Compliance Certificates are increasingly being requested in connection with the purchase or sale of a property as the lender or buyer wants to know if the development on the property conforms to the City’s Land Use Bylaw. The Compliance Certificate will tell them that everything is in order, or that a compliance or other encroachment problem exists.
If a non-conformance is discovered, the City will describe the nature of it within the Compliance Certificate and it may be that the landowner needs to take corrective action. The City advises that if a non-conformance is found that you contact the City’s Development Department at the earliest opportunity to discuss corrective measures.
