Real Estate Law
Morris Law covers all aspects of real estate law for first time buyers, property developers, commercial owners and those selling or renovating their family homes.
Buying And Selling Residential Property
Morris Law has worked with numerous clients over the years who have gone through the process of buying or selling a home for the first time. Similarly, we have worked on dozens of property sales with experienced owners who are looking to streamline the often tedious process of buying and selling real estate in Vancouver.
Buying And Selling Commercial Property
Whether you are buying or selling a business or a multi unit property, our real estate legal team can guide you through the process to ensure you get the most out of your investment.
New Mortgages And Refinancing
Getting it right with financing and mortgages is essential in both residential real estate and commercial.
Whether refinancing to renovate a family home or investment property, or so that you can consolidate debt, Morris Law will guide you through the refinance process and make it quick and simple for you.
Transferring the title of a property involves multiple documents, whether you are transferring it within a family or not. A real estate lawyer will oversee this process to ensure new ownership structure takes effect quickly and correctly.
If you are purchasing or selling a business, we will work with you and your team of advisors to ensure that the necessary due diligence is conducted to minimize risk, and that all steps are taken to carry out the transaction in an efficient manner, while keeping you informed throughout the process.
When you’re investing in real estate with another person it is important to enter into a written co-ownership agreement to help avoid and resolve disputes in the future, without the need to resort to litigation. The co-ownership agreement will set key terms which will govern how the property is owned and managed, including the monetary contributions of each owner, how they will be registered on title, responsibilities for ongoing repairs, decisions that require unanimous decision, and mechanisms for selling the property.
