Alberta Land Titles Office Ownership and Mailing Address Change Delays
The City of Calgary has requested we inform lawyers of a potential issue real estate clients may face with their property tax bills. Lawyers assisting clients with Land Titles registrations should make sure their clients are aware of this issue.
The Alberta Land Titles Office is experiencing delays in registering Transfers of Land and changes to mailing addresses. Property tax bills are mailed in late May and delayed registration will result in new property owners not receiving their bill. Property owners who have not received their property tax bill by the first week of June must call 311 to obtain an up-to-date statement of account.
The City is not responsible for delays. To avoid late payment penalties, property owners need to ensure their property tax is paid before June 30.
