I have been here for six years never met the owner, never have gotten a single receipt . I have been sending her 600 a month .Now she wants me to have the place. I am not family so she cannot gift it to me in BC. Can I get it put in my name with a power of attorney
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

That is good news for you I assume.

She has to sign a transfer of title document. She will need to see a lawyer for this and then you will have to have your own lawyer do a title search and then register the transfer on title.

The title search is vital of course and before you pay any fees including legal fees you should be sure the title is clear.

She can transfer title to you when she wants. It's her right. There is no obligation for you to pay.

There will be land transfer tax fees.

Does that help 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.
