The Law Society of Alberta, together with the Government of Alberta is allowing for the registration of Land Titles documents that have been witnessed, sworn or affirmed by Alberta lawyers using two-way visual teleconferencing.
This is a temporary measure invoked by the Government that can end at any time and will expire, in any event, by August 14, 2010.
Original signatures are still required on all documents to register but they can be signed via video conference and then the originals sent to the law firm, to meet their requirements under this interim legislation, and to register at Land Titles.
Your safety and concern remains a priority to us. We are ready and able to do remote real estate signings with you and have implemented this process for court documents previously.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 403-269-9400.
We wish all our clients, colleagues, business partners and referral partners, health, grace and peace during this time.
