What Legal Advice Do I Need?

When investing in a home, there are many issues that may require legal advice, such as title or ownership issues, tax issues, estate issues, the list goes on and on.  There are two options when choosing legal representation:  Lawyer or Notary Public.
 

What's the Difference?

The main difference between Lawyers and Notaries Public, regarding real estate transactions, is that a Notary cannot represent you in a court of law in a litigation, whereas a Lawyer can.  However, some Lawyers do not handle Real Estate Conveyancing, making a Notary a popular choice.
 

What Do They Do?

Your Lawyer or Notary Public of choice will take care of all the legal documentation of the transaction.  They will handle the transferring of funds from the Purchaser's mortgage provider to the Seller, the transfer of the title of the property with the provincial Land Titles Office, calculate the adjustments for Property Taxes, remit provincial and or federal taxes on the sale and much more.  We work very closely with your legal representative to ensure a seamless transition into your new home.
