Webinar on the recourses for latent defects and successions


April 26, 2019 News

Mtre Bryan-Eric Lane, alongside Mtre Andréanne Ouellet, notary at Blanchard Lupien notaires LLP, will host a webinar on May 3rd on the recourses for latent defects and successions.

Mtre Lane and Mtre Ouellet will discuss the conditions for the application of the legal warranty of quality and particularly, the specific rules applicable to recourses for latent defects involving successions.

Specifically, upon whom must the claim be served when the seller is deceased? What is the time limit for instituting a recourse for latent defects against a succession? Against whom must the buyer take his recourse when a succession is involved: the liquidator, the heirs, or both? Mtre Lane and Mtre Ouellet will also discuss the impact and interpretation of section 816 C.C.Q., the liability of an heir sued several years after the closure of the deceased seller/testator’s succession, as well as the concept of interrupting prescription (s. 1520 and 2900 C.C.Q.).

This 90-minute webinar is recognized by the Barreau du Québec for its mandatory continuing education hours and will be available to be replayed at any time as of May 5th, 2019.
