Posted on Updated on

From Information Services Corporation

Effective July 31, 2017, ISC Land Registry fees will increase for all Interest Registration Services, with the exception of Tax Liens, Postponements, and Public Utility Easements.

Please visit www.isc.ca/feechange for a full breakdown of fee changes, including a preview of the revised July 31, 2017 Land Registry fees.

ISC reviews registry fees on an annual basis. We are constantly evaluating the market and our business, and are committed to providing fair and sustainable fees to all our customers. The Company’s Master Service Agreement (MSA) with the Government of Saskatchewan allows for core registry fees to be adjusted annually based on a formula tied to inflation, as measured by the Saskatchewan Price Index (CPI). The 2017 ISC Annual Fee Review has resulted in the aforementioned adjustments in the Land Registry with all other registry fees remaining unchanged.

More information on this fee change can be found on our website at www.isc.ca/feechange.
