Issues with brand new homes

When you decide to have a new home built in Alberta, it's often for one of two reasons. First, you may want to have a home built right to your specs, and that's the only way to get it. Second, you want a home that does not have any of the inherent problems that older homes can have.

Making an offer on an existing business

If you're looking to get into business in Calgary but you don't want to start one of your own, one option that you have is to buy an existing business. The owner may tell you to come back with an offer, and you need to know all of the legal aspects of the offer -- the terms and conditions, the timeframe, the stipulations about what the owner must do and more.

The fine details of selling different types of land

When working on a land sale, one of the most important things to note is the type of land being sold. This is especially important for business transactions, as the owner of the land may want to use it in a specific way, and he or she needs to know if that use is permitted and if it is zoned properly. If this is misrepresented in any way, a dispute can often arise. Reading these fine details in advance is crucial.
