Do I Really Need a Lawyer?

Your home will likely be the single most expensive purchase you ever make, so it makes sense to protect your interests by using a lawyer to handle the paperwork. Only a trained and qualified BC lawyer can provide you with the legal information and guidance to advise you on a property transaction in BC. While a BC notary public is trained to draw up the documents involved, they have no formal legal training and are not licensed to practice law. Most issues and problems that arise in a real estate transaction can be solved relatively quickly and without great cost, if both parties are aware of their legal rights and responsibilities. Without proper and timely legal advice, small problems can become very big and expensive later on.

Compare Costs of a Lawyer to Notary

If cost is an issue, then you may be very surprised to discover that lawyers and notaries charge similar amounts for the same transaction. One of the greatest myths in real estate conveyancing is that notaries are far cheaper than lawyers. It is not the case. A call to our offices will confirm that the conveyancing charges are very competitive.

How Quickly Can We Close the Deal?

Our office can provide instantaneous electronic registration in the BC Land Title Office system. Quick closing are available if necessary. Please call us to learn more!
