Information for Municipalities

Starting February 1, 2014 every new home built in Alberta will need warranty coverage. This means that all building permits for new home construction applied for after February 1, 2014 will need to meet the requirements of the New Home Buyer Protection Act.

As a municipality, you are responsible for confirming the warranty coverage or authorization is in place and for retaining proof of verification. More information on how to verify a proof of warranty is available in the NHBPS Permit Issuer User Manual (PDF).

New details will be added to this page as they become available. Please continue to check back to keep yourself up to date.
