Keeping your lawyer happy

Smiling muffin

Smiling muffinMost of what we do in a law office is behind the scenes, so when we ask for certain things, sometimes clients are a bit taken aback (especially as some of it can be a bit personal). Rest assured, we won’t ask for anything we don’t actually need from you.

When you are buying a home, here is what your lawyer will need from you:

  1. Two pieces of ID (one must be government-issued photo, other than a health card)
  2. Agreement of purchase and sale
  3. Letter from your insurance broker confirming  your house insurance will be in place on the closing day

When you are selling your home, here is what we need:

  1. Two pieces of ID (one must be government-issued photo, other than a health card)
  2. Agreement of purchase and sale
  3. Recent tax bill
  4. Recent utility bills
  5. Information on every mortgage or credit line on title (bank and reference number)
  6. Survey of the property

There are of course often other items we need as well, but those are the basics.
