Real Estate Transactions

Real Estate Lawyer in Toronto and Richmond Hill

Buying and selling property can be far more complicated than it seems. In fact, the act of purchasing or selling a home is often one of the most significant financial transactions one encounters during their lifetime. Accordingly, and especially since such transactions involve binding contracts, they should be reviewed by a qualified real estate lawyer to ensure your rights and interests are protected.

The real estate lawyers and staff at Seif Law Firm have extensive experience and can provide insight, advice, and guidance to ensure your real estate transactions close smoothly.

Thus, we continually strive to alleviate the stress involved by always pursuing successful closings of your real transactions without any complications.

A real estate lawyer prepares and reviews the documents related to the real estate purchase, making sure all the terms and conditions are in their client’s best interest.

How can you find a good real estate lawyer in Richmond Hill?

A good real estate lawyer is one specialized in real estate transactions and they also have expertise with the type of property you want to buy or sell. And obviously, the longer a real estate lawyer has been in practice, the more value they can offer you.

Who pays the closing costs when buying real estate?

The purchaser always pays the closing costs regardless of the type of property at hand. So, whether it’s a residential property or a commercial one, the purchaser is always responsible for real estate closing costs
