Details and specs

The Law of Vendor and Purchaser is the classic work on the law relating to the sale of real estate in Canada. The 3rd edition, in 20 chapters, surveys the statutes and case law in the common law provinces and territories. The first eight chapters explore the formation of the contract for sale or the agreement of purchase and sale. Chapters 9 to 14 canvass the legal issues that arise from the investigation of title to repudiation or abandonment, and from construction of the contract to the position of the parties pending completion. Chapters 15 to 18 examine the selection and pursuit of remedies for vendors and purchasers upon default. Chapters 19 and 20 address the standard of care to be met by solicitors acting for parties to a real estate transaction, and the rights and duties of real estate agents and brokers.
