COVID-19 Notice

In order to protect the health and well-being of our employees and customers, the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) is restricting access in all Land Title Offices to only its employees, direct access pass holders and Registry Agents until further notice.

Land Title Office front counters are closed; all other office operations continue as usual. Follow us on Twitter for updates.

As announced on Oct. 14, 2020, the Director of Land Titles began to retire PDF versions of land title forms as of December 13, 2020. Customers are advised to prepare and plan for the scheduled continuing retirement of the PDF versions of land title forms. All forms are currently available in Web Filing. Visit the Web Filing page in myLTSA to start preparing web filing forms.

By law, LTSA staff are not permitted to provide legal advice or assist in completing forms. If you require assistance, please contact a legal professional who can give you advice on compliance with these statutory forms and related matters.

The Land Title Act authorizes the Director of Land Titles to approve forms used by applicants when making applications under the Act. The Land Title Electronic Forms Guidebook (the “Green Book”) contains detailed instructions for most of these forms.

Electronic forms are designed to be filled out using Adobe Acrobat (Standard or Professional edition) in a version listed in the myLTSA System Requirements. The forms cannot be completed with the free Adobe Reader software.

For forms submitted to the Surveyor General, go to Surveyor General Forms.

For forms submitted to the Land Owner Transparency Registry, go to LandTransparency.ca
