These fees will always be disclosed to you in advance..

OUR FEES ON COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS
We typically offer our clients the alternative of either an hourly or a fixed-priced fee arrangement. As a mobile law office, we are readily available to meet at your convenience to discuss your particular needs. Put an end to big-firm gouging.
LAND TRANSFER TAX
A significant consideration in most real estate purchases is the transfer tax paid to the government. This tax is calculated using a formula which lends itself best to being expressed in a table. Please contact us and we can provide you with a copy of the Land Transfer Tax Table which we have prepared, or advise us as to the fair market value of the property and we can perform the calculation for you.
UTILITIES & MAIL
Whether you are buying or selling, it is wise to provide you utility companies with meter readings on closing. Manitoba Hydro can be contacted at 204.453-6712 and Winnipeg Water & Waste at 204.986-3212. You may want to consider forwarding your mail, which can be done using www.canadapost.ca

QUESTIONS TO ASK IN SELECTING A LAWYER:
Is your lawyer your primary point-of-contact, or will you be delegated to an assistant? Is your lawyer focused on real estate law, or trying to do a bit of everything? Will your lawyer present all options to save you money, or just do whatever is most expedient? Is your lawyer with you every step of the way, or will you be up-charged for reviewing the offer? for post-closing issues? (even for photocopies and faxes?) Will you (and your spouse) have to book time off work to travel to your lawyer’s office, or will your lawyer come to you? Is your lawyer up-to-date in the emerging issues affecting real estate law? Do you understand all the intricacies of your real estate transaction, or would you like your lawyer to be available to answer your questions as they arise? Will your lawyer back you up if there are any post-closing difficulties, or should you expect a supplemental bill?
