Property File Information

Property File Requests can be useful when purchasing a property or planning a renovation.

The City of Penticton provides access to property records and information related to properties while ensuring that the privacy of property owners is protected.

There is no guarantee that the City will have plans or records on file for all properties.

Requests can be made in person at City Hall or by email at For all requests be sure to provide the Request for Property File Information form [PDF - 97 KB].  Fees to request files, copying and for File Search Letters (Comfort Letters) will be required accordingly. 

You will receive an initial request confirmation when your form is submitted.  

The release of records by the City of Penticton is subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the Strata Property Act, and Canadian Copyright Act.
