Registration Requirements to Transmit a Property to an Administrator

Upon a review of the requirements to register a transmission of property into the name of an administrator appointed pursuant to an order issued under sections 103 or 132 of the Wills, Estates and Succession Act (WESA), the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC (LTSA) is issuing the following guidance.

Orders made pursuant to sections 103 and 132 of WESA do not result in a grant of administration and do not meet the requirements of section 266 of the Land Title Act. To meet the statutory requirements for such a transmission, an order must not only contain the appointment of the administrator but also direct the vesting of property into their name. For an example of an order issued pursuant to section 103 and 132 of WESA that contain appropriate vesting language, customers can review the precedents provided in the CLEBC Probate and Estate Administration Practice Manual.
