Compliance Case Studies

Ensuring compliance with the Homeowner Protection Act and Regulations helps us protect B.C. homebuyers.

The following case studies are real-life stories about people who have (knowingly or unknowingly) contravened the Act in some way, as well as the compliance actions that we took against them. While some names and details have been changed to protect the privacy of those involved, the essential facts and compliance actions are real.

We encourage consumers, owner builders, real estate professionals, legal professionals, residential builders, renovators, developers and others who want to remain in compliance with the Act to use these studies as a learning tool.
