The Saskatchewan Builders’ Lien Manual is an essential tool for any practitioner dealing with the legal ramifications of The Builders’ Lien Act. Since the first printing of this popular manual 20 years ago, many important amendments to the Act and relevant new case law have changed the way practitioners handle builders’ liens.

The revised second edition reflects those important changes both in updated information and design. The modern look and feel of this manual helps to clarify the content for seasoned practitioners and anyone exploring the material for the first time.

  • Ebook contains hyperlinks to full text judgments and statutes on CanLII for easy reference.
  • Amendments to the The Builders’ Lien Act and other pertinent statutes, as well as relevant case law, have been updated and are current to July 2014.
  • The Appendix includes The Builders’ Lien Act and Regulations in their entirety, including forms. As well, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Economy has generously provided their document: “Builders’ Liens and Provincial Crown Minerals”, MIN001 Guideline: Builders’ Liens, which provides important information on understanding builders’ liens and samples of completed forms.
