Advising Buyers and Sellers on BC Real Estate Matters

With longstanding roots in New Westminster and Surrey, our residential conveyancing lawyers have decades of experience assisting clients in Surrey, New Westminster, Vancouver, Langley, Coquitlam and other municipalities in British Columbia with the purchase, sale, and refinancing of their homes.

Our real estate law team is well versed in both drafting and reviewing purchase and sale agreements, reviewing mortgage documentation, and advising on matters relating to title – including investigation and reporting on covenants, liens, judgments, easements, rights of way, permits, charges and other potential encumbrances or issues that affect buyers and sellers. Our experience translates into peace of mind that your interests will be protected and that you have a complete understanding of your real estate transaction.

Once you decide to proceed with the purchase or sale of property, we take all the necessary steps to project your interests during the conveyancing process. Specifically, we make sure that the proper documents are completed and filed with all the relevant financial institutions as well as the Land Title Office. There can be a lot of paper work involved with buying and selling a home and, depending on your circumstances, it can be a very complex process. At McQuarrie Hunter, our residential conveyancing lawyers and paralegals have the expertise to efficiently guide you through your real estate transaction from start to finish.
