The Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) has introduced several Web Filing enhancements to increase accuracy and efficiency in the myLTSA submission process by streamlining workflows and reducing Quality Verification issues.
New functionality enables editable forms to move between unsubmitted packages. Forms ‘in review’ cannot be moved unless customers cancel the review to regain access to the form. Using a common submission scenario as an example, customers with a package containing a Form A, B and C (Release) can now submit Forms A and B, after moving the Form C (Release) to a new or other package for a follow up submission.

For submitted packages (status field: pending), customers can ‘withdraw’ a form and move it to another package. Both the original and new package will note the document was moved.
Customers are reminded not to delete original Web Filing forms after execution; this action will likely result in the issuance of a defect notice under Quality Verification should the form be recreated later. Instead, customers are advised to move the original instrument to another package.
Deleting Signed Forms
Customers will be prevented from deleting forms that are electronically signed. If deletion is required, customers can edit the document to remove the electronic signature. When an execution copy exists, do not delete the original form; recreating a form is not permitted under Part 10.1. Review scenarios when forms can and cannot be deleted.
