Finding The Best Calgary Real Estate Lawyer For You
Not every law firm is the same. The Calgary real estate lawyers, or real estate attorneys, at Kahane Law Office prioritizes the importance of delivering timely and effective results to fulfill our clients’ needs. We know that buying or selling your home is an exciting yet stressful event. It may also be one of the biggest financial investments you ever make. Our friendly team of experienced lawyers and paralegals are here when you need us. We also assist in various real estate areas including leasing, developing and financing commercial real estate.
Picking Your Calgary Real Estate Lawyer
When choosing who to represent you in a real estate transaction, you should focus on several things. For example, the most important include:
Flat Rate Real Estate Legal Fees
Our clients tell us that cost and value are important. At Kahane Law Office, we believe in transparency. For most of our residential real estate transactions, we offer flat rate fees. You know your final invoice (including disbursements) in advance of retaining us. This means if we are not efficient, we cannot just add extra courier, or other costs to your bill. Our fees are neither the highest nor lowest in Calgary. We sit about the middle – cost wise. The value our Calgary real estate lawyers give is exceptions service. Feedback of multiple Calgary real estate law firm clients have established Kahane Law as Top Real Estate Law Firm In Calgary for six consecutive years. That is value! Please see our flat rate fees for details.
A Lawyer Who’s Practice Focuses On Real Estate Law
When hiring Calgary real Estate Lawyers to assist you with your transaction, real estate law should be a chief focus in their practice. You may not wish to hire a lawyer who dabbles in a wide range of practice areas. While routine functions usually do not pose a challenge, with volume comes experience. The more situations a lawyer encounters, the more “tools” she or he will have in their tool chest to help you with your real estate legal needs.
Our real estate group focuses primarily on residential and commercial real estate. In fact, real estate has been the main focus of Kahane Law Office since its inception over a decade ago.
Personality And Trust In Your Lawyer
Many Calgary Real Estate Lawyers offer legal services to clients. Pick a lawyer who puts you at ease and is accessible in case you have any questions or need to resolve issues throughout the transaction. A law firm that turns over a high volume of real estate deals may employ a large number of legal assistants and paralegals. Consequently, a legal professional is there for you when you need them. Kahane Law offers Calgary’s only after hours hotline for realtors and mortgage professionals so that legal help is only a call away, even after most offices are closed.
Our lawyers prioritize integrity and transparency. The long-term relationships we have cultivated with our clients are based on a foundation of trust, collegiality and a deep understanding of the complexities of Alberta’s real estate sector. Our team of honest, competent lawyers pride themselves in always acting in your best interest.
Calgary Real Estate Law Firm’s Resources
An often overlooked aspect of picking Calgary real estate lawyers is looking at the firm itself. A single lawyer firm offers a different service than a firm with multiple lawyers. For example, we encourage people to consider the following:
Advantage of multiple real estate lawyers
There are several advantages to picking a firm that has more than one real estate lawyer. For example, if your lawyer takes a vacation or is sick, then who is acting on your behalf? With firms with “back up” real estate lawyers, you enjoy the benefit of another lawyer stepping in when needed. Further, and this is more a matter of convenience, multiple lawyers generally have more options available in terms of time to sign. If you need to sign at 2 pm, and one lawyer is booked, then another steps in to meet with you.
Advantage of multiple areas of law
Next, with multiple areas of law comes more breadth to the firm. For example, if an issue comes up in a real estate closing, a firm with litigation lawyers then has that resource available to you. At Kahane Law Office, quick questions as to litigation options or potential outcomes usually come at no extra cost to our clients.
