Real Estate Conveyancing

The conveyancing process and practise relates to transferring property (including mortgages) from one owner to another.

Our office conducts due diligence on your behalf. This includes reviewing the title, noting ownership, reviewing charges that affect the title, or remove mortgages from title.  We obtain all relevant documents such as insurance binders, ordering strata documents, ordering title insurance policies if you are refinancing or buying a home. If you are selling a home, our office obtains payout statements from your mortgage company and documents from the Buyers notary for signing. Our office prepares the legal documents for you as a purchaser, seller, or borrower to sign and facilitates the signing and delivery of these documents to any relevant parties. Once you sign and we have all required documents, registration of land title forms take place. Upon registration, our office facilitates the transfer of funds in these transactions including receiving funds and disbursing them to you and any charge holders.

Personal Planning

Every adult who owns any assets, has a spouse, and/or minor children should have a will. Surprisingly, may people do not. Having a will shows a clear statement of what you would like done for your property and the necessary care you wish for your loved ones. You retain control and say over your property and having a Will gives confidence to your loved ones as they will be acting out your wishes. Preparing a will also gives you power to choose who will execute your wishes on your behalf.  Knowing what your intensions and wishes are will save them a significant amount of stress, money, and provide peace of mind.

Managing childcare, and providing for your dependents with no direction of how those costs will be reimbursed if your loved one has passed away. It can also create issues within a family as your wishes for distributing the estate is not known. Having a Will eliminates many of these stressful conversations and family disputes within your family.

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows another person to make financial and property related matters on your behalf. There are different types of Power of Attorney that can be tailored to your personal needs whether it is for a specific situation, general, or enduring. Our office can help guide you into preparing a Specific, General, or Enduring Power of Attorney.

Loosing a loved one or dealing with health issues that demand difficult decisions from your family is an extremely stressful experience both emotionally and financially. It can be overwhelming dealing with a loved one battling medical issues and facing decisions that can completely alter the life of your family member. Having a Representation Agreement document can help you state your wishes and take the pressure away from your family during a difficult time. Our office can help you prepare and execute a Representation Agreement and/or Advance Directive suitable for your situation.

Statutory Declarations
Certified True Copies of Documents/Identification
Insurance Loss Declarations
