Real Estate Law

Introduction

We are here to help make your real estate transactions smooth and seamless.

Our lawyers and staff have decades of experience to work through all of the details in buying or selling a home or revenue property or refinancing.

Buying a property

We will prepare all the documents for you to sign and your lawyer will meet with you to explain and sign the documents, including mortgages, commitment documents and cost of borrowing disclosures. We will ensure correct registration of title and any necessary mortgage documentation and do everything it takes to make sure you are able to get the keys to your new property on time.

Selling a property

We will prepare all of the documents necessary to complete your sale. You will meet with your lawyer to sign the documents and send these documents to the buyer’s lawyer. We will receive the purchase money,  pay any realtor commissions and mortgages on your behalf and deliver your sales proceeds to you as soon as possible after closing.

Refinancing

We will help you with all areas of your refinance, including paying off your old mortgage and any debt reduction required by your new lender.
