Learning level: All levels

Do you have clients who are acquiring rural property? There is a significant difference between a city lot and a piece of rural property. For example, do you know what "range" is, and why legal issues around dogs and fences are so important?

Issues that can have serious consequences should come up in a pre-purchase interview. But many buyers of rural residential real estate wait until just before the actual purchase date to consult their lawyers.

Join the experts to learn what should be done ahead of time, what should be covered at the pre-purchase interview, and how you can prevent problems for your client down the road.

After taking this course, you will know about:

  • Agricultural Land Reserve and its significance
  • Livestock Act and the Livestock Lien Act provisions
  • the law around:
    • fences
    • water licences
    • range tenure
    • Crown grants
    • grazing leases
    • easement
    • dogs
    • tax issues—GST as a potential trap for the unwary

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: (for rebroadcast only) 1.25 hours (this course does not contain professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management). Please note: The CPD hours of the rebroadcast will either meet or exceed the CPD hours of the original live webinar course.
