Residential Real Estate

Our real estate team provides a full range of sophisticated legal advice for both commercial and residential transactions.

We have extensive experience working with other real estate professionals, including surveyors, appraisers, banks, lenders, real estate agents, and insurers. We also regularly draft documents for the purchase, sale, financing, mortgaging and leasing of real estate.

Our municipal law and property development experience allows us to provide effective, thorough advice, from matters involving construction, subdivision and consolidations, zoning, environmental compliance, easements and rights-of-way and all other matters associated with land development.

As our real estate practice has evolved, we have stayed abreast of new law developments. We have experience in condominium development and incorporations as well as in condominium conveyances. We also have extensive experience in the migration of titles into the Nova Scotia Land Registry system. Our Truro office was one of the first law firms in the province to operate under this system.

Our real estate lawyers also work regularly with our civil litigation and construction legal teams, who have experience with all aspects of property litigation including, expropriations, contract disputes, builder`s liens, right-of-way and easement disputes, title disputes, foreclosures and actions to enforce or defend property based security.
