» Covid-19 - Surveyors as an essential service Important Information

As per the information released by the Alberta Government and Alberta Land Surveyors Association, Surveyors are considered an essential Service. Alberta Land Surveyors, such as those at Axiom Geomatics, continue to be available to safely complete Real Property Reports (RPR) for Real Estate transactions. Although most work performed by surveyors is unaffected by the pandemic situation some modifications to our processes were inevitable. The biggest change relates to surveying the common wall, often called a party wall, between duplexes and row homes. Previously this common wall location would have been surveyed, however given the current health concerns we will not be entering people's houses. The location of this wall will be estimated from the outside and a note to this effect will be placed on the Real Property Report.

These are challenging times for everyone, Axiom Geomatics is doing its part to serve all Albertans during this difficult time. It is also expected that there will be changes to the process for submitting the Real Property Reports to municipalities, we will keep you updated on these changes as we learn about them.If you have any questions or concerns about your RPR please feel free to reach out .

Condominium Services Calgary & Area

Development of a condominium complex is a significant undertaking usually involving a lot of construction surveying at the beginning. Survey services required include the initial municipal construction survey, determination of condo unit boundaries, determination of common property, creation of the condominium plan, municipal approval(s) and registration of land titles. Making changes to an existing development also has its own unique challenges.

Keeping in mind that condominiums are a type of ownership, there are two sub-categories to this ownership:

Bare Land Unit
This is effectively ownership of a piece of land, referred to as a "unit" and you still belong to a condominium. This is a common type of ownership for townhouses. However single-family homes can also be built on this making it appear no different than a subdivision.
Traditional or Building Unit
This is what most people think of when they think of a condo unit and is the type of unit you would find in a multi-story complex or high-rise.

Condominiums are commonly developed in phases. There are multiple techniques for accomplishing this, however all of them are highly complex. Give us a call to discuss the best solution for your project.

It is quite common to take a 30+ year-old building and convert it to a condominium.
