Required for conditional certificate of compliance.


  • If the certificate is requested for a portion of one APN, then a plan or map showing the entire APN with the area pertaining to the requested certificate highlighted or shaded should be included with the application.
  • If the deed includes an exception or more than one lot, parcel or description, the applicant must note on the deed which parcel, lot, description or exception pertains to the requested certificate of compliance.
  • Each copy of the deed must include the entire deed, with no pages missing.  The copies of the deeds must be clearly readable, with recording dates and numbers clearly shown.
  • A conditional certificate of compliance may be required if lot legality cannot be determined.  In that case, the applicant will be required to provide additional recorded deeds, including a continuous chain of title/deeds for the property, starting with the deed recorded prior to June 25, 1969.
  • Professional assistance maybe required for deed research and document preparation.
