the Land use bylaw. Lawyers and lending institutions need compliance certificates to protect their clients’ investments. Standard real estate purchase contracts often require the vendor to obtain a stamp of compliance.
Compliance certificates are provided as a service through your request, as it is not mandatory to have one all the time. A compliance certificate is issued by a compliance stamp on the property survey or a letter, depending on the type of request. The accuracy of the certificate depends on the quality and detail of your real property report. Using a current Real Property Report that shows all buildings, structures, hard surfacing (like driveways and patios) and fences on your property will help you get a more accurate compliance certificate.
A Real Property Report can be obtained through a registered Alberta Land Surveyor. There is a charge for this service. Consumers are advised to shop around as rates vary.
