Frequently asked questions

What does the application fee cover?

The non-refundable application fee covers the costs of processing the application, including:

  • review of the application and creation of a new file;
  • title search;
  • circulations to various departments;
  • correspondence with the application; and
  • any required notices under the Land Sale By-Law.

If I make an application, will the Town sell me the lands?

The application is a request to the Town to consider the sale of the lands. It does not guarantee the Town will sell any lands. As a landowner, the Town has complete discretion to sell or retain its own lands for any reason.

What other costs will I incur?

In addition to the non-refundable application fee, the applicant will be required to cover the following costs (as applicable):

  • cost of a reference plan;
  • cost to appraise the value of the lands;
  • Council report fee (where the proposed sale requires a report to Council);
  • By-law fee (where the land to be sold is a road);
  • agreement fee;
  • Teraview document fee; and
  • search and registration costs.

What is the value of the land I am interested in?

The Town does not maintain active valuations on Town owned land. Unfortunately, we will not be able to advise you of an approximate value of the land you are interested in purchasing. The fair market value of the land will be determined by an appraiser with an Accredited Appraiser Canadian Institute designation.
