Hire A Lawyer

It is important that you have legal representation for your transaction. Your lawyer will represent your interests and will process the legal documentation. In addition, they will:

  1. Conduct a title search on the property to determine:
    • Outstanding work orders issued by the municipality
    • An accurate description of the lawful use of the property
    • Restrictions as to the insurability of the property
    • Encumbrances, liens, easements, encroachments, or other claims registered on title (for example undisclosed mortgages, rights-of-ways etc.)
  2. Make requisitions to the seller’s solicitor within the predetermined date set out in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale.
  3. Arrange with the lender for the transfer of funds when all searches are satisfied.
  4. Contact the utility companies and the tax department to determine amounts, if any, in arrears for closing adjustments
  5. Arrange for title insurance on your behalf, to protect you and the lender against defects in the property’s title or zoning.
  6. Meet with you, 1 or 2 days before closing date to review and sign closing documents (mortgage, deeds etc.)
  7. Meet with seller’s lawyer on date of closing to exchange documents, funds and keys and register all documents on title.
