Residential Real Estate

For most of us, buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions that we will make. Once that decision is made, we will need an experienced law firm to handle the legal aspects of our transaction, whether it is buying or selling, to ensure that all the details surrounding the transfer are taken care of seamlessly. Magellan Real Estate Lawyers is that experienced law firm.

Commercial Real Estate

Don and the team at Magellan Real Estate Lawyers has extensive experience in commercial real estate; whether it is conveying stand-alone buildings or strata properties.

Real Estate Financing

Don and team have worked with all the major banks, credit unions, trust companies and private lenders in preparing the mortgage documentation that is required to complete residential purchases and refinances.

We also advise commercial borrowers with respect to lending documentation that they are being asked to sign in order to secure their commercial loans.

Estate Administration

Navigating the Court Registry requirements associated with obtaining a Grant for the administration of an estate can be very confusing and time consuming.  Let Magellan Real Estate Lawyers assist you with this frustrating exercise.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is an important consideration for all of us. This includes planning for incapacity as well as preparing a final Will.

At Magellan Real Estate Lawyers, we will advise and assist with respect to the preparation of your enduring Power of Attorney in order to reduce the problems associated with incapacity.

We are also experienced in drafting your final Will so that your children will have the guardians you have chosen, and your assets go where you want them to go and not where a government statute says they will go.
