Condominium Conversion Package
Condominium conversions are dealt with under a separate application process. The Condominium Property Act provides the opportunity for landowners to convert existing buildings into condominiums. The Act requires the City's approval prior to registration of such conversions. Approval for a conversion is granted by the signing of a certificate of local authority by the local authority.
Prior to signature, an Alberta Land Surveyor submits the condominium plan to the Subdivision Authority for review. The review consists of comparing the plan to the development permit issued when the building was constructed to ensure the number of suites and the onsite parking required are consistent between the development permit and the condominium plan. The plan is also reviewed with respect to the status of property taxes and compliance with the Alberta Building Code.
Bare Land Condominiums
Bare land condominium developments follow the same application process as subdivisions. Refer to the Subdivision Application Package or contact the Subdivision Officer.
Converting parking stalls is treated as bare land condominiums and is deemed to be an application for subdivision.
The City may prohibit any application with respect to a building that was constructed prior to August 1, 1966, or for which the building permit was issued prior to August 1, 1966, if it considers it proper to do so, as permitted by Section 10(2) of the Condominium Property Act.
