Property Development - Lexpert Practice Area Definition

Property Development work is a broad practice area which, for purposes of this Lexpert Canadian Directory, is broken down as follows:

Commercial, retail and residential real estate financing and development work covers all aspects of real property transactions, including land acquisitions, site assembly, dispositions, financing structures and negotiations, joint ventures, partnerships, syndications, initial lease-ups, institutional investments including pension funds and REITs, condominium work (registration, bylaws, enforcement, annual meetings, unit purchases and sales, etc.), and issues relating to the enforcement of real estate security.

Land use planning/municipal law encompasses commercial, retail and residential planning and land use work, including official plan, zoning, subdivision, severance, variance, land use and development, and site plan matters; applications before municipal planning bodies, councils, provincial and federal boards; and related environmental compliance approvals. It may also include representation of regional and municipal governments in drafting of legislation; preparing, enforcing and contesting by-laws; advising on inter-governmental affairs and policy issues; and representing municipalities and their employees on negligence claims.

Please note that the Lexpert Canadian Directory has separate sections for PROPERTY LEASING, CONSTRUCTION LAW and ENVIRONMENTAL LAW.
