What Our Customers Say About Us
I was so happy with the services I received at this extremely professional and toward thinking law firm. From the beginning of the transaction Axess Law guided me through a easy and painless legal experience. Axess Law’s lawyers are kind and care about their clients. The administration team is also very knowledgeable and organized. I would recommend this firm to anyone looking for a professional legal experience.
Extremely impressed by the services and convenience provided by Axess Law. We have engaged with Davinder a few times for different services, and it has been a breeze each time. We've been able to do both remote and in-person visits, and she has been very professional and forthcoming in all her advice. Their prices are fair too, so I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for the legal services that they provide.
We had a family member who was in serious financial difficulty due to the Covid-19 pandemic impact on their income. I contacted Trina Powell with Axess Law following considerable research. Our experience with Trina and her firm exceeded our expectations in terms of fast response to our inquiry, sensitive consultation, appropriate solution, and follow-up. The best word to describe our experience is "professional."
I contacted Axess Law to prepare a legal document; they have a very easy online booking system. When I arrived to thier office I dealt with a lawyer by the name Pratheeb Uthayakumar; he is very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. I highly recommended Axess Law.
Great experience, professional, knowledgable and pleasant staff, they guide you through a simplified process and explain everything. I definitely recommend them and will return again for future business.

File a request for reconsideration with the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). MPAC responds in writing and based on that, you can decide whether to accept their decision or appeal to the Ontario Assessment Review Board. You may have a case if:
- similar properties are assessed more favourably
- there’s a mismatch between the last sale price and current assessment
- your property is misclassified (size, area, structures onsite)
- school funding has been miscalculated
- MPAC’s records are wrong
- your property assessment change notice or amended notice contain mistakes.
Purchasing a condo you discover is unfit for its intended purpose, or so defective you wouldn’t have bought it for the purchase or any price, can be grounds for legal action in Ontario. Latent (hidden) defects can sour any home buying experience, but they must be significant to be actionable. To qualify, latent detects must:
- exist from the moment you buy the home
- not be visible or immediately apparent when you buy
- go unrevealed at the time of purchase.
Axess Law Stratford refers you to trusted legal partners if you plan a Small Claims Court action, or need ongoing legal advice on what to do now.
You might negotiate a flat rate fee with your lawyer — Axess Law’s fees are all flat rates — but otherwise, no.
Closing costs are fixed fees that add as much as about 5% to the cost of a home. They include land transfer taxes, plus Toronto’s municipal land transfer tax, title and fire insurance, and registering title to your property. Legal fees and your share of property taxes and utilities are included.
For high-ratio mortgages with less than 20% down, mortgage default insurance is added to your costs. HST of 13%, minus any rebates you qualify for, is due for new or substantially renovated homes.
As the closing day draws near, your Axess Law lawyer will contact you to finalize the amount you need to bring to our office to conclude your home purchase.
