WHAT IS RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE LAW?

Residential real estate law refers to legal services related to homeownership, such as buying or selling a home, land title transfers, refinancing a mortgage, and real estate law litigation.

The lawyers at Navigator Law also have expertise in other real estate law services such as commercial real estate law and condominium real estate law.

At our law office, we provide advice and support for all your legal needs related to residential real estate law. We can help protect your assets and save you money by providing you sound legal advice.

Real Estate Transactions

Whether you are buying a new home, selling your home, or buying recreational real estate, Navigator Law can guide you through the legal process.

Real estate transactions are typically made via a real estate purchase contract. Industry-wide, realtors in Alberta utilize a standardized contract. If your transaction does not involve a realtor, a lawyer can review the contract that is offered by the purchaser.

Buying a Home

From analyzing paperwork such as the purchase contract, property title, and bank documents to conducting a detailed land title search, there are a number of ways that our real estate lawyers can protect the rights of buyers and ensure that the purchase of a property goes smoothly. 

Selling Your Home

Many real estate sales contracts are conditional on a lawyer review before being finalized. It is a good idea for sellers to get a real estate lawyer to review the sales contract, as it is a legally binding contract. Our lawyers can help detect any issues and ensure you fully understand what the contract terms mean for you.

Mortgage Refinancing

In Alberta, there is no requirement to use a lawyer when refinancing a mortgage. However, mortgage loans involve significant volumes of paperwork that can make the process difficult and stressful. At Navigator Law, our real estate lawyers can provide a thorough review of your new loan to ensure that you are comfortable with the terms and conditions. 

Land Title Transfers

If you’re looking for help with the transfer of land ownership through a title transfer, the real estate lawyers at Navigator Law can help. We make the process of transferring land ownership quick and easy and ensure that your land title transfer meets all the legal requirements.

A real estate lawyer can ensure your rights and interests are protected and prevent any legal issues when dealing with real estate transactions.

Most couples choose to register their title as joint tenants, which means if one spouse dies the other automatically inherits the property.

It is also possible to register the title as tenants in common, which is useful when more than two people own a property. Tenants in common means that each owner separately owns part of the home that can be sold or left to someone else in a will without the consent of the other owner(s).

Dower rights are defined by an Alberta statute called the Dower Act. It prevents the selling or mortgaging of a matrimonial home without the consent of a spouse. In order for a spouse to consent to the sale of a home, he or she must sign a document with consent before a Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths.
