We couldn’t be happier with the service we were provided!

We had the pleasure to work with Shaindel and Sanjay at the time of our refinancing. From day one Shaindel was so wonderful and so helpful and was there for us through every step of the way. She was always so pleasant and thorough, making sure we understood everything and answered all of our questions, no matter how many we had! Big thank you to Shaindel for making what can sometimes be a stressful situation so easy and for supporting us through it! Sanjay was very informative and everything you would expect/need in a lawyer. We couldn't be happier with the service we were provided. Thank you Shaindel and Sanjay !

A Pleasure to Work With

The team at Diamond and Diamond, especially Maryum, were a pleasure to work with on the refinancing of our home. She took care of everything in a timely and professional manner, we would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others.
Michael Alonzi Toronto, ON

Knowing what is happening on a file every step of the way!

Shaindel is a professional that you don't find out there at all and I have been doing mortgages for over 20 years. Her service is excellent and she responds timely even when the workload is high. As a broker, all we ever ask is that the individuals we work with on a file are there to answer questions and are high on communication (knowing what is happening on a file every step of the way). Shaindel talks and walks the walk. Very impressive! Thank you Shaindel and Diamond and Diamond and looking forward to doing more deals together.

Why You Need a Real Estate Lawyer to Help You

You may be tempted to try to handle a real estate transaction on your own. However, this can be a big mistake as there are many complexities associated with the law and regulations that you need to be aware of well before you begin. Whether you are interested in selling or buying residential or commercial property, it is strongly recommended that you obtain help from an experienced Toronto real estate lawyer.

Your lawyer will be up to date on all of the relevant regulations and laws associated with real estate transactions and will have the experience of helping other clients just like you through this process.

New Home Purchases

The majority of new home buyers may not realize the meaning of all of the clauses in an agreement to Purchase or Sale (APS) . For example, one of the most common clauses may allow builders to charge additional unexpected costs for various items and there may be significant delays to the closing dates without any compensation for any of the parties involved.

When purchasing a brand new home from a builder, a residential real estate lawyer in Toronto should review the contract to ensure consumers rights are protected. The right representation can help the contract to be negotiated in a way that is fair for everyone.

Preparing the Agreement of Purchase or Sale

Lawyers in Toronto lend expertise with reviewing various forms for sale and purchase offers through a real estate agent. A lawyer can also assist with the preparation of these critical documents.

Title Searches

In buying a property, the title search is a required step. This helps to reveal information about the property such as any judgments, liens, current and prior ownership and other outstanding agreements.

Outstanding taxes may be checked and arrangements are made to have the utilities read and transferred on closing and this information is important for anyone engaged in a real estate transaction. You should have clear expectations upfront so that you know how the process will unfold.

Purchasing New Condominiums

The procedures for buying a condominium are different from a regular home. With two separate closing dates and various rules that must be followed, a prospective buyer should be kept in the loop so that he or she can make appropriate plans.

Preparation of Documents

Many different documents must be created with any real estate transaction, and a commercial or residential real estate lawyer in Toronto will assemble and prepare all of the necessary paperwork and documentation.

Mortgage Preparation

An experienced Toronto real estate lawyer will help to represent your interests from the outset of your commercial or residential real estate transaction. The mortgage preparation process includes meeting with you to review the conditions and terms of the mortgage and to ensure that they are in line with what you previously outlined with representatives from the bank.

Management of Closing Funds

Several days prior to your closing date your Toronto real estate lawyer will meet with you to sign and review any closing documents. It is important to understand what funds will be due on the closing date, like a refund on the prepaid property taxes or a land transfer tax. These funds will be separate from any mortgage funds that are provided by the lender so you need to be aware of these and how they will influence you well in advance.

Property Closing

Rather than having the deed and mortgage registered in person at your local land registry office, Toronto real estate lawyers can assist you with electronic registration and filing all of the necessary forms in advance.

No matter what type of transaction you are entering into, you need an experienced Real Estate lawyer who has who can help advise you about what to expect and to answer your critical questions. Don’t wait to schedule an appointment with a Toronto real estate lawyer today.
