Residential Real Estate
We know that buying or selling a home can be a stressful process and we work hard to close your transaction smoothly and accurately.
We maintain open lines of communication with our clients and strive to ensure that our clients fully understand all aspects of their legal obligations pursuant to the agreement of purchase and sale and the legal implications contained in the closing documents. Law firms are often retained after an agreement of purchase and sale has been signed, however we are able to review or draft these agreements for clients before they are signed to ensure clients are protected and fully understand what they are signing.
We can assist clients with a variety of real estate matters, including:
- Purchase or sale transactions of both used residential and new builds
- Reviewing or drafting agreements of purchase and sale
- Drafting closing documents
- Obtaining a title insurance policy
- Completing mortgage documentation and registration
- Title transfers
We have extensive experience in assisting developers and builders with their legal needs beyond simple acquisition and disposition transactions. Our knowledge in the areas of land use planning, development and municipal law allows us to provide our clients with strategies and solutions to meet their development and building needs.
Please see our Municipal Law page for more information.

We provide a range of services for commercial real estate transactions, including acquisitions and dispositions of assets and shares, negotiating and drafting commercial leases, advising on real property ownership structures including partnership, joint venture and shareholder arrangements. We also draft and advise on a full range of construction and development-related agreements.
