Real Estate Department

Conveyancing is the process of legally transferring property from one owner to another owner.

When selling your property, we will communicate with the notary or lawyer for your purchaser, review the documents, including the Vendor’s Statement of Adjustments, and prepare the Order to Pay. If you have a charge such as a mortgage or line of credit registered against your title, we will pay out and discharge it from the sale proceeds.

When purchasing a property, we will prepare the documents needed to convey the property to you. In addition, if you are obtaining a mortgage, we will prepare those documents for you and the lender. Also, if you need legal advice and arrangements for estate planning to secure your family’s future and your own, you can rely on us to help.

If you already own property, you might need a lawyer to refinance your current mortgage or obtain a second one. The lender will provide us with the mortgage instructions, and we will prepare the documents and register the new mortgage at the Land Title Office. We will also pay out any debts as instructed.

加拿大技术类申请快速移民通道(Express Entry,简称EE)的难度近期确实有所上升。最近EE的邀请分数一直维持在较高水平,大约在500分左右。这对很多申请人来说确实是一个挑战,特别是那些只有加拿大本科学历的申请人,如果希望通过EE实现移民加拿大的愿望,通常来说需要取得优秀的雅思成绩或者至少积累两年的加拿大工作经验。


关于加拿大的旅游签证,房间有很多不同的说法:访客签证、商务签证、旅游签证、陪读签证、探亲签证等等;稍微正式一点的叫法有加拿大入境签证、临时居民签证、TRV (Temporary Trsident Visa)等等。不管怎样,官方正式的称呼从来都只有一种—Visitor Visa. 按照入境加拿大的目的来说,旅游的临时访客居多,所以就有了“加拿大旅游签证”的说法。


“自雇”的定义是什么? “自雇”是您需要在递交申请的时候向移民局证明自己可以“自给自足”,凭借自己的专业和才能养活自己,不占用加拿大的就业资源;关键点1: 自己养活了自己;2: 可以自由安排自己的时间。 这条移民之路没有资金门槛,移民局也没有对语言水平和年龄作硬性规定,35/100的得分即可,详见下图;申请成功后,枫叶卡可以让申请人在加拿大境内任何地方居住、生活,没有限制。
