Real Estate law is very unique. It is necessary to hire a real estate lawyer to complete your transaction. Once we have successfully bid on a property, I send all the documentation to the lawyer who then checks the title on the property, ensures there are no outstanding liens or encumbrances on the property and handles the transfer of title (or ownership) from the seller to you.
Depending on the property there are also often times I reach out to a lawyer in advance of us making an offer if there is something special I feel we need to have added protection for. I’ve found it is best to work with a real estate lawyer who is extremely familiar with Toronto properties, (both homes and condos) as a lack of area knowledge could hinder the deal unnecessarily.
I’m happy to provide you with names of lawyers I trust. Not all fee structures are the same and as with most things in life you get what you pay for. Reach out to me here for more information.
