It is essential to attach a period of acceptance and notification to the offer to purchase. This period is equivalent to the period of time during which this offer to purchase will remain valid. The seller can then accept or refuse it. Failing to include this period in the offer to purchase, the Civil Code of Quebec provides that it will lapse on the expiry of a reasonable time. In addition, the offer to purchase may include suspensive conditions for which it will be necessary to determine a deadline for completion. This type of condition makes it possible to suspend the validity of the offer to purchase until the realization of a future and uncertain event that it foresees, for example the obtaining of mortgage financing. These suspensive conditions must provide for sufficient time, so that the promisor buyer has an adequate reaction time before they expire.

<![CDATA[Short practical guide to personnel management]]> December 23, 2021- As an employer, a syndicate of co-ownership has a right of management with respect to its employees, that is to say the right to direct them. This right of management must, however, be exercised in compliance with employment rules.

It starts in the hiring process

Leading staff is much more than just assigning tasks to the employee. A good employer/employee relationship is created from the hiring process. Experience and job references are important points to consider, as well as the motivation, skills and background of the candidate, in order to select well. This step should not be overlooked.

<![CDATA[Failure by a co-owner to insure: the consequences.]]>

I just suffered a major disaster caused by the breakage of the water supply pipe in my neighbour's shower. The water damage significantly affected my apartment and movable property. I had to be relocated for more than a month to the hotel. To make matters worse, I was not insured for this damage. However, I do not know if the defective pipe is in the common portion of the building or in the private portion of my neighbour. Question: Am I entitled to claim from my neighbour or the syndicate the sums I have had to pay so far?
