Building Records

​The Building Division’s Document Services Section may have records for your property.

Types of documents available may include: 

  • Property Survey
  • House Drawings/Blueprint/Floor Layout
  • Building Permit Card
  • Drain Card
  • Certificate of Final Inspection
  • Occupancy Permit
  • Two Unit Dwelling Registration Certificate
  • Other Documentation

There is no guarantee that all types of documentation are available for every property. Some of our documentation is very old. Documentation related to your inquiry may not have been provided to us during the building application process. For example, your new home builder may not have provided us with a copy of your property survey. In addition, we are currently conducting a large scale scanning project to have all of our documentation converted to PDF. Property records may currently be out for scanning.

NEW! All requests for documentation, must be submitted in advance.
