Land Owner Transparency Act – Rules and Filing Requirements

If you require more information on LOTA you may wish to read the information brochure available at the following link or contact your lawyer to assist with filing.

The B.C. Government enacted the Land Owner Transparency Act (“LOTA”) in an effort to prevent tax evasion, fraud, and money laundering. The LOTA came into effect, in full force, on November 30, 2020.  The purpose of LOTA is to establish a new registry for disclosing the beneficial ownership of land in B.C. 

The thrust of the Law is to “drill down” from the registered owner of the land, through any and all layers of entities to find out the particulars of the Individual owner who are the beneficial owners of that land.
