Legal Services  Welcome

Canada has one of the most advanced and most secure property registration systems in the world. It offers an unusual degree of certainty in regard to the ownership of property, specifically as it pertains to the details of owners past and present, details of the extent of the property and any limitations or rights in and to the property.

The stringent requirements of the law ensure that you, as the purchaser, are assured that the correct property is transferred to you, that it is free of any encumbrance pertaining to a previous owner, i.e. the previous mortgage is paid out, discharged from the title and freed from all encumbrances prior to transfer of the property being registered in your name.

Notwithstanding this, as a purchaser / seller of a property, you may still have certain concerns and queries and our Legal Services section is designed to give you some insight into these issues.

Our Legal Insight section deals with a variety of property related legal matters, from the RSP Home Buyers Plan, to purchasing and selling real estate as a non-resident, and to property transfer tax.

Our Solicitor/Notary Search facility will enable you to find specialists to deal with your conveyancing requirements. Those listed on our website are all experts in their particular field. You can search for a solicitor/notary near you by specifying your city and/or province.

Our Terminology Section explains key terms and phrases used in property sale agreements and the conveyancing process.
