An Italian restaurant serves up a tale of betrayal and vengeance, featuring financial ruin, a wildfire, and untimely death. Even more interesting, a study of when exactly a landlord acquires liability for a builders’ lien.
Can a lien be cancelled if it claims an unreasonable amount owed? Can s. 24 of the Builders Lien Act be used as a backdoor method of cancelling a lien? Are remedies under the Land Title Act available in a builders' lien action? Is there a price to be paid for asking these questions? The answers lie within.
