Residential Real Estate - Sales and Purchases:
Real estate transactions often represent the most significant deal that an individual will participate in throughout his or her lifetime. We assists our clients from start to finish, from reviewing agreements of purchase and sale, to completing title searches and working with financial institutions to ensure a smooth closing. Transactions involving properties such as cottages, farms, vacation homes and condominiums each have unique considerations that we explain to our clients and oversee throughout the transaction. We help our clients navigate the complexities of real estate transactions and help eliminate issues in the present and prevent problems from arising in the future.
We also represent residential landlords and tenants. Whether our clients are considering the purchase of an income property, require the drafting or review of a lease, or require intervention in a landlord/tenant dispute, we have the necessary experience and knowledge to assist.
Commercial Real Estate and Leasing:
When purchasing, selling, or leasing a commercial property, there are multiple factors to consider, such as title searches, zoning by-laws and environmental concerns. We manage these considerations on our clients’ behalf, so they can stay focussed on their business.
We also advise commercial landlords and tenants, reviewing and drafting lease documents, and negotiating the most favourable terms possible in order to protect our clients’ interests.
Real Estate Considerations in Estate and Family Law:
There are a wide range of real estate considerations when planning or administering an estate and it is important to address them early on, as waiting too long can have the effect of limiting the options available. Similarly, there are many family situations that can require real estate transactions, such as transferring property as part of a divorce settlement or gifting property to loved ones.
We provide a comprehensive approach to our clients’ needs, and as such we can help them plan with these considerations in mind, and assist with the execution of any related transactions.
