Exemption for Access Lots

See s. 2 of the Land Title Act (Board of Directors) Regulation, B.C. Reg. 332/2010, which provides an exemption from s. 158 to facilitate the creation of an access lot by a separate plan and enables the registration of an owner’s undivided interest in that lot in the same indefeasible title as the owner’s contiguous parcel of land for which access was required.
