The Benefits of an Up-to-Date Certificate of Location
While partaking in a real estate transaction, both the buyer and the seller may ask you for a certificate of location. Other parties may require this document, including:

- A loaner or investor
- An evaluator
- A notary
- A municipality
Accurately Describe the Current Condition of a Building
A certificate of location details the title deeds, cadastre, occupancy as well as applicable laws and regulations.
To produce a certificate of location, the land surveyor must take the following steps:
- Perform searches in the land register
- Survey the area
- Analyze the land
- Produce a plan and report
The land-surveying expert must also consider elements such as the matching of title deeds and cadastres, the conformity to applicable laws, infringements, servitude and flood zones. Everything is considered!
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 applicable laws and regulations.
It is a dense and complex document in which many elements are considered and is 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).
