Problems with Liens
Availability: In Stock
Derived from the Journal of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers 2011 edition, Problems with Liens was written to alert lawyers who are involved in construction lien matters to the more common errors that lawyers have been known to make, in their handling of construction lien claims including timing errors, joinder errors, registration errors, pleading errors and the like to refer, where possible, to the case law that may be of assistance; and to comment on the possible arguments and "repair" methods that may be available.
