Compliance certificates are increasingly being called for when real estate is sold. The request for a compliance certificate will either come from you the homeowner, the lawyer who is dealing the sale transaction of home, a realtor who has the listing, or a bank. A compliance certificate is verification that any buildings and/or structures located on your property have met the setback requirements of the Land Use Bylaw. A compliance certificate is not a legislative requirement but rather a service provided by Lamont County.
