Title Insurance

Commercial title insurance mitigates risk and protects commercial real estate investments. Commercial title insurance:

  • Simplifies transactions in a timely fashion
  • Protects against defects in a property’s title

Title insurance is available for properties such as:

  • Lands zoned commercial or industrial
  • Residential buildings comprised of seven or more units
  • Commercial condominium/strata units
  • Commercial leasehold
  • Vacant land
  • Construction projects

Assigning and Subletting

A tenant and a landlord are in a relationship, regardless of whatever happens as time goes by. The landlord-tenant relationship is tenurial, meaning that a tenant should carefully consider the inherent rights and responsibilities when subletting or assigning the commercial property. If a sublease is created, the original landlord neither has privity of contract nor privity of estate with the subtenant if the tenant granted less than the full remainder of the term of the lease. If the tenant assigns their property interest to another party, they remain in a contractual relationship with the landlord, and the privity of the estate remains.
