Real Estate Development

Real estate development is an industry in constant evolution. The industry involves numerous challenges and problems which must be resolved in a prompt and practical way.   

We are proud to possess the skill necessary for evaluating the risks and problems that a real estate developer may encounter in the course of the construction and development of a real estate project. Furthermore, we are always looking for creative and practical solutions with the goal of resolving problems quickly and at minimum cost. We work closely with our clients through all the phases of a project’s development, from taking on a project through to its completion and follow-up, including the recommendation of the appropriate structure and legal vehicle, the acquisition of property and construction.

How we help you:

We prepare and negotiate partnership agreements, joint venture agreements or condominium and undivided co-ownership agreements, development and administration agreements, as well as construction contracts.

We prepare and negotiate all the documentation related to the acquisition of property, notably purchase offers, due diligence and title searches through to the bill of sale.

We ensure that the required acquisition as well as the construction and development financing is completed on time.

We verify the numerous restrictions which can affect the property, in particular, zoning and municipal regulations, the division and subdivision of the property, cadastral surveys, servitudes, encroachments, surface rights and rights concerning residential complexes, in addition to environmental problems and other municipal aspects.

We give you an understanding of the application of land titles, liens, construction liens and all other judicial procedures.

Did you know that ...

The Consumer Protection Act which regulates residential leases does not apply to commercial leases and there is no standard lease in this area. Consequently, it is essential that a commercial lease contains the provisions necessary to adequately protect your rights and interests.
