Event Description

It is essential for anyone working in or closely with the construction industry to have a basic understanding of builders liens as they are increasingly being used as a form of security to contractors, subcontractors, workers and suppliers who supply labour and/or materials in relation to the construction of an improvement on or to land.  However, builders’ liens do not necessarily guarantee recovery in full or at all. Understanding this complex area of law and applying recommended best practices will help you to maximize your potential recovery and reduce your liabilities.

 

Course Outline:

  •  An overview of the Builders Lien Act, including a review of the holdback provisions
  • The process for filing a claim of lien (who, what, where, when and how)
  • The process for cancelling a claim of lien
  • The process for enforcing a claim of lien
  • Best practices and tips for maximizing potential recovery

Presenter: Seema Lal is a principal of SHK Law Corporation with particular expertise in the areas of builders liens and construction law.  As a construction lawyer practicing in Vancouver for over 15 years, Seema’s clients include owners, developers, general contractors, subtrades, suppliers and design professionals.

 

Seema regularly lectures and provide seminars to industry groups both in-house and at various CLEs, including the Affinity Institute, the Pacific Business & Law Institute, the Canadian Construction Institute and the Canadian Credit Institute. She also is an adjunct lecturer in the Engineering Law and Contracts in Civil Engineering course for Civil Engineering students at UBC.
