REGULATIONS AND FORMS

See s. 14.14 of the Strata Property Regulation, B.C. Reg. 43/2000, at chapter 57 (Strata Property Regulations) in this Manual, which provides that, when a resolution designating limited common property is filed in the land title office, the registrar must note the designation of the limited common property on the common property record for the strata plan.

PRACTICE

Designation of Limited Common Property Not to Conflict with Previous Designation

Before filing the resolution and sketch plan required under this section, the strata corporation should ensure that the designation of limited common property does not conflict with a previous designation. The registrar confirms that the limited common property is in fact common property and that it does not encroach on any previously established limited common property.

Sketch Plan

The registrar requires a sketch plan that fully delineates the limited common property and, unless obvious from the accompanying resolution, clearly shows to which lot or lots the limited common property is being assigned. The sketch plan must define the dimensions of the limited common property and its position in relation to buildings and lot boundaries.

The sketch plan attached to an electronic submission must be larger than 4" × 6" and no larger than 8.5" × 14". See the scanning requirements for electronic submissions at help.ltsa.ca/myltsa-enterprise/scanning-requirements.
