Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Real Property Report (RPR)? – A Real Property Report is a legal document that clearly establishes both the boundaries and improvements such as buildings, fences and driveways on a property. The report is composed of a drawing of the physical features of the property and a written statement of the Surveyor's observations or concerns. An RPR can be relied upon by the buyer, the seller, the lender and the municipality as an accurate representation of the improvements on your property.

It eliminates potential for confusion over what is being sold and identifies any potential concerns, such as bylaw infractions prior to transfer of ownership.
