A key and often overlooked component of a comprehensive Surface Land Management Program is the registration of interest on title via the BC Land Titles office. Registering and maintaining your surface land interest such as a Statutory Right of Way or Surface Lease protects your interest in that land in the event of a change in ownership or disagreement with the surface landowner. In BC, the Oil and Gas Commission also issues tenure documents for interests on Crown land. These documents must also be registered with Land Titles.
