When you are selling your home, you have many things to think about. Depending on your phase in life, you may be going to a more substantial residence, downsizing or getting out of the market altogether. Regardless of what your specific intentions are, you will have many legal responsibilities that accompany your agreement to sell your house in British Columbia.
Often, the counsel for your home’s buyer will prepare the legal documents you must review and sign for the sale to complete. Laughlin & Company Lawyers Mediators in Port Coquitlam can provide you with an independent review of those documents, so you are legally protected and know the transaction is consistent with your best interests.
