Compliance Requests

When you sell your home, the buyer may ask for a Real Property Report (RPR) with a compliance certificate. The City of Spruce Grove provides a review of property to ensure compliance with Land Use Bylaw requirements.

A Development Officer reviews your application to ensure there is total compliance. That means

  • all the existing developments on the property have the required development permits, and
  • structures meet all setback, separation, distance and use regulations.

If your property is compliant with the Land Use Bylaw, you will receive a signed RPR back with a stamp. If your property does not comply, you will receive a letter stating why. You may be required to take corrective action as directed by the City.

The applicant may correct the issues and request an updated compliance (re-stamp) within six months (additional fee).
