Compliance and Real Property Reports

Letter of Compliance

A Letter of Compliance can tell you things about a property that may otherwise not be known, such as zoning and if there are any open permits on the property. A Letter of Compliance from The City of Red Deer can protect you from future legal problems related to the construction of a home and any improvements which may have taken place. 

You may need a Letter of Compliance if:

  • you want to confirm the zoning of a property
  • you’re purchasing a property which has had interior renovations completed and you want to ensure the work was done with permits
  • you’re purchasing a property which has had a new deck built, a new addition, or a new detached garage completed and you want to ensure the work was done with permits

Who can apply?

An owner or a representative of an owner with a Letter of Authorization (pdf)  from the owner.

How do I apply?

You can apply for your permit by filling out a paper application and submitting your application and a letter detailing the information and/or permit you are requesting in person by visiting Inspections & Licensing on the third floor of City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue) between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

 

Real Property Report

A Real Property Report (RPR) shows your property lines and the location of any buildings and fences on your property. An RPR with a stamp from The City of Red Deer can protect you from future legal problems related to property boundaries and improvements.To obtain a Real Property Report, contact a land surveyor, who will forward the report to The City of Red Deer.

You may need an RPR if:

  • you're building a new structure on your property
  • you need to know about any easements or encroachments
  • you’re buying a new house
  • you’re selling your house
  • you’re in a dispute over property lines with your neighbours or The City

Who can apply?

An owner or a land surveyor.

How do I apply?

You can apply for your permit by filling out a paper application and submitting your application and a minimum of 2 copies of the Real Property Report in person by visiting Inspections & Licensing on the third floor of City Hall (4914 - 48 Avenue) between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
