Me Alain Mongeau
I have been practicing real estate law since I was an articling student in 1980 and have been overseeing and managing my lawfirm since 1989.
For many years, I have advised various associations and real estate boards, notably in order to create a system of conciliation and arbitration between brokers regulating compensation-sharing in an organized and civilized manner. I also advised said associations and boards in the initial creation of the laws and regulations governing the real estate brokerage profession.
I have defended real estate brokers in front of the OACIQ’s Disciplinary Committee since its establishment in 1995.
My involvement with real estate brokers on thousands of files has inevitably allowed me to interact daily with their clients (buyers and sellers) and to represent them in their issues related to hidden defects, false representations, breach of promise to purchase, financing, commercial or residential leases, bankruptcy, conflicts between partners or co-owners.
Because of my extensive knowledge and experience in the industry, I am often asked to give lectures and conferences to real estate brokers. I am also able to provide my team with substantial coaching and supervision, as well as follow the evolution of laws and jurisprudence in real estate law. This forces me to remain abreast of the scientific evolution of problems that can affect immovables and their use.
