Property Record Request

The Resort Municipality of Whistler may have records of building plans and associated permits for your property.

If you are the registered owner or an authorized agent, you can submit an online Property Record Request.

Records that may be provided in a Property Record Request:

  • Building Plans
  • Building permit
  • Inspection report and deficiencies
  • Occupancy certificate or file completion

Once a completed request is submitted, it may take up to 20 business days before we complete your request, depending on the volume of requests and staff workload.

If requesting a replacement site copy of your approved building permit, the drawings will be provided to you in paper copy. Please note that copies will be printed to the same size as the original set of plans.

Your RMOW-approved site copy plans are required to be onsite during any building inspections.

Before applying:

Comfort letters

A comfort letter is a formal letter provided by municipal staff who prepare an overview of the property, based on municipal records. A comfort letter does not provide copies of the documents.  

This information can include (but is not limited to):

  • Any outstanding violations against the property
  • A written record of permits and occupancy dates
  • Confirmation of zoning
  • Fire inspection dates (only for commercial/industrial properties)
  • Any outstanding invoices against the property

A comfort letter can be requested by the registered owner or for legal purposes (by a lawyer, notary or other legal professional.)

Timeframe: A comfort letter can take up to eight weeks to process depending on the complexity of the request.

Fees: Are determined depending on the amount of staff time. Staff will process the request once payment has been received.

Owners can submit a request for comfort letter via email to buildingdept@whistler.ca  

Additional information

Requests for copies of information that is not provided through routine channels may require a formal Freedom Of Information (FOI) Request and should be directed to the office of the municipal clerk.
