Conference on Latent Defects, Pre-purchase Inspections, and Expert Analyses


January 31, 2019 News

We are organizing a lunchtime conference for building inspectors and experts, as well as for lawyers, to be held on March 27th in Laval. Entitled “Latent Defects, Pre-purchase Inspections, and Expert Analyses,” this conference, which will be hosted by Mtre Bryan-Eric Lane, will deal with the concept of latent defects covered by the legal warranty of quality, the pre-purchase inspector’s obligations, and the role of an expert and his analysis in the context of a claim for latent defects.

The conference will deal primarily with the expert’s role, from the granting of his mandate to his testimony before the Court. Mtre Lane will provide numerous tips and tricks for the drafting of an expert’s report in the context of a recourse for latent defects, highlighting the important elements to be included as well as what should be avoided.

Lawyers who participate in the conference will be credited with two (2) hours of the Quebec Bar’s mandatory continuing education.
