2019 brings many cost increases from The City of Calgary and the price of a compliance stamp is now $199 (about an 18% increase from last year's price).

An updated real property report (RPR) with City of Calgary compliance stamp is vital for a smooth and timely real estate transaction and should be ordered as soon as possible by a homeowner.

The City of Calgary now offers compliance to land surveys via electronic upload - when choosing a survey company, check to be sure they offer a compatible secure format. Before uploading to the City, review the survey to be sure it will comply (structures, fences and additions all comply with proper land use by-laws).

If, for example, a fence is found to be in the wrong location it is often easier and less expensive to move the fence that apply and pay for an encroachment agreement.
