As new power and utilities projects are developed, whether in renewables or more traditional fossil fuel sectors, real estate deals and agreements will need to be made. With an increasing focus on the environment and land usage rights, especially with Indigenous territory, getting expert real estate advice is critical before a new build begins.
Finding and securing land takes careful planning. Working with someone who knows the nuanced rules and regulations in this sector, and understands how to get real estate deals done, is integral to a successful project.
Osler’s team has extensive experience dealing with all types of real estate issues, including options to purchase, compliance with the Foreign Ownership of Land Regulations of Alberta, respecting acquisition of lands by foreign corporations, title rights of way, pipeline relocations, and commercial and residential subdivisions. We can also help arrange financing for purchases, sell underperforming assets, and acquire land and infrastructure from other operations.
Given the complexity of real estate transactions in this industry, it’s essential to work with a team that can help you develop the right strategies for your business.
