Whether you are a first time home buyer or an investor we are here for you.
We handle purchases and sales (resale, preconstruction and commercial), refinances, title transfers, assignments and wills and estates. We have been practicing for almost 20 years and have closed over 15,000 real estate transactions throughout Ontario.
In today’s world, it is increasingly hard to find someone, let alone a company, that cares and is passionate. That’s where WeAreLaw comes in. Our dedicated team wants to ensure that your experience is stress-free from beginning to end while providing you with a swift, accurate and smooth closing. We are in it for the long haul and want to develop a lasting relationship with you.
Let’s be real…when it comes to one of the most valuable assets in your life, you want to be supported by a stellar group of professionals.
Our fees are ALL-INCLUSIVE. What does that really mean? We give you the total costs upfront, with no hidden legal fees popping up on the day of closing. We are straightforward.
Our all-inclusive quote includes your title insurance premium (which is one of the biggest costs in your legal fees). Title insurance protects properties against losses related to the property’s title or ownership and is mandatory in most cases.
Our Convenient Services
We offer easy-to-use remote signing, so you can safely sign your closing documents from anywhere in the world, as long as you have access to the internet (certain conditions apply; i.e. your lender/builder allows remote signing as well).
Our Status Certificate Reviews
If you’re buying a condominium unit, you’re going to need your status certificate reviewed. Our timely and detailed review includes a breakdown of the condominium’s legal and financial health. You will know if there are any existing lawsuits against or by the condominium corporation. You’ll know if your condominium has a healthy budget, if they don’t have a healthy budget then you might potentially be finding yourself paying special assessment fees at some point during your ownership. If you’d like to read more about our status certificate reviews, don’t hesitate to read our blog on that here.
Our Preconstruction/New Construction Agreement Reviews
Bought a new construction unit or home? We offer a comprehensive one-on-one video review with you and one of our lawyers, which includes a detailed cost breakdown (estimate) in one of our famous spreadsheets. There you will learn what you are expected to pay on Interim and Final Closing and also what taxes (land transfer taxes and HST Rebates) you’ll have to pay. We will also advise you of the rebates available to help you get some of this money back.
As an added service, we may make requests to the Builder’s lawyer to further negotiate your closing costs. Often, buyers don’t know their lawyer can make further requests (during the cooling-off period), even if their agent has already negotiated incentives!
Our team has closed thousands of pre-construction and assignment transactions and they have knowledge of most of the major development projects across the GTA. We know what we are talking about.
Our HST Rebate Applications
If you are purchasing a preconstruction property (or have in the past two years), you may be eligible for an HST Rebate. You want to use a team that has experience working with the CRA. We’ve completed over 400 successful HST Rebate Applications for our clients. We know what the CRA’s is looking for in these applications and the criteria for getting the application approved. You only get one shot at filing this application, so you want to ensure you don’t make any mistakes.
