Important Notice Regarding System Changes
Posted Monday, March 29, 2021 

System changes have been made to support the legislated Pending Registration Queue (PRQ) that takes effect April 1, 2021.
An overview of the new PRQ,  including visual examples can be found here. 

 

Land Titles & Surveys can no longer provide fax notification or Certified Copies of Titles (CCT’s) at the time of registration.
CCT’s must be ordered from Spin2 and will contain Pending Registration Information on the current title. Additionally, clients can now find their Customer Registration Notices and Notice of Deficiency documents in the Registration Information area under the DRR tab,  which can be added to the shopping cart free of charge. Land Titles will still return the paper Customer Registration Notice and Notice of Deficiency along with any documents to the requester in the same manner requested on the DRR.  

 

Note: DRR’s submitted to Land Titles prior to March 28, 2021 will still receive fax notification and CCT’s

 

Questions or concerns can be emailed to LTO@gov.ab.ca

Important Notice Regarding the Pending Registration Queue (PRQ)
Posted Monday, March 8, 2021 

Legislation has been passed to create a pending registration queue (PRQ) to improve efficiency through a statutory guarantee of priority for title registrations that have been submitted and receipt of which has been confirmed  by Land Titles. The PRQ will allow transactions to close on a more timely basis, with less risk through a guarantee of priority covered by the Land Titles Assurance Fund. These changes are scheduled to be implemented on April 1, 2021.
