Most plans filed with the LTSA display a three-letter plan prefix code (such as BCP or VAS) in the legal description.

If your plan number already has a three-letter prefix, simply enter the plan number with its prefix. For example, you could enter BCP1234, LMS123, or EPP123.

If your plan number does not have a three-letter prefix, you will have to add one. Choose the appropriate prefix from the table below, add it to your plan number (without spaces), and enter it. All electronic plans in all land title districts begin with the prefix EPP for land title plans and EPS for strata plans. Crown grants begin with the prefix EPC.
