Owner's Authorization Form signed by the property owner(s). If the property is a strata, authorization from the Strata Council is also required.

What are the costs associated with obtaining property file information?

The fee for a property information request is $30 an hour. A typical request takes 1.5 hours, totaling $47.25 with GST included. Any complex requests requiring additional time beyond the initial 1.5 hours will incur a further $30 per hour fee.

Fees are payable by cash, cheque or debit, or by credit card online. (you will receive an email with a link to pay online). Upon receipt of payment, files are sent via One Drive.

In addition, homeowners requesting information prior to submission of a building permit can have the property information request fee applied as a credit towards their building permit fees, with proof of payment.
