Authorization to Receive Confidential Property Information
This form is to be completed and signed by the property owner (or authorized signatory) before BC Assessment may release confidential property information to a person who is acting on the property owner’s behalf. This form is not required for residential properties that accommodate fewer than three families (in such cases, the owner simply has to provide written authority to release confidential information). For additional information on this form, please refer to the Authorization to Receive Confidential Information Fact Sheet.
