Most people don’t know what it is that a Vancouver Real Estate Lawyer does, so we decided to create this page to explain!

Some of the most common things a Vancouver real estate lawyer can help you with are:

General Understanding Of How Real Estate Lawyers Work
Most lawyers in Vancouver change an hourly rate. It varies depending on how much experience the firm has, and how expensive their office is. Normally these feees vary from $250-500/hour. Real estate law is often much less expensive than other areas of law. But you can still expect to spend at least $1000 on a real estate lawyer. If it’s a complicated real estate matter, it might be much more.
Most real estate lawyers charge similar rates. What is more important than price is “how long will it take to complete the real estate closing?”
How Long Does It Take To Do A Real Estate Closing?
You should reach out to a lawyer once you have a signed agreement with the seller or buyer. You should have agreed on all conditions, the price, and the closing date. Normally it takes around five weeks to do a real estate closing. When the deal is waiting to close, it’s called being in escrow.
During the entire process, the real estate lawyer is doing some of the following:
- Talking with the sellers mortgage company
- Making sure all the numbers make sense
- Figuring out the mortgage payout amount
- Speaking with the new mortgage company
- Dealing with the property taxes
- Checking the ownership of the property (title) to make sure nothing is wrong
- Getting the loan documents ready
- Checking the appraisal
- Checking to make sure there are no unpaid mortgages
- Making sure there are no tax liens on the property
- Dealing with title insurance (if applicable)
- Making sure the Realtors get paid
- Transfering the title over
- Checking the survey of the property lines (if applicable)

Real Estate Law
Most of the time a real estate agent or Realtor tells their client to find a real estate lawyer once a purchase agreement has been signed.

For example, Karen Bresler only does family law and real estate law.
