The Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) is pleased to report on the 2019 results from its Quality Verification program. This program was launched in November 2016 to ensure electronic filing subscriber compliance with Part 10.1 of the Land Title Act.

From December 1, 2018 through November 30, 2019, 600 electronically-submitted instruments from legal professionals were randomly selected for verification. Of these 600 instruments, 65% were submitted by lawyers, 30% were submitted by notaries and the remaining 5% were submitted by members of the Authorized Subscriber Register. The vast majority of the randomly-selected instruments were found to be in compliance with legislated requirements. Only 48 of the 600 (or 8% of the total) required further investigation.

In 2018, 39 of 600 randomly-selected instruments (or 6.5% of the total) required remedial action.

Instruments from approximately 20% of all active subscribers are randomly selected for verification each year. Subscribers who do not meet their obligations under Part 10.1 are required to adjust their practice so as to protect the security and reliability of BC’s land title system.
