calgary condo guide to condo plansA Condominium Plan is a drawing prepared by a surveyor which shows, among other things:

  • The common area
  • The area of each Unit
  • The boundaries of each individual Unit
  • The boundaries of the Condominium plan
  • The Unit Factor for each Unit and, sometimes the basis for determining the unit factor
  • Areas of common property were an owner is permitted to exercise exclusive possession

The Condominium Plan number is a 7 digit number. The first 2 digits represent the year the plan was registered (which is the same time that the corporation is created) and the 3rd digit represents which land registry district the plan was registered in.“1” is Alberta South and “2” is Alberta North- Innisfail is the dividing line between North and South.

In addition if the parking or storage lockers are leased or titled they too will be visible on the condo plan for you to reference.
