Our Real Estate Services
Whether it is a house, condominium, cottage or castle, most people will find that buying property is the most significant purchase and investment they will ever undertake.
Our dedicated team of real estate lawyers and clerks will simplify the purchase process, while our multiple locations and client-friendly 7-day a week opening hours give you the freedom to complete the transaction at a time and place convenient for you, so you have more time to choose the perfect couch for your new pad!
Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing, or somewhere in between-sizing, our dedicated real estate team will help to make your property sale easy, efficient, and understandable.
Our simplified yet thorough process follows the same pattern for all real estate transactions. It’s designed to be convenient for our clients (you!) and to allow us to work effectively with no wasted time.
Whether you need to refinance to reduce monthly payments, gain lower interest rates, fund a large project, or simply change mortgage providers, we can ensure the process is quick, smooth and enjoyable.
The refinancing process requires (amongst other work) title searches and reviews, the purchase of title insurance, transferring of funds and the preparation, review and signing of closing documents.
Transfer of Title
If you intend to transfer ownership, add a person or people to a title, or remove a person or people from a title, Axess Law can ensure the process is smooth, speedy and successful.
Our experienced real estate team has deep knowledge of the process from beginning to conclusion. We understand the ins and outs of Land Transfer Tax, the rules for first-time homebuyers, spouses, parents, children, and more.
When a property is owned jointly (as Joint Tenants) and one of the owners dies, the surviving person becomes the sole owner. This is called the Right of Survivorship. In order for the sole owner to sell or mortgage the property, the deceased owner must be removed from the title by making a Survivorship Application. We can prepare and register this application for you quickly and efficiently.
Simply call us for a free quote, or pop into one of our offices. We will take some basic details and provide you with an all-inclusive quote covering our flat rate legal fee, any third party fees and taxes. There are no hidden fees or extras; your quote is all-inclusive.
Not only that but if you receive a cheaper written quote for the same service, we promise to beat it.
Land Title Search
A Land Title Search provides documented evidence concerning the history of a property. The usual areas of interest and importance concern people, land and financial issues.
If you are examining a property with the intention of purchasing it, you will want to know if the seller has a saleable interest (whether he or she is legally able to sell the property!). You will want to know who the previous owners were, and whether there are any restrictions or allowances concerning the land; this could include rights of access over the land, or rights to light, water or structural support.
Finally, you will certainly want to know if there are financial burdens attached to the property, such as mortgages, other charges or back taxes.
