Real Estate Development Law

British Columbia can be both an exciting and a challenging place to develop real estate.  Our group of West Vancouver real estate lawyers understand.  We can partner with you to navigate through the legal complexities of your real estate development project from land assembly, development or building permit application, subdivision, rezoning to obtaining an occupancy permit and selling your property.  Although this aspect of our practice involves a broad scope of work, the goal is always the same - to serve your legal needs so YOU succeed.

Since the 1970s, our lawyers have acted on hundreds of developments - both large and small; on fee simple, leasehold or reserve lands; with standard lot subdivisions, strata titling and air space parcels; and in all types of industries such as pre-sale condos, single-family residential subdivisions, shopping centres, business parks, office or mixed-use buildings, light and heavy industrial parks, warehouses, hotels, resorts, golf courses, health care and public transportation and infrastructure.

When we think of real estate developments, we often think of the land owner or developer.  But our lawyers have also provided legal advice and opinions to all levels of government throughout B.C. on land development issues.  We have gained a great reputation and high level of trust with many senior governmental officials.  This experience can be invaluable to both our developer and our government clients.
