Transfer of Fee Simple Title
Once a title is registered in the Fee Simple Register it can be transferred without restriction.
The Nisga’a Land Title Office needs to be able to verify the identity of the parties to the transaction.
At least two of the following are required for each transferor and transferee:
- BC Driver’s Licence or BCID
- Other Driver’s Licence
- Birth Certificate
- Nisga’a Citizenship Card
- Certificate of Indian Status Card
In order to transfer fee simple title it is necessary to complete a Form A , which is available from the Nisga’a Land Title office and this website. The Land Title Office staff can assist you to ensure that the form is filled out correctly, although they are not permitted to fill out the form for you.
It is also necessary for the transferor (or each transferor, if there is more than one) to have his or her signature on the Form A witnessed by a lawyer or notary public. There is generally a fee for this service by the witness.
The transfer of the title has no legal effect until the Form A is registered.
The registration fee must be paid in full before the application can be processed. Please see the Fees page for current fees.
