Podcast Episode 126: “Trapped in a Permit Maze.”
This Tale from the Trenches is the second in our ongoing mini-series on permits for real estate. You know, those sometimes-nasty bits of paper that towns, cities, counties, and other municipalities require before you can do certain types of work on a property. From my perspective as a real estate lawyer, I think it’s fair to say that the permit landscape has changed over the last few years in Alberta (and elsewhere across Canada), so it’s good to survey recent developments. In this episode, a client of mine faces off against municipal bureaucracy to get a legal secondary suite approved, getting snagged up by rules and regulations for parking.
