If you need to find out who owns a building in BC the following guide can help:
In British Columbia, it isn’t always obvious who the owner of an apartment building actually is. Each building in BC is classified by a PID. The PID is a unique 9-digit number used to identify parcels of land within BC. (http://www.ltsa.ca/cms/how-to-access-records). Discovering who owns an apartment building is a two-step process, though step 1 can be skipped if the building’s Parcel Identification Number (PID) is known already.
Take the building’s civic (street) address to the BC Assessment Authority’s nearest office. Their self-serve service can conduct a search the BC Assessment database using the civic address to recover the property’s PID. The employees there can also recover the information for a fee.
Take the PID to the BC Land Title Office in New Westminster, Kamloops or Victoria or contact them by mail and have them conduct a title search on the property. The title search will give you the name registered as the property’s owner. This service costs a fee.
