Resale Homes

resale home

Resale homes can be a great value. They can also present legal challenges.

  • The fence you admire could be just over your neighbour’s property line.
  • The new, homeowner-installed chandelier could be a fire hazard.
  • Termites, asbestos, radon or lead-based paint can add thousands to your costs.
  • The backyard paving stones may be hiding an oil spill.
  • Then there’s the aging septic system.
  • Planning to subdivide? Have you checked your zoning?
  • And be ready to take down the kitchen addition if it was built without a permit.

Protecting Your Investment

No need to give up on buying a resale property. Your Axess Law real estate lawyer will protect your interests in what could be the largest financial transaction of your life.

Your real estate lawyer can ensure your offer to purchase takes potential problems into account before and after you buy. Realtors help you find a property and communicate with the seller. Your real estate lawyer ensures your agreement of purchase and sale is valid. We explain what your offer means and how to make changes or additions. Our legal advice may prevent unexpected costs or, if the deal falls through, protect your down payment.

How your Real Estate Lawyer can Help

Your lawyer will check for property disclosure statements and advise you on all of the “subject tos” in your offer. Say you require a mortgage: how your offer is worded matters if you can’t get financing in time. Ever bought something you regretted? Real estate deals are like that. Backing out can be tricky. Without a lawyer, you may get more than you bargained for.

Our real estate lawyers can:

  • Review your agreement of purchase and sale
  • Review property title for you and your lender
  • Explain any uncommon items found on title to the property, such as easements or restrictions on the use of the property
  • Confirm zoning bylaws for any intended additions or improvements
  • Finalize mortgage and payment arrangements
  • and much, much more.

We explain all of the steps in buying a resale home and finalize the paperwork for you, taking the stress out of a very important transaction.


It was a pleasure working with Patricia from Axess Law. It was my first time purchasing a home, and was very nervous about every step in the process. I called and emailed Patricia several times with the silliest questions. She answered them all promptly, and provided the best customer service I could ask for. I would recommend Axess Law and particularly Patricia to everyone.

In the past I had to make appointments and waited for days to see a lawyer. Now conveniently this office is at my neighborhood supermarket. I was able to walk in and get my documents signed in less than 30 minutes The staff are courteous and professional. I would recommend anyone. Prompt service.

I am writing this review on behalf of my daughter who completed her first Real Estate condo transaction with AxessLaw. Besides just helping my daughter as a client, they helped her understand every single step involved in the process and the whole process was completed without any problems. I would recommend them to anyone looking for hassle free real estate transaction without thinking twice.
