In the City of Calgary, if your RPR is submitted for compliance and is returned with an “Encroachment Advisory” (EA) stamp, it will be sent to the encroachments department for review. If the encroachments department decides there is an encroachment that needs to be addressed, they will provide the applicant with a summary page of the encroachment description, the classification, and the cost to remedy. There are two general categories of remedies for an encroachment, referred to as Schedule A and Schedule B/C.
In a Schedule A, the city requests an Encroachment Consent Letter. This is a relatively simple application (PDF) that can be digitally signed by the homeowner. It is filed with the city for processing and allows for a quicker turn-around to get the advisory stamp voided. The city fee for this application is $50.
In a Schedule B/C, the city requests an Encroachment Agreement. This is a more thorough document that must be physically signed by the homeowner in front of a Commissioner for Oaths. This document gets sent to Land Titles for registration. After registration at Land Titles, the city will void the advisory stamp. This process takes much longer than a Consent Letter and can cost from $200-$900.
