Residential Purchase And Sale Lawyer For Toronto

Buying or selling a home can be exciting, and is often part of moving and starting a new life.

At Yigal Rifkind, Barrister & Solicitor, we understand that your purchase or sale is only a small part of what's going on in your life. We want to make sure the transaction itself doesn't take up time and effort that may be in short supply during this time. We will handle all of the technical aspects and make sure everything goes smoothly, so that you are not derailed by delays or complications.

We will also answer your questions and let you know what to expect throughout the process, especially if you are a new home buyer.

Buying Or Selling Your Home

As part of our services, we will:

  • Explain all issues of timing
  • Pay out any relevant costs, including commissions and closing costs
  • Perform all searches, including title and taxes
  • Go over the condo documents and answer questions about how condo property may be different from freehold property if you are purchasing a condominium

  • Go over all the additional complications that may arise and explain your rights and responsibilities if your home is new construction

  • Review your contract with you so that you understand what you are signing
  • Prepare and register your mortgage
  • Answer your questions about title insurance and surveys, and discuss whether you may need a new survey, either as buyer or seller
  • Work with your real estate agent if necessary
  • Complete closing activities

If there are any problems, we will let you know as soon as possible. It is best if any problems can be taken care of before any contract is signed, but if they cannot be, they should be taken into account in the agreement of purchase and sale, and may influence the price or the timing of your deal.

Our lawyer can also help you if something goes wrong with the performance of the contract or with the property in question. Although we prefer for your sake to handle any disputes outside of court, we are prepared to litigate if necessary.

Our flat fee is $850 for all services related to a purchase, and $750 for a sale.
