Real estate is also a business involving many agents. Developers, stewards, architects, consultants, brokers, engineers and other construction specialists: real estate professionals are often agents bound to their clients by mandate agreements.

Sometimes, without even being aware of it, you will be bound by a mandate agreement, since in many cases, a contractual relationship that does not have the characteristics of another agreement (particularly employment contracts or service contracts) will be subject to mandate rules.

Here are some examples of cases in which we have advised and represented clients:

  • Assisting a broker to get his commission paid.
  • Advising and defending a firm of architects in relation to alleged quote overruns.
  • Advising the director of a condominium faced with his mandator’s claims of civil liability.
  • Drafting brokerage and business contribution contracts.
  • Assisting a consortium of engineers to obtain the payment of its fees and to contest the shortcomings for which it is blamed.
