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?
