Emerging Issue – Real Estate Law

The Ontario Government is proposing a new bill that would try to curtail the rise in housing prices. The More Homes Built Faster Act is geared towards building 1.5 million homes within the next ten years – this initiative is intended to increase supply and reduce fees for prospective home buyers. The proposed act is also reducing zoning regulation which could allow property owners to rebuild properties into duplexes, triplexes, and remove unnecessary delays in development approvals. For more information about the proposed act, please feel free to review the Lawyer’s Daily article listed below.
