Latent Defects

Whether you are the buyer or the seller of real estate, we can accompany you in regard to warranties of either title or quality in relation to your real estate transaction. We will verify your title and charges preceding the sale of the real estate in addition to taking steps to avoid proceedings concerning latent defects. We also deal with litigation resulting from latent defects or construction defects in homes or commercial buildings. Finally, we can advise you in all other proceedings in relation to non-conformity of your property, title defects, undeclared servitudes and zoning problems.

Expertise

Mr. St-Martin practices mainly in the field of real estate law, particularly in municipal taxation, in property assessment in cases of tenant-landlord relations, commercial leases and joint ownership. He also acts in commercial and civil litigation matters.

Mr. St-Martin represents and advises major property owners as well as various municipalities surrounding Montreal on property assessment. He is called upon to represent many customers in civil and commercial litigation, notably in product liability, damages, construction and succession. This brought him to draft opinions and participate at negotiation meetings, but mostly to submit written and verbal representations before such authorities as the Tribunal administratif du Québec, the Cour du Québec, the Cour Supérieure du Québec, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
