Aug. 9, 2022 - UPDATE - City of Edmonton - Building on Unregistered Lots in Redeveloping Neighbourhoods
The City of Edmonton is extending the ability for all single detached and semi-detached residential developments to be built on unregistered lots. This is in addition to the process that was launched in June for greenfield development (see below).
- The existing lot address is used to apply for the development permits and the tentative address is used for all application documents and drawings, including when applying for New Home Warranty
- Applicants must sign the Pre-registration Risk Waiver
- Applicants may apply for building permit prior to the issuance of the development permit.
- Development Permits issues via this process will not be eligible for the Expedited Infill Pilot program.

City of Edmonton - Building on Unregistered Land moving forward
CHBA-ER has been working closely with the City of Edmonton on building on unregistered land and we're pleased that it is now in effect. This will enable small-scale residential construction (single-detached, semi-detached, row housing up to 4 units) to occur prior to the registration of the lots at Land Titles for entire subdivisions. This will replace the previous showhome agreement process and will apply to all lots within a subdivision and will not require a separate agreement or security.
How it works - Once the water distribution system and road network of a subdivision have been completed, developers may request to proceed with home construction and will receive proposed addresses. Builders can then apply for permits using the proposed address in SelfServe.
CHBA-ER and UDI-ER created a Building on Unregistered Land Working Group that developed a proposal for the City which closely follows the process currently utilized in Calgary.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the City of Edmonton for working with industry on moving these initiatives forward.
