Buying a House – An experienced lawyer is your best protection

An experienced lawyer is your best protection

Your offer on a house was accepted! Now what?

Whether you’re buying your first home, changing locations or purchasing an investment property, you will need an experienced real estate lawyer to protect you along the way. A lawyer will help to ensure that you get exactly what you have agreed to buy, at the price you agreed to pay and on the agreed terms.

Your lawyer will do a title search of the property to ensure that there are no unanticipated "surprises" registered against your property - sellers’ mortgages, unpaid historical property taxes, builders’ liens, and certificates of pending litigation must all be dealt with to ensure that you obtain clear title. Your lawyer will make sure that these issues are addressed by the seller and removed before the completion date.

Financing your purchase? You must also ensure that the lawyer you choose to represent you is approved by your bank or credit union. If not, you will be unable to use that lawyer, or you may have to pay for the services of two lawyers.

If a problem or a dispute arises, a lawyer can protect your interests while providing appropriate legal advice along the way.

Our goal is to ensure that your deal closes smoothly and that our clients stay informed and have a stress free experience – from before they sign a binding contract to long after they take possession.
