Real Estate Legal Fees

Our fees for real estate are fixed at a flat rate. This means that unlike some law firms we do not charge to review your Agreement of Purchase and Sale nor do we surprise you by charging extra at an hourly rate in the event there is any issue with your transaction. For more information about our real estate services, please contact us by phone or email.

When a buying a home we will:

  • Discuss how you wish to take title;

  • Communicate with you, your financial institution and the vendor’s lawyer with respect to closing;

  • Conduct title searches to ensure there are no liens or encumbrances on title or other issues that may be problematic;

  • Obtain title insurance for your new home;

  • Review all utility and tax statements and other adjustments to ensure you are paying the proper amount;

  • Prepare documents for closing;

  • Meet with you to discuss closing and to sign all closing documentation;

  • Conduct closing, and

  • Provide you with a detailed report of the transaction.

When selling a home we will:

  • Communicate with you, your financial institution and the purchaser’s lawyer with respect to closing;

  • Review all utility and tax statements and other adjustments to ensure you are paying the proper amount, prorated to the date of closing;

  • Prepare documents for closing;

  • Conduct closing;

  • Discharge and payout any outstanding mortgages or lines of credit, and

  • Provide you with a detailed report of the transaction.

Survivorship Application

If two individuals hold title to a property as “joint tenants” and one of the owners dies, it may be necessary to complete a Survivorship Application to deal with the various complications that can arise for the surviving joint tenant. We can assist with this application and assist with any questions arising out of the administration of an estate.

Transfers of Title

We have worked with many clients assisting with the smooth and efficient transfer of Title of a family home, whether for spouses who have separated and agreed that one spouse will take ownership as part of their settlement agreement, or when a home is gifted from one family member to another.
