Note explicative (en anglais seulement)

Clause 1 provides for the retention, commencing 60 days after a contract is deemed to be substantially performed under the Builders’ Lien Act, of a finishing holdback of 10% of the work remaining to be done on the contract, rather than the existing holdback of 2.5% of the contract price.

Clause 2 provides for the certification that a subcontract is complete and provides that, where a subcontract is so certified, the owner of the property to which the subcontract relates may pay out the holdback in respect of the subcontract required under the Act if all liens in respect of the subcontract are expired or have been discharged or satisfied.

Clause 3 authorizes the Governor in Council to make regulations respecting notice to be given of the substantial performance of any contract or the completion of any subcontract under which a lien may arise.

Clause 4 provides that this Act comes into force on proclamation.
