Those individuals who wish to subdivide their property should meet with the Development Officer to discuss the process to follow. At this initial meeting, the Development Officer will provide you with a subdivision application package. The package provides you with basic information required for a subdivision application, a schedule of fees and various forms to complete. There is also an information sheet that outlines the processing of subdivision applications.
Letters of Compliance
Who usually requires a letter of compliance? Requests for this type of letter are usually received by financial institutions or mortgagors of property. This letter, in essence, states that all buildings and developments located on a particular property comply with the municipality's land use bylaw.
In order to issue a letter of compliance, the Development Officer requires a Real Property Report. A Real Property Report is a legal document that illustrates the location of all improvements on the property. A Real Property Report must be duly signed and certified by an Alberta Land Surveyor.
A Real Property Report is a "snap shot" of the property on the date of the survey and should be updated to include any new improvements to the property. In the case that no improvements have been made, the Development Officer will consider using a previous Real Property Report if accompanied by a Statutory Declaration stating that there have been no further developments to the property in order to issue a letter of compliance.
If you require further information regarding subdivision applications, contact the Development Officer at (780) 837-2221 ext. 106.
