Buying & Selling Property

What You Need to Know before Signing a Purchase Agreement

Associate Katrina R.M. Hanlon details the ins and outs of buying and selling properties in Newfoundland, with particular emphasis on the importance of having a purchase agreement reviewed by a real estate lawyer before signing. Once a purchase agreement is signed, a lawyer can only help you enforce and comply with it, limiting your options whether you’re buying or selling.

Real estate reports and land surveys are also critical tools into knowing as much as you can about a property. Real estate reports can reveal potential encroachment issues that should be addressed and land surveys will help you understand the exact boundaries of any property in the province.
