Real Estate Law
At some point in your life, you will be fortunate enough to be buying your first home. As the years pass, you may sell that home to upgrade to another. Perhaps you will keep that home and rent it. You may acquire a cottage or other recreational property. A business venture may mandate the acquisition or lease of a commercial property. Along the way, you will need the advice and assistance of a lawyer.
In Ontario, the transfer of ownership of real property is now completed electronically through software issued to licensed and approved users. Real Estate Lawyers are one group licensed to use this software, and the only group authorized to register Deeds. As such, you need a lawyer to convey real estate in Ontario; but there are many other reasons why you would want one.
We can help you understand the nature and effect of the terms of your Agreement of Purchase and Sale, preferably prior to it being signed. We can guide you though the process so that there are no unexpected surprises. Ultimately, we are there to ensure that title is properly transferred, closing funds are properly handled, and in general that your interests are protected.
