You’ve met with the bank or broker to arrange a new mortgage, what happens at the Lawyer’s office?

  1. The bank provides our office with mortgage instructions to prepare the mortgage that you have arranged.
  2. We then open a file and conduct all the required tax and title related searches.
  3. You are contacted by one of the legal assistants to obtain specific information based on the transaction.
  4. The documents are prepared for signing and an appointment is arranged for you to meet with the lawyer (the appointment is about ½ hour in length).
  5. After the documents are signed arrangements are made with the bank for funding the mortgage.
  6. The new mortgage is registered at the Land Titles Office.
  7. The mortgage funds are received and disbursed according to the specific transaction.
  8. A formal report is prepared by our office for both you and the bank.
