COVID-19 Notice

In order to protect the health and well-being of our employees and customers, the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) is restricting access in all Land Title Offices to only its employees, direct access pass holders and Registry Agents until further notice.

Land Title Office front counters are closed; all other office operations continue as usual. Follow us on Twitter for updates.

Land title services are delivered by the LTSA’s Customer Operations division.
The Director of Customer Operations is responsible for the examination of applications, and the Registrar of Land Titles oversees the registration of applications across our three land title offices. Applications are typically submitted by lawyers, notaries, land surveyors and Authorized Subscriber Register members.

The Registrar of Land Titles is responsible for the integrity of the land title system. Three Deputy Registrars support the Register by being accountable for all registration decisions within their respective land title offices.

According to the Land Title Act, customer operations staff can provide information about land title practice requirements, how to search the register and what registrations have occurred. They are experts in land title registration matters and can be counted on to be impartial.

However, they are not legal professionals and are strictly prohibited by law from advising about legal rights or actions associated with land titles and charges. For some examples on what we can and cannot help with review Services Provided by LTSA.

If you need more help than we can provide, consider hiring a professional. Learn why this might be a good option for you.
