Real Estate: Buying or Selling Property
Jurmain Law Office has over 27 years of experience in providing professional and cost-effective legal services in the buying, selling, and mortgaging of residential and commercial real estate.
Jurmain Law Office is also experienced in the completion of asset and share purchases and sales. Electronic registration of land titles will soon become the reality in all of Ontario. Jurmain Law Office is fully equipped to deal with the rapidly changing technologies in the field of real estate conveyancing.
Residential Purchase and Sale
Our service includes an initial office consultation to thoroughly review with you all aspects of your real estate transaction. We will review your personal circumstances and make suggestions as to the manner in which title to the real estate should be taken.
We will thoroughly explain to you the availability of title insurance and provide you with the booklet "Working With A Lawyer" to help you in making decisions. We will explain the overall costs involved in your real estate transaction, including fees and disbursements, so you have a complete understanding of your financial obligations, and the responsibilities of all parties involved.
We will provide comprehensive personalized service so that your transaction is completed effectively. You can feel confident that you can reach your lawyer any time. Evening and weekend appointments are available at no additional cost, to suit your requirements and schedule.
Commercial Purchase and Sale
The same personalized service described for residential transactions applies to commercial transactions. However, when you are considering purchasing an on-going business, either by acquiring its assets or its shares, there are a number of specialized searches and inquiries required, which we will review with you in the initial consultation.
The most important document in a commercial acquisition or sale is the Agreement of Purchase and Sale. This document will provide, among other things, the required warrantees and representations to protect you following closing of the transaction. You are urged not to sign any agreement of purchase and sale without first having it reviewed by a lawyer experienced in this field.
Wills, Powers of Attorneys and Estates
Jurmain Law Office has over 27 years of experience in drafting wills and powers of attorneys and administering estates.
A professionally prepared will is your insurance that your wishes will be carried out after your death. Failure to prepare a will or a poorly drafted will may result in your intentions being partially or entirely negated.
Failure to prepare your own will results in the government determining how your assets will be distributed, which may not be according to your wishes.
There is too much at stake not to have a lawyer draft your will. No doubt you and your spouse have worked hard for your estate. Ensure that it is distributed wisely.
Jurmain Law Office will provide personal consultation to suit your schedule. After a thorough review with you of your personal circumstances, we will prepare a draft will for you to examine and approve. Only when you are completely satisfied and thoroughly understand the document will it be signed. You may decide to keep the original will us (at no charge) or you may wish to keep it yourself in a safe location.
Powers of Attorney
A General Power of Attorney is a powerful tool to enable your business and personal affairs to be conducted with no interruption if you are incapacitated, either mentally or physically. It also can be used in the event that you are out of the country for a period of time.
Powers of Attorney can be customized to suit your particular requirements. They can be effective immediately on signing or upon a future event. We will review with you all aspects of your Power of Attorney, and ensure you have a thorough understanding and appreciation of this important legal document.
The Province of Ontario has for the past several years permitted the preparation of Attorneys for Personal Care. This document is sometimes referred to as a "Living Will". It is not actually a Will at all. It is a document which expresses, among other things, your wishes in the event of your incapacitation, where there is no hope of recovery. It is a statement of your intentions to your loved ones as to your wishes in these circumstances. It will help them in making difficult decisions in consultation with your doctor.
Jurmain Law Office has administered estates in a timely and cost-effective manner for almost three decades.
We will sit down with you and thoroughly review the estate and advise you as to what steps are necessary to distribute the assets of the deceased. We will explain the probate process and inform you whether it is required or not. You can feel comfortable calling on us any time, and home appointments can be arranged where needed.
The loss of a family member is a difficult time for you, and our goal is to make the legal aspects of this time as free from stress as possible.
