Purchases and Sales Our main focus is on residential real estate. With over 35 years of experience, we’ve seen just about everything that could come up in a real estate transaction. Whether you are selling, purchasing or refinancing your mortgage, you can be sure your transaction is in good hands.
Whether you are refinancing for a better mortgage rate, taking out equity from your property or consolidating your debt, our office can guide you through the process.
For transfer/refinance transactions as the result of a relationship breakdown, many lenders will also require a fully executed separation agreement prior to mortgage approval. Our family lawyers can assist you in this process as well for a smooth transaction.
We also offer other land titles services such as title transfers, lien and caveat removals.
For a free and accurate quote, please call or e-mail our office. For purchases, please also include your purchase price, the name of your lender and principal mortgage amount.
In a will, you name the beneficiaries who will inherit your estate and name an executor to carry out your last wishes. You can appoint someone to be the guardian for your dependent children and also specify what you would like done with your remains.
Do you already have a will with us and want something changed? Our office provides revisions to your existing documents free of charge.
Enduring Power of Attorney and Personal Directives
Enduring Powers of Attorney and Personal Directives (also known as a living will) come into effect should you lose mental capacity, not only through age-related illness such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, but also if you get into an accident or have a brain injury. An Enduring Power of Attorney appoints someone to look after your real estate and any financial matters, while a Personal Directive sets out your end-of-life decisions and appoints someone to make health and personal decisions on your behalf.
Please call or e-mail our office and one of our experienced estate planning lawyers will contact you to get started.
A divorce can be a difficult and emotional process. Our office can help you through the steps. The process begins with one party filing a Statement of Claim for Divorce in Alberta courts, setting out the details of the marriage and separation. The filed Statement of Claim is then served on the other spouse, who has 20 days to file a response (if served in Alberta). If the parties agree to the divorce or the party served does not respond, the party who commenced the divorce action may proceed with filing the remaining documentation to complete the process.
Our office offers services for pre-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, separation agreements and matrimonial property settlements. We offer flat rate fees for drafting and executing agreements where the parties are in mutual agreement regarding their property, spousal support, child support, etc.
Sometimes you can’t come to an agreement. For contested family matters including claims for child support, spousal support and other family matters, please contact our office.
