If you purchased a real property report when the amalgamation between the town land (formerly WID land) and your lakefront property you need to act now. The town of Chestermere will not give a stamp of compliance or certificate of non-compliance, if the RPR is over one year old.  You will need a current real property report with compliance (or certificate of non-compliance) when you go to sell your home.  If you have made no changes such as new decks, retaining walls, etc.  then your rpm that has a stamp from the town of Chestermere will be adequate to satisfy the requirements of the buyer's lawyer.  Almost all Lakefront properties will not get a stamp of compliance, because of the new bylaws regarding docks and out-buildings.  Instead you will likely get an additional comment on the RP...
