This fall, BCREA will be releasing 11 new standard forms, multiple clauses and revisions to a significant number of forms.

Among the new forms will be those related to First Nations Reserve Lands Leasehold Properties, Cancellation of Buyer Agency Exclusive Contracts, Property Disclosure Statement - Strata Properties - Bare Land Strata and more. New clauses are being released to support REALTORS® in transacting leasehold interest properties, dealing with negative assignments amounts and for strata properties dealing with proposed levies.

The form revisions are based on:

  • Alignment with regulatory and practice requirements, including the name change of the Regulator and references to the Real Estate Services Rules and renumbering.
  • Various requests from members of the profession and associated professions, such as changes to the Contract of Purchase and Sale Manufactured homes, Property Disclosure Statement with regards to the Water Sustainability Act.
  • Providing clarity and uniformity with some of the standard contract terms across various forms.
  • Form redesign of the Notice of Condition Waiver/Declaration of Fulfillment, Contract of Purchase and Sale and Property Disclosure Statement forms.
