The Legal Importance of a Recent Location Certificate

The certificate of location is essential to all real estate transactions. To produce the documents that make up the certificate (a plan and a report), the land surveyor uses their knowledge and expertise to make a professional judgment regarding the current state and condition of the property and building.

Many elements are addressed in producing a certificate of location, such as:

  • Ensuring that the title deeds, cadastres and occupancy match
  • Various infringements
  • Servitude
  • Potential flood zones

To prepare a certificate of location, the land-surveying experts has many steps to follow, including a property register search. The expert must also:

  • Conduct a lot survey
  • Analyze the property
  • Create an implementation plan
  • Write a detailed report

The land surveyors also take the following elements into account:

  • A location and building description
  • The current condition of the building in regards to the following laws:
    • Agricultural activities and territory protection laws
    • Cultural heritage laws
    • Housing laws
    • Aeronautic laws
  • Notices of expropriation or reserves for public needs
  • Municipal laws
  • Protection and flood zones

The certificate of location is a private document of confidential matter and is only shared with the client and concerned parties. The certificate of location must in no way be used to attempt to establish property limitations or to start any connected construction work. Such actions require staking or implantation operations.

To sum up, a certificate of location constitutes a concrete proof of a building’s conformity to laws and regulations in play.

This document is essential and regulated by the Règlement sur la norme de pratique relative au certificat de localisation de l’Ordre des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec (L.R.Q., c. A-23, r. 10).
