Real Estate

We help with residential and commercial real estate matters

Buying a home or condo and developing/investing in commercial property are major transactions. They involve large sums of money and there is lots to consider. What easements or other charges are registered against the property? Should you get title insurance or a survey certificate? How does a strata corporation work? With commercial projects, issues like zoning, joint venture agreements, sub-division and financing may all come into play.
