Certificate of Compliance


A Certificate of Compliance is a determination by the local agency (the Planning Department) over whether a parcel of land was or was not created in compliance with the Subdivision Map Act in effect at the time the parcel was divided.  Any person owning real property or a person, pursuant to a contract of sale of real property, may request a Certificate of Compliance. Such a request could arise from uncertainty on the part of the owner, purchaser or Title Company as to the legality of a parcel with respect to County Codes or the Subdivision Map Act.
