The Alberta Land Surveyor's Real Property Report is reviewed by a development officer to see if it meets the current Zoning Bylaw regulations and that development permits have been issued for all buildings and structures shown.
The Real Property Report (RPR) must be prepared and signed by a Certified Alberta Land Surveyor. The RPR must show:
- All existing buildings and structures on the property, including fences and sheds
- The distances from existing buildings and structures to property lines
- The date of the survey
- The address and legal description of the property, and
- It also must be stamped with the surveyor's seal
- If everything complies with the current Zoning Bylaw and if all of the buildings and/or structures shown on the Real Property Report have the required permits, the Compliance Certificate Report will indicate that everything complies.
If the buildings and/or structures on a property have permits according to a prior Zoning Bylaw requirement, but fail to meet the current Zoning Bylaw requirements, the applicant will receive a Compliance Certificate Report indicating that their buildings and/or structures are nonconforming. In this situation, the appropriate permits are in place and no further action is required.
If the appropriate permits or encroachment agreements for some of the structures have not been applied for, the applicant will receive a report indicating what the issue is and what actions the applicant must take to correct the issue. (for example, apply for an encroachment agreement, remove the structure, apply for permits, et cetera).
