Hi everyone,

My wife and I recently bought our first home in BC, Canada with a development company. We build a custom home and interior from a plan with the builder.

Now we are seeing pictures of our home (exact inside and outside) used to promote and sell other homes in the development with a multiple of different price points. My question would be if this would any way interfere with re-sale value when we are ready to sell in a few years...?

Thanks all!!

I'd re-acquaint myself with the Terms and Conditions of the original Contract you had with the Builder and see if you didn't already agree to allow him to use representations of what he built for you in his future advertisements.

If there's nothing worded there, granting such Authorization, then I'd have my Attorney review the Documents and evaluate whether my rights had been violated under your Provincial Laws.

You may be entitled to some form of compensation. Meanwhile, I doubt that the value of your house will have suffered; indeed, consider it a compliment . . . . as long as it doesn't become an annoyance.

You own the house, the builder owns the design, the look of the house and the rights to advertise the look of the house. The design and look of the house are copyrighted in the builders name and it is theirs to use.

The value will only be affected by the the overall market conditions.

I don't think that it will get affected then
