Things to Know When Hiring a Real Estate Lawyer
Toronto Residential Real Estate Lawyer
A real estate lawyer looks out for your interests and make sure the deal closes.
A real estate lawyer will ensure that you aware of any notable risks that are involved with your purchase or sale of a home. A lawyer will conduct searches to see if there are any issues related to the property. The bottom line is that you want to make sure you are obtaining the full rights to the property, and that nothing comes to haunt you later on, such as a previously undisclosed claim against the property for unpaid property taxes.
A real estate lawyer prepares all the paperwork you will need to sign and advise you what you need to do in order to close the transaction properly.
Most people look for a real estate lawyer after they have signed the Agreement of Purchase and Sale. Our advice, however, is that earlier is better – and at no extra cost to you.
A real estate lawyer can give you the best advice on what clauses can best protect your interests according to your particular situation. This is probably the most important investment you will make – be sure to receive the best advice before signing away.
The legal fees and costs can be broken down into the following areas:
- Legal fees you pay the lawyer
- Disbursements: out of pocket expenses necessary to properly transfer the title of the property to you or the purchaser
- Land transfer tax: the tax you pay to the province and the municipal government
Our approach is to be completely transparent and open about the money that comes out of your pocket. Many lawyers only quote the legal fee, but we know that this is not the complete amount that comes out of your pocket. People are often surprised by the final bill. We do not want that for you. There are specific charges and expenses on top of the legal fee you pay.
