Lot grading is a vital component of new home construction. The purpose of lot grading is to provide good drainage away from buildings and adjacent properties for the benefit of property owners.
Lot Grading and Municipalities
Many municipalities require a Lot Grading Certificate to ensure grading is done properly and in compliance with municipal requirements. Actual requirements vary from municipality to municipality.
What Does a Lot Grading Certificate Show?
A Lot Grading Certificate is a document that can be prepared by an Alberta Land Surveyor. It shows several current elevations of a lot in comparison with design grades that were previously approved by the municipality. It is intended to show where water will drain on a property. The Lot Grading Certificate may need to be submitted to the municipality for rough and final grade approvals. Approval is based on the requirements of a municipality and is subject to their inspection.
If You Require a Lot Grading Certificate
If you require a Lot Grading Certificate, it may be more convenient to contact the Alberta Land Surveyor, if you know who it is, who prepared the subdivision plan or real property report.
