FORMS

Use of Form 17 with General Instrument Reserving an Interest in Land to Transferor

See the General Instrument Form Completion Instructions in the Green Book which provide that, on submission to the land title office of an instrument attached to a Form C, a separate application is not necessary unless the instrument also creates, excepts or reserves an interest in land in favour of the transferor that is capable of registration under the Land Title Act. In that case, in addition to submitting the Form C, the transferor must apply to register that interest in Form 17.

Submissions

For an electronic submission of a Form C that contains an Exception, Reservation, or Condition, the Exception, Reservation, or Condition must be clearly defined in Item 3 of the electronic Form C. The transferor must apply to register that interest in an electronic Form 17 Charge, Notation or Filing.
