Certificate of Compliance

A Certificate of Compliance from the County of Northern Lights is a document confirming that the developments on your property align with Land Use Bylaw requirements. A certificate of Compliance is most often requested by financial and legal institutions. It's important to note that the County does not inspect the property itself, but rather certifies only the improvements listed on your Real Property Report.

  • Two copies of a Real Estate Property Report prepared by an accredited Land Surveyor conducted on the subject parcel within 6 months from the date of the request

  • A current Certificate of Title of the parcel

  • A Statutory Declaration of the current land use of the parcel

  • Applicable fees, as per the Schedule of Fees Bylaw
