In This Volume

This chapter in the Manual sets out fees payable under the Land Title Act. Fees are established in one of three ways:

  1. under s. 386 of the Act, by regulation of the Lieutenant Governor in Council in relation to a matter set out in regulations;
  2. under s. 386.1 of the Act, in Schedule 2 to the Act; or
  3. under s. 386.1 of the Act, by bylaw of the Board of Directors of the Land Title and Survey Authority with respect to matters included in Schedule 2 to the Act or other matters.

The Land Title and Survey Authority (LTSA) and the Government of British Columbia have entered into an agreement for the purpose of sharing fees owing under the Land Title Act. The government’s share of the fees is set out in Schedule 2 to the Land Title Act. The LTSA fees are set out in Part 13 of the LTSA bylaws. The Table of Land Title and Survey Authority Fees incorporated in this chapter in the Manual consolidates the fees authorized under s. 386.1 of the Act and the fees established by the LTSA. An electronic version of the Table of Fees is also available at ltsa.ca.

Included in this chapter is a more detailed listing of fees prepared by the land title office, highlighting fees for the most common land title transactions.

Note that in Schedule 2 to the Land Title Act:

  • “original fee”, in relation to a pending application, means the fee payable under section 386.1(1)(a) when the application is tendered;
  • “specified family order” means
  • (a) an order respecting child support or spousal support under the Family Law Act, or
  • (b) a maintenance order within the meaning of the Family Maintenance Enforcement Act.
