Introducing Web Filing

Web Filing forms can now be accessed through the Web Filing menu option in myLTSA. The Director of Land Titles will begin to retire PDF versions of land title forms as of December 13, 2020.

The introduction of Web Filing forms is one of several steps towards streamlining land title submissions, increasing efficiency and accuracy, and maintaining a secure and reliable electronic filing system. The LTSA is working with major conveyancing software vendors to assist them with integrating modernized electronic filing capabilities into their software packages.

How to Initiate a Web Filing Submission

Web Filing is separate from the existing Electronic Filing System (EFS). There are a few easy steps to completing a Web Filing form:

  • Begin by entering data directly into a Web Filing form
  • Once the form is completed, download and print the filled-in execution copy
  • Execute and witness the execution copy, then return to the Web Filing form to true up the electronic instrument.
  • E-sign and submit the Web Filing form using myLTSA.

  • Improved Validation: Web Filing delivers comprehensive form and package validation, supported by more contextual information to minimize the possibility of submitting defects.
  • Minimal Business Disruption:  Web Filing has evolved to introduce improvements over several steps because the LTSA recognizes the risks associated with significant and rapid change, including impacts to our customers’ business. During the transition to Web Filing, a combination of PDF form templates and Web Filing forms will be accepted in Land Title packages.
  • Customer Support: Customers are supported with live webinars, pre-recorded instructional videos, online and in-form help content, and our knowledgeable customer service and technical support teams.
  • Robust Reliability and Security: The use of Juricert and other security features are retained as key components of information integrity and security in the land title register. Subscribers complete a one-time registration of their Juricert Digital Certificate on myLTSA, and apply a digital signature to Web Filing forms using myLTSA instead of PDF software.
