Skilled Toronto Residential Real Estate Lawyers
Buying or selling a home is a major undertaking. While these transactions may seem routine, there are a number of pitfalls that can derail a closing if a lawyer fails to devote the proper care and attention to the matter. With housing prices what they are, securing a lawyer skilled in real estate closings is crucial. A home is a person’s most valuable asset and it’s important that their lawyer treats it as such.
Real Estate Law: It’s in the Details
The real estate lawyers at GLG LLP personally review and handle every file. They pride themselves on their meticulous attention to detail when it comes to transactional work. Unlike many other real estate practices, GLG LLP lawyers do not pass files off to assistants to manage in an assembly-line fashion, with lawyers showing up to sign off on documents just before closing. When the firm receives a new file, one of their experienced real estate lawyers promptly reviews all of the documentation in full. They closely examine title to the property, financing details, and all requisition letters from the other party’s counsel to identify and proactively address any potential issues. Discovering a problem at the eleventh hour of a real estate transaction often results in severe consequences, affecting title insurance, financing, and the ability to close as scheduled, which can lead to costly litigation. The firm’s unique approach of direct lawyer involvement from day one ensures potential problems are handled before they even become an issue.

In-House Real Estate Litigators
Most real estate law firms are made up exclusively of transactional lawyers, meaning that if litigation becomes necessary, clients must seek outside counsel to represent them in court. GLG LLP is ready to handle any real estate litigation in-house, with lawyers who are already familiar with the file and the related issues. In addition, because of their litigation experience, they are skilled at identifying and proactively addressing issues from the start, avoiding litigation down the road.
