Signing Outside of BC - Navigating Land Title Document Witnessing Requirements: A Guide for BC Conveyancers

February 27, 20243 min read

In the intricate process of land conveyancing, ensuring the validity and authenticity of legal documents is paramount. Among the critical aspects to consider are the witnessing requirements for land title documents signed outside of British Columbia (BC). Section 63 of the Evidence Act delineates these requirements, shedding light on the individuals authorized to administer oaths or affirmations outside the province. Let's delve into this provision and its implications for BC conveyancers.

Understanding Section 63 of the Evidence Act

Section 63 of the Evidence Act elucidates the validity of oaths, affidavits, affirmations, or statutory declarations executed outside BC but intended for use within the province. According to this provision, documents administered, sworn, affirmed, or made in another province or country before specified authorities hold the same force and effect as those executed within BC.

These designated authorities include:

  • Magistrates or officers of courts of justice

  • Mayors or chief magistrates of cities, boroughs, or town corporates

  • Officers of Her Majesty's diplomatic or consular services

  • Officers of the Canadian diplomatic and consular service

  • Canadian government trade commissioners

  • Notaries public

  • Commissioners authorized by BC laws to take affidavits

Implications for BC Conveyancers

For BC conveyancers, understanding and adhering to the witnessing requirements outlined in Section 63 is pivotal to ensuring the validity and enforceability of land title documents. When handling documents signed outside BC, conveyancers must verify that they have been executed before authorized individuals as per the provision.

Conveyancers should meticulously scrutinize documents to ascertain compliance with Section 63. This entails confirming that the individual administering the oath or affirmation falls within the prescribed categories and that the document bears the requisite certification or seal where applicable.

Best Practices for Compliance

To navigate the witnessing requirements effectively, BC conveyancers can adopt several best practices:

  1. Thorough Document Review: Conduct a comprehensive review of all land title documents to identify any executed outside BC.

  2. Verification of Signatories: Verify the authority of individuals administering oaths or affirmations by referring to the specified categories outlined in Section 63.

  3. Certification Confirmation: Ensure that documents are properly certified under the seal or hand of the authorized individual, where applicable.

  4. Documentation Preservation: Maintain meticulous records of all executed documents, including certifications and seals, for audit and verification purposes.

  5. Consultation and Collaboration: Collaborate with legal professionals and relevant authorities to address any ambiguities or complexities regarding witnessing requirements.

Conclusion

In the realm of land conveyancing, adherence to witnessing requirements is indispensable for upholding the integrity and legality of transactions. Section 63 of the Evidence Act serves as a crucial guideline for BC conveyancers, delineating the parameters for validating land title documents signed outside the province. By understanding and diligently applying these provisions, conveyancers can navigate the complexities of document execution with confidence and precision, safeguarding the interests of all parties involved in land transactions within British Columbia.
