Real Estate Litigation and Latent Defect Claims

Purchasing a property is one of the most important investment decisions that Canadians make in their lifetimes. On a corporate level, a property acquisition may represent a significant corporate investment and vital capital. The discovery of a hidden defect in connection with a real estate purchase can have a devastating effect on the value and usability of the property. For the seller, allegations relating to the existence of a latent defect, whether real or perceived, can be equally devastating. Success in real estate litigation depends upon obtaining the right advice and experienced representation.
