What is title insurance?

– Title insurance is a contract to indemnify up to face amount of the policy a purchaser and/or mortgagee of real property in the event that loss arises from one or more specified causes. Title Insurance allows purchasers and lenders to “insure over” selected problems, rather than insisting on a repair of the problem.

Is it correct that commercial real estate transactions require more searches including title search and off-title search than residential real estate transactions?

– Yes. As commercial real estate transactions are more complex than residential real estate transactions, lawyer’s due diligence list of commercial real estate transactions embraces more than that of residential one.

Can I have my document notarized in your office?

– Yes, we are notaries public.

If I want to register an Ontario Corporation, what is the requirements for the directors of Ontario Corporation?

– Directors must be individuals who are at least 18 years of age, sane and not bankrupt.

Is there any restriction on the directors of an Ontario corporation with respect to resident requirement?

– 25% of the directors of a corporation governed by the Ontario Business Corporation Act (OBCA), other than a non-resident corporation, shall be resident Canadians. But where a corporation has less than four directors, at least one director shall be a resident Canadian.

Why do you need a Power of Attorney?

– It is very important for you to sign a Power of Attorney with respect to your personal care and personal property. By signing a power of attorney while capable, the grantor authorizes the attorney he or she appointed to act on behalf of him or her in the event of incapacity or where the grantor, while capable, is simply unavailable when important decisions must be made or actions taken on a timely basis, with respect to his or her personal healthcare and/or property.

Why is it important to have a will?

– In Ontario, if a deceased does not have a will, the deceased have died “intestate”, which means that the deceased left no instructions as to how his or her property is to be divided and distributed. In these circumstances, the Ontario Succession Law Reform Act governs how your property will be distributed to your surviving relatives. Even if a person wants his or her property divided according to provincial law, the person should still have a Will because it will reduce delays and expenses with respect to the division and distribution of his or her property.

What are the formal requirements of a valid will in Ontario?

– In general, for a will to be formally valid it must be signed by the person making it, who is the testator and has testamentary capacity, and two witnesses who are not beneficiaries under the will. This is the typical method for most wills.
