Commercial and Residential Real Estate Litigation

We can further help you find solutions that are appropriate and cost-effective for redressing bad real estate transactions, including seeking remedies on failed purchase and sale agreements.


Failed Agreement & Purchase of Sale: Real estate deals fall apart for many reasons, but when buyers and sellers actually breach their sales or purchase agreements, harmed parties may pursue legal remedies.

The courts regularly redress failed purchase and sale agreements in Ontario by allowing non-defaulting parties to:

  1.   To accept the repudiation and sue for damages, without the further need to perform any remaining obligations of the agreement of purchase and sale; or
  2.   Insist on strict performance and completion of the agreement of purchase and sale and wait until the closing date to assess the outcome
