Purchase and Sale of Residential Property

Generally, a buyer and seller will not consult a lawyer until they have entered into an agreement for the purchase and sale of a property.


Sometimes, you may need to refinance your mortgage due to the fluctuations in the marketplace, such as changes in interest rates, or when you consider the amount of equity you may have in your property.

Co-ownership Agreements

You may be considering co-owning a property with a relative, close friend or your spouse. Whether it’s an investment property or your first home, it is important to clearly understand what the obligations and interests will be under the ownership structure you plan to enter into.

Transfer of Title

Title transfer involves the transfer of land ownership from one person to another. It is one of the most fundamental steps in the Purchase and Sale of a Residential Property.
