Update on Requirement for Original Supporting Documents During the COVID-19 Situation

  • March 26, 2020

In response to our customers’ feedback, and further to the guidance provided on March 24, 2020, the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia (LTSA) has updated the list of supporting documents for which a true copy may be used in place of the original document. True copies accepted during the COVID-19 situation now include:

  1.  Certificates from Vital Statistics
    Designates can now submit true copies of supporting documents such as death certificates, marriage certificates, and change of name certificates.
     
  2.  Court Certified Documents
    Documents such as Certificate of Judgement and Certificate of Pending Litigation can also be submitted now as true copies.

 As the COVID-19 situation evolves, current information about land title practice matters will be posted to our website at ltsa.ca and Twitter account @LTSABC.

The LTSA is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our employees and customers while ensuring our business operations continue as usual. Thank you for your continued understanding and support.
