Do you have what you need to advise on the complex legal issues facing elderly clients?

Elderly clients and their families may find themselves in unique living situations which give rise to highly technical legal issues. These can include the following: multiple generations living together; “granny flats” for aging relatives; life lease housing; and shared property arrangements.

You must have a current and in-depth understanding of various real estate issues that can affect your elderly clients in order to competently advise them of the risks and potential pitfalls. Topics include:

  • Problems and pitfalls in shared property arrangements
  • Granny flats and housing – the basics of complying with bylaws, zoning and building code regulations
  • Life leases – what is your client buying? Issues to consider from the perspective of the developer and purchaser when transferring an interest
  • How to advise an attorney or guardian in real estate transactions
  • Is ILA enough?

This webinar is part of the Best Practices and Practical Realities: The Osgoode Elder Law Webinar Series.
