How to Spot a Bylaw Infraction

Double Fence

Real Property Reports ensure your clients know exactly what they are buying.

What do you see?

Do you see the two fences on the right side of the picture? Ambiguity is not a good sign. Does the side yard look narrow to you? Our survey verified the position of the property line and we also confirmed this in-fill townhouse was improperly positioned. This scenario might have a significant affect on the value of the property.

What to do next

The size of this side yard is specified within a land use bylaw (R-C2). In this case, the set-back requirement is 1.20m from the foundation to the property line. The city confirmed the townhouse was too close to the property line. On behalf of the client, we applied for and received a Development Permit for a relaxation of the bylaw. With the permit in hand, the real estate transaction was completed.
