Condominium and Co-ownership Lawyers

Support, legal advice, and assistance to condo syndicates

Our law firm is at your disposal to handle all types of requests related to condominium law in Greater Montreal, the South Shore, the North Shore, Laval, and the Laurentides. We will draft and interpret contractual documents such as declarations of co-ownership (act constituting the co-ownership, by-laws of the immovable and the description of the fractions), and we will defend your rights and interests in the context of litigation.

Documents relating to real estate law and condominium law 

We analyze various technical and legal documents for you related to the construction and review of titles of houses, duplexes, triplexes, multiplexes, or apartment buildings, to leases (commercial or residential), or condominiums. These documents may include your declaration of co-ownership, plans and specifications, cadastral plans, expert reports, or your contingency fund study and your maintenance logbook.

We are at the disposal of your syndicate to answer your questions and support you. We prioritize solutions tailored to your needs on a fair, proportional, and quality basis.


Unpaid common charges (condo fees)

A syndicate must ensure that everyone pays their common expenses. We intervene as a mediator, attorney, or arbitrator in order to help you unblock and cut through deadlocks.

Your obligations during renovations, works and repairs to the building should be examined. Our lawyers intervene to analyze them and advise you.

In the event of faulty design, construction defects or ground defects are discovered, our lawyers will assist you in protecting and asserting your rights.
