Contact Morris Notary When Selling Real Estate In Vancouver

October 25, 2017 | Published by

With the price of real estate in Vancouver rising for the tenth month in a row, it may be time to contact your realtor and notary public or lawyer to facilitate the sale of your investment.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver quoted an increase in condo prices by nearly 25% compared to September 2016, and an increase of 1.4% from August 2017. This marks the tenth month that condo prices have increased since 2016.

With rising real estate prices, many homeowners are deciding to contact their notary public or lawyer to arrange a sale of their real estate. You should always use a lawyer or notary public when selling property, ideally involving them in the process as early as possible, in order to protect yourself and your investments.

How Does A Notary Public Or Lawyer Protect My Interests?

A notary public or lawyer will ensure that the purchase, sale and mortgage of a real estate transfer is conducted and registered properly. This process is called “conveyancing” – and your lawyer or notary public is involved to ensure that you receive the money from the sale as quickly as possible and with no issues.

The role of your notary public or lawyer during the conveyancing process includes:

Reviewing the documents provided by the buyer’s lawyer
Ensuring that your mortgage has been properly discharged
Confirming all the payments you are responsible for, have been made
Arranging for you to sign the necessary transfer documents
Preparing a statement to give you the net proceeds of the sale

At Morris Notary, we protect your interests by ensuring that the sale of your real estate goes smoothly, without surprises, and that you are paid the amount that you agreed upon in a timely manner. Don’t sell your property without ensuring a smooth sale – contact your real estate notary for peace of mind, today.
