Front Counters Open By Appointment Only Alert Level: LOW

Please be aware that LTSA’s Land Title Office front counters are open by appointment only to protect the safety of our customers and staff. Customers can contact the Customer Service Centre on 1-877-577-LTSA (5872) to book an in-person visit.

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. Currently, there are two types of electronic forms that may be submitted: EFS PDF forms and Web Filing forms.

Web Filing forms are accessed through the Web Filing menu option in myLTSA Enterprise. The forms do not use downloadable templates and instead, are created online. A Web Filing form must be completed in compliance with the directions provided in the  Web Filing Form Practice Guides which offers comprehensive practice information for completing land title Web Filing forms.

EFS PDF forms are being replaced by Web Filing forms. PDF forms are designed to be filled out using Adobe Acrobat (Standard or Professional edition) in a version listed in the myLTSA System Requirements. Only four forms remain active and available for download. An EFS PDF form must be completed in compliance with the directions provided in the Directions for Completing EFS Forms which contains detailed instructions for completing EFS PDF forms. 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

Forms for Members of the Public

The Director of Land Titles has authorized the use of the BC Services card to verify identity and electronically sign forms for online submissions. The authorization is set out in the E-filing Directions.

If you don’t have a BC Services card, you can still fill out the form online then submit a hardcopy (paper) form by mail or in-person.

Forms for Manual Filing

Manual filing of hardcopy (paper) land title forms is limited by requirements to file forms electronically. The E-filing Directions sets out requirements for e-filing documents and includes a table of applications that are exempt from the requirement to submit the document electronically. See the E-filing Directions, Section 6 for more about e-filing requirements.

The Ministry of Finance, Property Transfer Tax Branch, also provides a form for manual filing of Surviving Joint Tenant property transfer tax forms:

Please refer to the Property Transfer Tax web page for more information. Questions can be directed to pttenq@gov.bc.ca or by calling 236-478-1593 or toll free within BC 1-888-841-0090.

Manual versions of a transparency declaration and transparency report can only be filed in limited circumstances, i.e., where transparency records are required to be filed with a land title application and the land title application is not filed electronically. Please refer to LandTransparency.ca for more information.
