An experienced residential purchase lawyer will navigate you through all the intricacies of your real estate transaction and help eliminate the present and future risks.

Transfer of Land Title, Change of Ownership

Placing a child or a spouse to the title can be a part of your estate planning strategy. Alternatively, you may want to remove your ex partner from the title when your relationship ends. Occasionally, you may need to put a friend as a co-signor for a mortgage and as a co-owner of your house to facilitate your mortgage financing. While life circumstances change, it is always important to have a trusted real estate lawyer as a shoulder to lean on.

Release of Dower Rights

A Dower Release has one spouse give up their interest in the family home so that the other spouse can dispose of the real estate property at their discretion. With so much at stake, the law requires that a Dower Release be signed in front of a lawyer. Should a Dower Release be an option for you, we can help you ensure that it is signed and registered properly.

WHAT DOES A REAL ESTATE LAWYER DO?

Real estate attorneys provide legal support and mortgage documents in real estate transactions. They render a variety of legal services related to a home purchase or real estate transaction and can take care of all your legal matters. They review real estate documents and titles and ensure that each party to the transaction performs the contract. In addition to due diligence and legal advice, Calgary real estate lawyers assist with residential and commercial closings, foreclosures, mortgage documents, court representation, and leases. A competent real estate law firm will be with you through every one of the property transaction phases.

WHY DO HOME BUYERS NEED A REAL ESTATE LAWYER?

For many people, a real estate purchase is one of their most significant life events. Unfortunately, making a mistake when buying a house is easy yet expensive, whether purchasing your first residential property, switching properties or title transfers. Let our team of real estate lawyers in Calgary simplify this transaction for you and make it secure.

Real estate lawyers typically overview all the issues related to a transaction. They confirm if the property title is valid and there are no liens registered on it, check taxes, assist with financing and ensure that the seller fully performs the contract, and the buyers receive everything they are entitled to receive.

WHY DO YOU NEED A REAL ESTATE LAWYER FOR YOUR HOUSE SALE?

Let’s face it – people do not sell their houses every day. Each transaction is unique and has its own intricacies. After all, there’s a bunch of money at stake. Real estate lawyers close tons of transactions and residential purchases and know the ins and outs of the real estate routine. A good real estate lawyer will know the residential and commercial law in your area to protect you from legal troubles by carefully examining all aspects of your sale. They will complete your transaction as smoothly as possible to save you time and money.

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE LAWYERS

Commercial real estate transactions are highly sophisticated. A good real estate law firm is essential to make them run as smoothly as possible. Commercial real estate lawyers handle the due diligence, flag the contract pitfalls, and simplify the closing with their legal services. They can also assist in negotiations to get you the best deal or find a solution that works for all parties.

Legal technicalities are tough to navigate, and making a mistake can be costly. Calgary real estate lawyers have the legal experience to save you costs and grief when dealing with legal documents, title transfers and mortgage lenders for your Calgary real estate purchase.

DO I ACTUALLY NEED A REAL ESTATE LAWYER?

The answer is a resounding yes. It is vital to have a real estate lawyer for your transaction because they help protect your interest, avoid expensive mistakes and unnecessary expenses.

Calgary real estate lawyers conduct due diligence, review and prepare the paperwork and ensure that payments run smoothly and that each party gets what they are entitled to during the property purchase.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT REAL ESTATE LAWYERS IN CALGARY

Not every lawyer can handle your real estate law inquires. Experience matters, and a good real estate lawyer must have seen plenty of real estate transactions to provide the right advice. Honesty is also important, so stay away from a lawyer who sounds too optimistic as there are risks to almost every case. Similarly, look for a real estate law firm with transparent legal fees and costs as you want to avoid unhappy monetary surprises in the end. Finally, find your person because you want to work with a lawyer you like throughout the duration of the real estate services.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REALTOR AND A REAL ESTATE LAWYER?

In a nutshell, real estate agents or realtors work on a practical side of a real estate transaction. Real estate agents will evaluate clients’ needs, arrange for showings, assist in negotiations, and provide professional advice on the fair market price of the property.

On the other hand, a real estate solicitor works on the legal aspects of a transaction. Lawyers conduct searches, assist with the paperwork and ensure that a transaction closes as the parties agreed upon.

REAL ESTATE LAWYER COST

While hiring a real estate team adds legal costs, this will ultimately benefit you and save you from trouble in the long term.

The legal fees in real estate transactions depend on the property value, disbursements, and transaction complexity. For a standard residential transaction, the fees can be as low as $700, not including considerable disbursements and registration costs. Therefore, it is important to confirm all fees and additional charges with the Calgary lawyers you reach out to in advance to avoid unpleasant surprises.
