The Land Title and Survey Authority of BC (LTSA) has introduced enhancements for LTSA’s online applications for property owners to change mailing address on title and file a Claim of Builders Lien. Available on LTSA.ca, these applications improve access for property owners to file common land title applications.
Effective December 17, 2023, the following enhancements are available:
- Applicants can now order a State of Title Certificate for any of the Parcel Identifiers (PIDs) in the application as proof of registration with a change of mailing address or Claim of Builders Lien application. Once the application is registered, updated State of Title Certificates are delivered via Canada Post.
- Applicants can now update their occupation on title at the same time as filing a change of mailing address application.
- Applicants who submit online using their BC Services Card will now receive confirmation by email when their application is registered. Online submissions now also allow for online payment by VISA or Mastercard for any requested State of Title Certificates.
Filing a Corrective Declaration or Withdrawing an Application
- A new online service allows applicants who filed a change of mailing address on title or Claim of Builders Lien application to revise that application if they are notified of issues preventing its registration.
- Applicants who have filed online will be notified by email if there is a problem with their application and will be provided a unique URL to revise the application. The applicant must file a corrective declaration by its expiry date by logging in with the same BC Services Card used to submit their original application. Applicants not wishing to file a corrective declaration will have an online option to withdrawal their application.
- Applicants who have filed by mail or in person will be notified via Canada Post if there are issues with their application and will be required to file a Corrective Declaration by its expiry date by mail or by appointment at a land title office in New Westminster, Victoria or Kamloops.
Additionally, effective October 1, 2023, in adherence with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA), applications in the land title register submitted by members of the public will no longer disclose the applicant’s email address or phone number.
