The following is a list of the services we routinely deliver in real estate law. This list is not comprehensive. If there is a real estate service that is not identified here, please feel free to give us a call and inquire further.

  • Purchases and Sales
    Signing an Agreement of Purchase and Sale with your real estate agent is usually followed by a lawyer’s review of the Agreement. Some of the most crucial information in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale is found in the Schedule(s) to the Agreement, which will often contain conditions that are binding and enforceable. The earlier you bring your signed agreement to a lawyer, the more likely it is that you will be able to meet the deadlines in the agreement and avoid breaching any conditions or unknowingly overlook a situation where the opposite party has breached a condition in your favour.

  • Purchase of a New Build Property
    If you have signed an Agreement of Purchase and Sale from a builder, then you probably have a condition for lawyer’s review that expires within approximately 10 days of signing. We can review your Agreement of Purchase and Sale and in some cases we can request a cap on development charges and other expenses that have not yet been determined.

  • Transfers of Title
    Property can change hands outside of an Agreement of Purchase and Sale. Sometimes parents will gift a property to their children or a business owner may want to move a property from personal ownership into an incorporated company. A transfer of title can trigger income tax consequences such as capital gains taxes. If you are looking to transfer a property, contact one of our experienced real estate lawyers today: 416-862-0000.

  • Title Insurance
    We recommend that all of our clients obtain title insurance at the time of purchase of any property in Canada since the cost of having a lawyer perform the appropriate investigations and provide a letter of opinion can cost the same or more than title insurance. Title insurance provides financial coverage for any title issues. Our lawyers can help you obtain the title insurance policy that is right for your property.
