For the most part, provinces in Canada maintain exclusive jurisdiction over the land within their borders and not the Federal Government. As this is so, real estate property laws are unique in each province. The laws may involve different rules and regulations, follow distinct processes and raise special issues and problems for every transaction. That is why an experienced real estate lawyer is one of the most important professionals you will need to work with when buying, selling or refinancing your home.
