If your name is incorrect on your title, we can search the instrument that created your title to determine where the error came from. If the name is correct in the document, but incorrect on your title, we will fix the mistake. There will be no requirement for you to complete any documents or pay any fees.
If the name is the same on your title as in the document that created the title, a Request/Transmission form with a certified copy of your birth certificate attached to it can be used to correct typographical error in your name on title or to add in a missed middle name. In box 1 of the request/ transmission form please insert your full true and correct name. In box 2 of the Request/Transmission form (where it says, “APPLICATION FOR”) please insert wording similar to the following:
Request to correct the spelling of my name. My true, full and correct name is “Jane Mary Doe”.
In box 7 of the Request/Transmission form a statement will have to be added connecting the old and new names together. Please insert wording similar to the following:
The Jane Merry Doe show on certificate of title no. 1234567/1 is one and the same person as the Jane Mary Doe set out as the applicant above, and in the attached birth certificate.
There is a fee for this request. Please see the land titles fees schedule for up-to-date fees.
