Our lawyers work with a variety of clients on issues related to real estate litigation. Real estate law in British Columbia applies to an individual’s right to own, use and enjoy land. Both provincial and federal laws govern purchases and sales of residential real estate. In many instances, having a real estate lawyer involved from the beginning of your transaction can help you avoid litigation later on. If issues do arise at any time during your real estate transaction, Guardian Law lawyers will work with you untangle the situation.
Real estate disputes commonly arise in residential real estate sale and purchase transactions when one party cannot complete its obligations under a contract. For example, a buyer may not be able to obtain the necessary financing or otherwise remove conditions precedent, also know as subject conditions. After subject conditions are waived or removed, sometimes buyers still may decide not to complete a transaction. Sellers may also renege on contracts of purchase and sale. There are many reasons why sellers might do so, but some of the most common are to take advantage of rising property prices and obtain a higher price from another buyer. In a situation like this, a buyer may incur losses if they have already taken steps to sell their property.
Disputes can arise after transactions complete, too. This can happen when buyers discover after taking possession of property that certain conditions in the contract were not as represented or when the buyer is no longer able to use the property for the purpose it was intended for.
