Future of Independent Living For Older Adults: Real Estate and Elder Law Considerations
Author(s): Ontario Bar Association
Publication Date: March 2019
Format: shipped (hardcopy), download (PDF)

Canada's ageing population requires sustainable and affordable residences. What seemed as unconventional property choices before - bi-generational housing, shared co-op housing, and condominium communities - now appear as more sensible alternatives for this population. Implementing them, however, raises different regulatory, planning, and legal considerations that can get messy. Reverse mortgages, private co-housing arrangements, condominium liabilities, different title holdings, and new community options are just some of the issues counsel may need to advise on when acting on a file.

You will gain the insight you need to spot and manage the opportunities and pitfalls of representing older clients, and to help them navigate the future of independent living.
