Request for STR Authorization: Primary Residence Verification Form for Owners and Tenants

According to our strata’s bylaw 3 (1) (d) – “An owner, tenant, occupant or visitor must not use a strata lot, the common property or common assets in a way that is illegal…”


Therefore, in an effort to better enforce our strata’s bylaws, the council has decided to review each request for short term rental authorization letter in order to validate the use of the unit as a primary residence as required by the City of Vancouver under section 11.9.1 (a) of the Zoning and Development By-law.


Please fill out the form below in order for the strata council to determine whether you actually live in the unit as required by law.


The information that you choose to share in this form, together with statements from building staff and neighbors (should the strata wish to obtain) as well as key FOB and video records (should you decide to grant us permission to access those records) will be used in the decision of whether to provide a Short Term Rental authorization letter to the City of Vancouver.


Your privacy is important to us and all the information you decide to share is dealt with in a manner compliant with our strata’s privacy policy and privacy legislation. When you submit or share any documents, please make sure to redact any unnecessary information for privacy reasons. The only information that is needed is the name and address on each document.

Should you wish to grant us permission to access Key FOB and Video records, we would be more than willing to dedicate the time and effort required to review them and identify evidence that confirms your residency. Please note that privacy is of paramount importance to the Council, and any information obtained during this review will be handled with utmost discretion, shared only with the members involved in the decision-making process.
