Real estate buyers

Smeets Law assists clients through the entire real estate purchase process.

This begins with the Agreement of Purchase and Sale, which outlines each party’s rights and obligations and sets out the terms that must be fulfilled before final closing.

Your lawyer at Smeets Law will ensure that contract terms are fulfilled and obligations are met, and that you obtain what you are entitled to before the agreement is finalized. This includes obtaining a title to your property that is free of liens, debts, mortgages, and title defects.

Contact Smeets Law if you are a real estate purchaser.

Real estate sellers

Your lawyer at Smeets Law will make sure that you provide the buyer with only what you have agreed to provide. Your lawyer will also ensure that funds are properly transferred and received before title to the property is released to the buyer.

Know all the costs

Closing costs can include: Land Transfer Tax, registration fees, legal fees and costs, disbursements, title insurance, other taxes, and adjustments on closing for items such as property taxes.

For many purchasers, these additional costs come as an unpleasant surprise. Consult with a lawyer at Smeets Law now to avoid surprises later.
