Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, a seasoned investor, or a homeowner looking to sell, our real estate lawyers and conveyancers are here to address your concerns and ensure your interests are protected throughout the journey. Let’s dive in and explore the intricacies of conveyancing in BC together.

What is Conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring property ownership from one party to another. In British Columbia, this process involves several key steps, including:

  • Offer and Acceptance: Once you’ve found the perfect property or buyer, an offer is made and negotiated until both parties reach an agreement.
  • Due Diligence: This phase involves conducting inspections, obtaining financing, and ensuring all legal aspects of the transaction are in order.
  • Preparation of Documents: Various legal documents, such as the Contract of Purchase and Sale, transfer documents, and mortgage documents, are prepared and reviewed by both parties.
  • Closing: On the closing date, all necessary documents are signed, and funds are transferred from the buyer to the seller. The property’s title is then officially transferred.

Why You Need Legal Assistance

While it’s possible to navigate the conveyancing process without legal assistance, doing so can be risky. Property transactions involve complex legal matters and large sums of money, making it crucial to have knowledgeable guidance. By enlisting the help of a knowledgeable legal team, you can:

  • Ensure all legal requirements are met and documents are properly prepared.
  • Avoid costly mistakes or oversights that could jeopardize the transaction.
