Most Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) services fees, including Land Owner Transparency Registry fees will increase by a small amount as of April 1, 2023. LTSA uses revenue from fees to cover operational costs and address the impact of inflation.
Under the LTSA’s Operating Agreement with the Province, LTSA may increase its service fees under the Land Title Act, Land Act, Mineral Tenure Act, and Oil and Gas Activities Act annually by the adjusted Consumer Price Index (CPI) amount. LTSA reviews the need for a CPI increase annually, yet the process may not always result in a fee change. The previous fee increase took effect in 2022.
Land Title Act service fees are payable to LTSA and remitted to both LTSA and the Province. For Land Title Act services, the fee increase will only be applied to LTSA’s portion of fees, resulting in a net increase of 2.5% to the overall customer fee. The myLTSA service charges, Land Owner Transparency fees and other LTSA administrative fees will increase by approximately 5%. View current LTSA fees and projected fees as of April 1, 2023.
As a regulated, not-for-profit statutory authority, LTSA reinvests cash from operations to continually add value in the public interest. Since its creation in 2005, LTSA has invested over $100 million to maintain operational excellence and strengthen core systems which supports ongoing enhancements and future innovations.
