We are pleased to announce that Ben Hanuka successfully represented a real estate brokerage in the Court of Appeal for Ontario last week. In siding with the real estate brokerage, the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal of former clients of the real estate brokerage and who were seeking to overturn a trial judgment against them.

The trial judgment awarded the real estate brokerage damages in the amount of $250,000, as commissions on a buyer’s representation agreement on the purchase of industrial land in Mississauga, in addition to HST, interest and legal fees. The former clients of the real estate brokerage alleged that the initial in the buyer’s representation agreement was forged. The trial judge held that the initial was not forged and that the real estate brokerage was entitled to its commissions. The Court of Appeal upheld the trial judgment.
