Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am not quite sure of the facts just yet.
Please let me know your province and the basic facts.
Then please let me know your specific question.
You cannot put a lien on the property unless you get a court order.
If this property is being built using matrimonial property and you start a lawsuit you could obtain and register a certificate of pending litigation on the title but that doesn't freeze the title. It is just a caution that tells others there is a potential lawsuit about the property.
But to out a lien on it to secure an interest you would need a court order.
Does that clarify the law?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
