This service requires you to send a secured pdf of the Real Property Report, with the password via email to The City and will take up to three days to process.This product allows certified users to submit materials to Inspection and Permit Services in application for a Certificate of Compliance. A Certificate of Compliance is a confirmation from The City of Calgary, that the location of the building(s) on the site comply with the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw. It does not regulate or enforce any building code requirements. A Certificate of Compliance is usually required by lending agencies and/or lawyers in the sale of property and/or mortgage approval in order to protect their clients' investments. Standard real estate purchase contracts often require the vendor to obtain a Compliance Certificate. A Certificate of Compliance is not a legislative requirement but rather a service provided by The City of Calgary. The City does not require you to get a Compliance Certificate.
Digital Submissions for a certificate of compliance can only be processed if the digital file submitted was created, digitally signed, and secured by a Licensed Alberta Surveyor. Scanned copies of RPRs are not acceptable. Customers with printed Real Property Reports should apply for their certificate of compliance in person: 3rd floor of the City of Calgary Municipal Building (800 Macleod Tr SE); in many cases the process can be completed while you are at the customer service counter.
