If you are interested in purchasing a bare land condominium unit that already contains structures like a house or garage, you should request a real property report from the seller.
A real property report is a physical land survey prepared by a registered land surveyor. It will show:
- the physical boundaries of the bare land unit;
- the size and location of all structures on the unit;
- any rights of way or easements located on the property; and,
- if the structures on the property comply with municipal bylaws.
These reports are not required for conventional condominiums or bare land condominiums without structures because the condominium plan provides all of the necessary information.
For more detailed information about Real Property Reports, visit the Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association’s information page.
Thank you to the Alberta Real Estate Association for allowing portions of their Condominium A to Z course manual to be adapted for use in this section.
