What is a real property report?
A real property report is a survey document prepared by an Alberta land surveyor that shows the location of all buildings and other visible improvements situated on a parcel of land, including their distance from the property boundaries. Any easements or rights of way registered against the title of the property at the date of the survey will also be shown.

In preparing a real property report, the surveyor is required to note any visible encroachments that extend onto the property or from the property onto other adjoining lands, including county reserve lands.

The real property report is a legal document that you can rely upon as an accurate representation of the development existing on a piece of land.
