  • the Shopping Centre Leases (Chapter 2) have been revised to include reference to e-commerce sales as they relate to gross revenues, and additional notes to a tenant about negotiating notice periods when relocation is contemplated
  • the Office Lease (Chapter 3) has been augmented with further notes regarding negotiating points for the tenant regarding issues like notice to enter the premises for inspection expanded and “green lease” provisions, as well as a discussion of the significance of Delane Industry Co. Ltd. v. PCI Properties Corp., 2014 BCCA 285, regarding a landlord’s election to distrain
  • the Assignment of Lease (Chapter 8) includes a short discussion note regarding privity of contract between the various parties
  • the Registration of Lease (Chapter 9) has been updated to reflect mandatory electronic filing procedures
  • the Tenant Option Rights (Chapter 10) provisions have been revised to reflect current closing and electronic registration practices
  • the Environmental Provisions (Chapter 12) content has been updated to reflect the ever expanding nature of environmental damages and liabilities
  • the Registration of Leases (Chapter 20) content has been revised to reflect mandatory electronic registration practices

Several chapters reflect the change of reverting to the dual tax system, and the practice shifts to pre-authorized payment plans rather than post-dated cheques for payment and notice delivery by electronic means.
