When should I see my lawyer when I want to buy or sell my property?
AWhen buying a property, it’s a good idea to have a lawyer examine the legal title before you enter a binding agreement to purchase the property. For example, if the reason you like a particular property is that it has a large backyard and you want to build a swimming pool, your lawyer will be able to check if there are any restrictions on swimming pools contained in ‘restrictive covenants’ or ‘easements’ registered on title. If you sign the contract to buy the property before checking title, and find out later on that you can’t build a swimming pool, you may not be able to get out of the contract.
When selling a property, it’s a good idea to have a lawyer examine legal title to your home at the time you sign your listing agreement with your realtor. Mortgages are not automatically discharged from title when they are paid off, and we occasionally find that a mortgage that was paid off over a decade ago will still be registered on title. It can be difficult to get these old mortgages discharged from title if the lender has died or cannot be found. Your lawyer will need time to address these types of issues, and finding them out at the last minute can cause a deal to collapse.
