Temporary address changes
We can only record one address for each registered owner at a time. If you have a temporary address, you need to change your address again once the address change occurs. All statements and tax notices are mailed to the last-known address.
If you have deferred your property taxes and have an open account, you can change your tax deferment address by phone:
- 250 387-0555
- Toll free 1 888 355-2700
You're responsible for making sure your property ownership records are correct. This is important as property assessments and property tax notices are sent to the last-known address of the owner(s) on record.
You can make ownership changes to the land title for your property through the Land Title and Survey Authority of British Columbia, such as:
You can make ownership changes to your manufactured home by contacting the Manufactured Home Registry.
You can make tenure changes to leased crown land by contacting the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.
Owners are responsible for ensuring property ownership records are correct. If you have changed your name, or if the name on your tax notice is spelled incorrectly, please contact:
