Presented by Anna Sekunova, Clark Wilson LLP
Builders liens can be a very effective tool for securing unpaid amounts by various participants in the construction industry. Despite their effectiveness, builders liens are very technical and require meticulous compliance with the applicable legislation - the Builders Lien Act. In this session, Anna Sekunova will discuss how to properly deal with builders lien issues, including:
- whether consultants have lien rights;
- how to properly file a lien;
- how to advance or defend a lien claim;
- how liens can be removed; and
- how to deal with claims against holdback funds.
This is your chance for "free" legal advice!
