Calgary Residential Real Estate Lawyers Acting for Buyers, Sellers, Lenders & Developers
There is significant legal and financial risk in entering a residential real estate transaction without proper guidance from an experienced lawyer. Without sound legal advice, you could end up paying more than you should for your home (or will accept an offer that is too low), or worse yet, you could end up with a deal that falls through due to missed paperwork, or details that go unnoticed.
At DBH Law in Calgary, our real estate lawyers have more than 25 years of combined experience acting for purchasers, lenders, and developers through all stages of residential real estate transactions.
We help our clients avoid huge areas of risk, including poorly drafted or incomplete agreements of purchase and sale, hidden fees, encroachment or easement issues, complex concerns like properties held in trust, and similar pitfalls. We also look for contract language which may impose unfavourable duties or obligations.
Residential Real Estate Services for Purchasers & Sellers
The purchase or sale of a new home or condo is often the single largest investment a person will ever make. Without representation from a lawyer, you may be surprised with unexpected fees, liabilities and risks you never even considered, and other unforeseen issues.
Our experienced real estate lawyers diligently review all paperwork, looking for mistakes or omissions that could have serious consequences, such as granting someone an unintended easement on your property. We also work to ensure the agreed upon terms of purchase and sale are in line with our clients’ interest. For example, a purchaser agreeing to buy a home with the condition of securing financing will want to make sure they don’t unintentionally agree to unfavourable financing terms.
At DBH Law, we work in a pragmatic and cost-effective way to help you with the successful purchase or sale of your home. We understand that individuals selling or purchasing a home are faced with a number of often overwhelming expenses, and as such, we offer competitive fees while providing outstanding service.
Our Residential Real Estate Services for Lenders
DBH Law represents residential real estate lenders by helping to structure and execute real estate loans. We are aware of the significant risk lenders assume in real estate transactions, such as not properly securing a loan, leaving a lender vulnerable if repayment becomes an issue.
We aim to provide a seamless transaction for our clients as well as their customers, the borrowers. We can help find solutions to difficult problems and assist our clients in navigating the complex area of collateralized loans. Since we also work with purchasers, we are experienced in identifying and addressing potential problems early, minimizing all potential risks, and helping to quickly close transactions that meet everyone’s needs.
