Whether purchasing, selling, refinancing, or developing commercial or residential real estate (including vacant land, rural, and urban properties), our Ottawa real estate lawyers are ready, willing and able to assess your real estate needs. We have acted for clients who have bought or sold a variety of property types, including detached homes, condominiums, townhouses, cottages, co-ops, mobile homes, and multi-unit properties (e.g. duplex/triplex). On the commercial side, we have acted on transactions dealing with office buildings, strip malls, commercial condominiums, and industrial properties. We have also acted for many clients who have purchased new builder homes. Our team of knowledgeable professionals and administrative staff ensure that your experience is seamless and clear, as we explain and advise our clients through every step of the real estate process.

Bridge financing

If you are buying and selling a home at the same time, you may be obtaining bridge financing to facilitate your purchase before the sale closing date. Our team has extensive experience dealing with bridge loans from many different lenders.

Agreement and status certificate review

If your agreement of purchase and sale is conditional on lawyer review, one of our lawyers would be happy to review your agreement if requested. Likewise, we can also review your status certificate for a condominium purchase.

Private agreements

We also welcome clients who are buying or selling privately, and can assist in drafting a private offer. Buying or selling privately requires extra care that Adam Miller Kelly can provide. We will ensure your legal rights are protected by including the appropriate clauses in your private agreement.

Out of town buyers and sellers

We can also assist out of town buyers or sellers who are buying or selling property in Ottawa. We will coordinate your transaction with you and a lawyer located in your city to witness the signing of your documents and verifying your identification.
