Alberta Land Title Officers are feeling the burn of a hot economy.
A rise in property sales means a backlog in paperwork for transferring deeds to new homeowners.
Eoin Kenny with the government says they're running about 16 days behind.
"We have 110 examiners working flat out. They're working alot of over time and Saturdays and have limited the amount of holidays taken during the peak summer buying season. They're working on about 5000 documents a day"
Kenny says they've hired nine new employees to speed things up, but it will be at least six months before they're fully trained.
