New Postal Codes in Whistler & What This Means For Whistler Property Owners
How do the Whistler postal code changes impact you as a Whistler home owner?
First, you will need to update your mailing address for all of your service providers. Second, all home owners with Whistler mailing addresses registered on the title of any of their properties will need to contact the Land Titles Office to update the postal code.
Why is it important to change your OLD Whistler Address to your NEW Whistler Address at the Land Titles Office?
- The BC Assessment Authority uses the addresses shown on Title as the basis for mailing out the Annual BC Assessment Notices.
- The RMOW uses the addresses shown on Title as the basis for mailing out your Annual Property Tax Notice.
What happens if I forget to update my address?
Quite simply, once the grace period for mail forwarding to your old postal code is over, you will not receive either of these notices. If you do not pay your annual property taxes as a result of not receiving the assessment, you are at risk of having your property forfeited to the Crown. This doesn’t happen immediately, but why let yourself get into this stressful situation?
Make sure you contact the Land Titles Office to update your Whistler mailing address on any property you own in BC.
Below is a Link to the Land Title Office Website that sets out the procedure to be followed, complete with the required Form 15.
