Do you know if your son had a conditional sales agreement when he bought the truck?
A conditional sales agreement is a special kind of purchase where the seller owns the vehicle until it is paid off.
In that case, the seller can either seize or sue but not both.
That applies to both BC and Alberta.
In Alberta there is no seize or sue law otherwise so they can both seize and sue.
In BC the seize or sue law applies to all types of sales contracts.
Because the truck was bought in Alberta it can be seized and your son will still be sued unless there is a conditional sales contract.
Does that clarify the law?
They can seize and sue unless he has the special type of contract but he might. Tell him to read the title to the document he signed when he purchased the truck.
You are very welcome.
