The LTSA updates the land title register each time a change is made to the registered title.
Changes are made to title when a property is bought or sold, a mortgage is paid off, or a registrable interest, such as a mortgage, is created or modified. Changes may also occur following the death of a spouse, divorce or marriage.
Nearly one million registrations are completed annually.
Hire a Professional to Assist
The LTSA recommends that property owners consult a professional for land title registration.
Legal professionals can advise on issues with respect to land ownership that may have far reaching effects on estate planning, taxation and other legal matters.
Any change to a title, even changes that seem minor, may have major legal repercussions and other consequences.
Using legal professionals to submit changes to your title minimizes the risk of fraudulent activity against titles, and the security of the land title system is enhanced by the vigilance provided by legal and other professionals.
However, if you prepare properly executed documents that meet the statutory requirements, land title employees will accept them for registration.
