VANCOUVER – 0981478 B.C. Ltd., with Mark Chandler as its sole director, has been served with a cease marketing order as developer of the 92-unit Murrayville House development in Langley. The order was made on an urgent basis by Superintendent of Real Estate Micheal Noseworthy Friday, September 8, determining that the developer was non-compliant with the Real Estate Development Marketing Act (REDMA), and that it was in the public interest to make the order urgently without a hearing. Conditions in the order include:

  • filing a new disclosure statement for all units that includes all material facts without any misrepresentation; and
  • placing all deposit funds in a trust account held by a trustee.

The order remains in force until all conditions are met. The developer may require a hearing by the Superintendent or appeal the order to the Financial Services Tribunal. A copy of the full order is available from the Real Estate Development Marketing Enforcement Action website.
