Compliance Certificates

Compliance certificates are increasingly being called for when real estate is sold. The request for a compliance certificate will either come from you the homeowner, the lawyer who is dealing the sale transaction of home, a realtor who has the listing, or a bank. A compliance certificate is verification that any buildings and/or structures located on your property have met the setback requirements of the Land Use Bylaw. A compliance certificate is not a legislative requirement but rather a service provided by Lamont County.

Applying for a Compliance Certificate

A compliance certificate request must be made in writing to the Planning and Development Department. The request must include:
  • Two original Real Property Reports prepared by an Alberta Land Surveyor.
  • The applicant’s name, address, and phone number (if they want to be called when the certificate is issued).
