Zoning Directory

When you are considering a purchase in Sun Peaks, one of the most important things to know is which properties are zoned to accommodate short term rentals and which are not.

To help you identify the properties that best suit you and your family, we have outlined the local zoning bylaws for Sun Peaks properties here. In addition to the zoning bylaw, you’ll also need to understand the charges and covenants registered on specific property titles. A local Buyer’s Agent is a knowledgeable resource who can provide you with copies of these title documents and guide you to understand any and all relevant fees that will be payable. Such fees depend on zoning, Rental Convenants registered on titles and whether you use the property to generate business revenues or not.
