    Whether you’re a first time buyer or you’re onto your second or even third home, when you opt to buy or sell a property you have a lot to deal with.  When do you need to talk to a real estate lawyer? What do you need to complete the process? What are closing costs? Have all the conditions been met?

    The whole process can seem very daunting, and it’s easy to make mistakes especially if you’re unfamiliar with the process. By carefully choosing your real estate lawyer you can simplify the buying or selling process and look forward to a smoother process overall. You can visit our FAQ page to learn more about what a real estate lawyer does.

    You likely have plenty of real estate lawyers in your area that you can choose from and finding the right fit ultimately comes down to the right questions.

    Create a shortlist of potential Edmonton real estate lawyers and then research the following areas, asking as many questions as you need to feel comfortable with your choice.

    • How long has the real estate lawyer been practicing in this area of law?
    • When did they graduate, and from where?
    • Are they members in good standing with their governing bodies?
    • Find out how long they have been working in your specific province. A real estate lawyer with more area-specific knowledge is better than someone who has just moved into the area
    • Do they have good reviews from previous clients?
    • Do they bill you hourly or at a flat rate for their services? What other costs are involved?

     

    After you’ve researched all of this and asked the questions, how do you feel about each candidate? You need to go with someone you can trust. Look carefully at your findings and opt for the person who has the right expertise and customer service skills to make your experience a good one.

    Growing Pains: Condominium Legislation Smoking Out Cannabis Law in Edmonton

    The announcement of reformed cannabis legalization has put the entire country in a tizzy, but there are further-reaching implications of this legislation than the surface appeal of some to be able to legally smoke up anywhere they go. How, if even, does this legislation affect those who own, or plan to own, condominiums in the Edmonton community?

    We must first consider that there are two major legs to this issue – the growing aspect and the smoking aspect. There doesn’t seem to be much to discuss regarding the growing of the plants, which we will legally be able to do, up to a maximum of four. No different than typical houseplants, correct? Not so much. Growing marijuana plants in your condo might seem harmless, but it raises concerns as to whether or not the distinctive smell infringes upon the Alberta Human Rights Act in the disturbance that it causes to the neighboring condo units. While most current bylaws don’t explicitly prohibit the growing of cannabis, provisions within insurance policies do. It is common language in condominium insurance policies that coverage is null and void if you are found to have a grow op, voicing the verbiage that current bylaws haven’t yet stated.

    The next leg concerns the actual smoking of the marijuana itself. Many condominium bylaws already prohibit the smoking of tobacco products inside their units and on common property. For the most part, there is no reason to believe that marijuana would have its own set of rules by which we must abide. Condominiums that wish to allow marijuana smoking but not tobacco smoking, or vice versa, would have to have their bylaws amended to allow this, which doesn’t seem to be in the works.

    To further unravel this ball of yarn, we must consider those who smoke marijuana for medical purposes. While some might stand up and say that it is their human right to smoke marijuana and that bylaws should be amended to enable such because they have a medical reason for needing to do so, there are many options that they may exercise without causing discomfort to their neighbors. There is no compelling reason for a person requiring marijuana for medical purposes not to smoke off premises or to consume their medication in edible form or through a vaping device.

    The long and short of this new legislation, once analyzed and compared with current condominium legislation, abolishes the notion that Edmonton is headed for a free-for-all cannabis craze. There is no reason for prospective condo owners to turn away from the idea of buying as bylaws currently in place will deter any uncomfortable living situations. So, buy away! But be sure to contact Peter B. Mason and his 5 ⭐ legal team to make sure that you are getting what you are paying for.
