How to Spot an Encroachment – Window Wells?
People are often surprised when they see window wells included on Real Property Reports. Consider for a moment what could happen when you install a window well inside a right-of-way where cables and gas lines may be present.
In the City of Calgary, window wells are subject to set back requirements, just like eaves and cantilevers.
Not all window wells are created equally
If you see larger than usual window wells, as pictured below, or window wells which might be inside a right-of-way, as pictured above, it is in your best interest to investigate promptly. A Real Property Report may reveal the need for an encroachment agreement or development permit with the City of Calgary.
Let us know if you need guidance with either of these processes.
