Risks of Growing Cannabis at Home


Blog by June Conway | May 21st, 2019


The legalization of cannabis opens up new risks for homeowners.  Our professional real estate association, British Columbia Real Estate Association has created a series of videos regarding the risk of growing cannabis at home.

The first video is on the risks of growing cannabis when it comes to financing, refinancing and protecting the value of your home.

The second video is on cannabis as it relates to strata properties, the risks of growing cannabis inside a strata unit and how to identify whether the strata bylaws align with your purchasing needs.

With Canada surpassing the six-month milestone since the legalization of cannabis in 2018, there is still uncertainty around whether a seller should disclose if they have been growing cannabis within the legal limit. The third video is on issues related to disclosure, stigmas related to growing cannabis.
