How do you know if a structure complies with the Ontario Building Code or the City's zoning by-laws? Was the deck attached to the house you're about to buy built correctly and properly inspected? What is the zoning on the property? The City's Building Department can help you get the answers you need.

The Building Department maintains a file on most properties that includes Building Code or by-law-related permits, inspections, orders, notices, and deficiencies relating to construction activity and by-law matters related to that property. The City's standard fee for a property file inquiry is listed below:

  • Written report: $92.00 per Roll Number

Information contained in a property file can only be released to the property owner or a lawyer acting on behalf of an owner. If you are not the property owner, you must submit a signed release from the property owner. Click here to view the Release Form.
