Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare for the purchase or sale of a home?
Our law firm has established an efficient routine for real estate transactions. Begin by having your real estate agent email a copy of the agreement of purchase and sale to the lawyer that will be handling your real estate transaction. This is best achieved by writing an email to your agent and copying the lawyer to the email. Next, one of our law clerks will provide you with a clear and concise memorandum outlining everything that you need to do for the purchase or sale (or both). She will also assist you through the information gathering process. Once all of the information is gathered, the lawyer will prepare the transaction and schedule an appointment with you to sign documents and answer any questions that you may have.
How do I prepare for my first consultation?
Our lawyers routinely provide one-hour consultations. This is an opportunity for you to meet one of our lawyers and determine whether they are the right fit for you and your situation. Prior to your consultation, prepare a concise summary of your situation and a list of questions that you would like the lawyer to answer. Bring both to the consultation along with any documents that are relevant, including court documents, relevant correspondence, etc. At the consultation, the lawyer will gather information from you and provide you with a legal opinion which will include the options that are available to you. After the consultation, the lawyer will report to you by letter or email summarizing the information that was taken and the advice that was provided. You are then left to decide whether to retain the lawyer to carry out the recommendations that were made.
