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.

The LTSA cannot process requests for records by telephone or email or complete mail-in requests for land title records on microfilm or in paper. The LTSA also cannot answer questions about the information contained on a record or conduct research on your behalf. You will need to hire a professional to assist with those services.

Many LTSA records are stored online. Other older records are stored in microfilm or in paper and housed in one of the LTSA’s three land title offices.
