In Milton, my guess is that 80% of legal matters involve real estate. In over 30 years of practicing law, I've closed thousands of real estate deals, having the experience and knowledge to close your real estate purchase or sale in a seamless fashion at a highly competitive fee. I'm available for evening and weekend appointments, not rigid law office hours. You will also meet with me face-to-face and not with a clerk or assistant.
My fee for a Sale is $695.00 plus HST and disbursements. My fee for a Purchase (including a mortgage) is $895.00 plus HST and disbursements.
What are disbursements? Simply put, these are amounts that I pay out of my pocket for your benefit before your deal closes. Typically, I will pay a title search fee before closing so that I can determine there are no liens or encumbrances registered against the property you are buying. In appropriate cases, I will pay for a clearance letter from the municipal tax or building department to ensure there are no unpaid taxes or zoning infractions registered against the property. In all cases I will pay the cost of registering title in your name at the Registry Office. Once the transaction closes I simply ask that you reimburse me for these disbursements. I assure you there is no mark up whatsoever on these disbursements.
