By law, LTSA staff are not permitted to provide legal advice or assist in completing forms. If you require assistance, please contact a legal professional who can give you advice on compliance with these statutory forms and related matters.
Online forms for LOTR are available to legal professionals in myLTSA Enterprise. A transparency declaration and transparency report must be completed and filed electronically in myLTSA by a legal professional. The below paper/offline forms for the transparency declaration and transparency report cannot be filed electronically.
Once a reporting body has filed a transparency report, there are some ongoing requirements under LOTA.
The below paper/offline versions of a transparency declaration and transparency report can only be filed in limited circumstances where manual filing is permitted, i.e., where transparency records are required to be filed with a land title application and the land title application is not filed electronically.
- Transparency declaration (paper/offline form)
- Example of a completed paper/offline transparency declaration for individuals who are not a reporting body (including transmission to surviving joint tenant and executor/administrator applications)
- Transparency report (paper/offline form)
Five Common Errors to Avoid
The five most common reasons that paper applications are sent back because of LOTR are:
- The LOTR forms are missing mandatory information
- Use of correction fluid (wite-out) on the form
- LOTR forms are required with the land title submission and they are missing
- There is no transparency report filed when the transferee is indicated as a reporting body
- Photocopy of Transparency Declaration and Transparency Report submitted
The below forms are required to be submitted online in myLTSA. An Enterprise account must be used for legal professionals and an Explorer account must be used for individuals. The only exception to this is for applications under section 40 where filing electronically would create an undue hardship. In those cases, the applicant must contact the Administrator to request a paper form for the application.
- Notice to the Administrator under section 17.1 (Corporation)
- Notice to the Administrator under section 17.1 (Partnership)
- Notice to the Administrator under section 17.1 (Trust)
- Application to Omit Information if Health or Safety at Risk under section 40 (Interest Holder or Settlor)
- Application to Omit Information if Health or Safety at Risk under section 40 (Individual who is a Reporting Body)
- Application to Correct or Change Information under section 42 (Corporation)
- Application to Correct or Change Information under section 42 (Individual)
