Compliance Requests

When selling your home, you may be asked by the purchaser to provide a real property report with a compliance certificate as a condition of sale. As a service to the community, the City of Spruce Grove provides a review of a property to ensure compliance with Land Use Bylaw requirements.  

Upon receipt of your compliance request, a Development Officer will review the application together with the City property files and Land Use Bylaw to ensure that there is total compliance. This means that all the existing developments on the property have the required development permits and that structures meet all setback, separation distance or use regulations.

If your property is in compliance with the Land Use Bylaw, you will receive an original Real Property Report (RPR) back with a stamp indicating compliance and signed by a Development Officer.  If your property does not comply, you will receive a letter stating all facts, findings, shortcomings, and the City's position.  You may be required to take corrective action as directed by the City.

The applicant may attend to rectifying these issues and request an updated compliance (re-stamp) within 6 months of the date of the letter, for the fee indicated below.
