Legislative change in the area of builders’ liens is coming soon. Effective August 29, 2022 the current Builders’ Lien Act will become the Prompt Payment and Construction Lien Act. If you practice in real estate or civil litigation, we are happy to offer training for you this fall. Builders’ Liens is a full-day program planned for October 5, 2022 in both Edmonton and via livestream. Our presenters for this program include W. Donald Goodfellow QC and Adrianna Worman, both from Goodfellow & Schuettlaw.
Consider how these changes will impact your practice, and discuss topics such as the creation of a lien, limitations of a lien, the lien fund, and more.
