Further clarification of the British Columbia Tariff of Costs regulation was provided by a recent decision of the B.C. Expropriation Compensation Board. In Yue v. Surrey (City),  EXLAW 327, the Board dealt with an important question involving whether the full range of tariff costs can be claimed separately by each owner or whether they must be shared between all owners affected by a single expropriation.
In this case, decided on August 31, 2000, the claim involved a partial fee simple taking from a single parcel of land owned jointly by husband and wife.
The Board found that the two owners had advanced the same compensation claim and concluded from this that the available tariff costs must be shared between them and could not be claimed separately.
