Builders Lien Act Reform in Progress

Friday, August 28, 2015

From the Construction Law Bulletin

The British Columbia Law Institute (the “BCLI”) is undertaking a major law reform project on the Builders Lien Act (the “Act”) and has begun a comprehensive review and overhaul of the Act with assistance from an expert volunteer Project Committee.

This project began in April 2014 and, according to the BCLI, the project will take a minimum of two years to complete. The BCLI hopes to provide the public with one or more consultation papers containing tentative recommendations for comment by the end of 2015. The BCLI intends to generate a final report in mid-2016 for the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General containing concrete, balanced recommendations for reform of the Act and possibly annotated draft legislation. Read the full article.
