Real Estate Law
Bedford Law’s lawyers are experienced in all matters relating to real estate law. Our clients are involved in the purchase and sale of real estate, mortgages, and in the acquisition, development, and construction of commercial and residential projects.
Bedford Law lawyers regularly handle mortgage transactions on behalf of banks and their clients. Title migration is required prior to the sale or mortgage of real property in Nova Scotia. We are certified to migrate title to property under the Land Registration Act.
We provide services and advice regarding:

Bedford Law has had the opportunity to work with all groups involved in the real estate industry including:
- Buyers & sellers
- Construction companies and builders
- Landlords and tenants of shopping centres and office buildings
- Institutional and private lenders
- Real estate agents
In the event our clients are working with a realtor, we are able to work in conjunction with the realtor to help bring the property transaction to successful completion. We can assist the clients and their realtor with wording and negotiation of counter-offers, amendments and agreements. We deal with issues such as right-of-way agreements for access, shared well agreements, and creation of easements to name a few.
Bedford Law lawyers negotiate and draft agreements of purchase and sale when clients are not working with a real estate agent or are buying a property that is “for sale by owner”. We provide advice to clients regarding the important issues and products that they need to consider, such as:
- Location certificates
- Land Surveys
- Property Insurance
- Title Insurance
We are able to make arrangements for the above products on behalf of the our clients which saves them valuable time by centralizing the process.
Bedford Law’s property lawyers conduct seminars in connection with Realtors and lenders to educate the consumer about real estate transactions; particularly the first time buyer. We encourage Realtors to contact us if they require our services for seminars or training.
The role of the real estate lawyer is crucial, and one in which the real estate practitioners at Bedford Law have many years of experience.
