This section outlines what a Compliance Certificate is and how to apply for one.
What is a Compliance Certificate?
A Compliance Certificate is a confirmation from the City of Wetaskiwin that the location of the building(s) on a site complies with the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw. It does not regulate or enforce building code requirements. A Compliance Certificate is usually required by lending agencies and/or lawyers in the sale of property and/or mortgage approval in order to protect their clients' investments. Standard real estate purchase contracts often require the vendor to obtain a Compliance Certificate. A Compliance Certificate is not a legislative requirement, but rather a service provided by the City of Wetaskiwin.
