Avoid delays with your construction mortgages by working with us. Our construction financing and mortgage lawyers help with all aspects of construction mortgages, from creating the mortgage documents to financing the last draw.
Our mobile home lawyers represent people buying and selling mobile homes. Sometimes, the home sits on titled property and, other times, the home is on a rented pad. We also help current owners refinance their existing mobile home, and we assist with mobile home lease reviews and drafting. If you own a mobile home park, our experience extends legal issues specific to an owner.
We help both borrowers and lenders with mortgage financing. A mortgage refinance is when a person replaces existing financing on their home or, if no mortgage sits on title, places a new mortgage to access equity in their home. The Kahane Law team regularly assists clients with both commercial and residential mortgages. Read more about mortgage refinancing here.
Rental Properties For Landlords & Tenants
In addition to the usual factors involved with buying or selling a residential home, rental properties often involve many different types of legal issues. Hit the link to read more about the purchase or sale of residential rental properties in Alberta.
Bridge / Interim Financing
An important part of Edmonton real estate law when buying and selling a home. Also called interim financing or a bridge loan, bridge financing represents equity in a client’s existing home – which can then help buy a home before the existing home sale is completed. When the existing home is sold, the proceeds from the sale pay off the bridge loan. Kahane Law real estate lawyers routinely help clients with bridge financing.
Private Financial Lending
We act for borrowers and lenders, but never for both in the same transaction. Private lending means borrowing funds, in this case secured against real estate, where the funding comes from a company or private individual. If you’re a borrower who needs independent legal advice in a private lending situation, we can help.
Real Estate Law Litigation
Should any problems come up during or after the completion of your real estate transaction, including breaches of the real estate contract, our real estate law firm’s litigation department is knowledgeable and skilled in real estate law litigation. Our lawyers also can handle foreclosure actions. In these situations, we can act for a borrower or a lender.
Transactions Occurring Out Of Town
If you’re buying or selling a home outside of Alberta or Canada, the Edmonton real estate law team at Kahane Law Office provides notary services. We can also prepare documents for clients who are buying or selling property in Alberta but are currently out of the province or country. Because we are real estate law professionals in Alberta, we are not permitted to give legal advice about other provinces or countries. Lastly, as an Acceptance Agent for the IRS, we can even help you receive an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) for the US.
Management Companies & Condominium Boards
Lastly, Kahane Law is a full-service firm and, as such, we can meet all your management company’s, or condominium board’s, legal needs. Our condominium lawyers understand – and can help with – all aspects of real estate law, as it relates to condos. If you are a condo owner and have a legal dispute with your condo board, we can represent you. Read more about our condominium-specific legal issues here.
