Helping with Big Decisions

Buying or selling a property is a major transaction and it is likely to be one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever agree to. With so much of your money, time, and commitment on the line, you cannot afford to take any risks. Robert Martin and Emma O’Donnell, our two lawyers at Martin & Hillyer who specialize in real estate law, can help you with your real estate transaction needs. Whether you are buying or selling a residential, commercial, or industrial property, our expertise will help ensure the transaction goes through without any unwanted surprises. Contact us today or visit us at our Downtown Burlington offices to find out how our real estate lawyers can be of assistance.


Our real estate law services are wide-ranging and include legal services related to residential, commercial, and industrial real estate transactions. A real estate lawyer can help protect you from being stuck with costly repairs or unpaid property taxes that you may have overlooked while negotiating the purchase agreement yourself. If you are selling a home then you want to be sure that the sale agreement protects you and your finances.

Ideally, you should have a real estate lawyer on your side as soon in the home buying or selling process as possible–that way you stand a better chance of avoiding costly and complicated problems from arising in the future. We can also assist you in the purchase or sale of a resale home or when purchasing a new builder home.

Condominium Transactions

Buying or selling a condominium presents unique challenges. Purchase agreements for condominiums can be long, complicated, and confusing for anybody without the legal training necessary to understand them. When you buy a condo, financial and legal considerations will arise that will typically not be present in other real estate transactions. For example, you will want to know who is responsible for maintenance costs and how your condo fees will be spent. We will go over a condo purchase agreement carefully to make sure you are protected.



In addition to helping with the purchase and sale of residential properties, we can help with commercial and industrial real estate transactions. We can also provide assistance with mortgage remedy work and with negotiating other real estate-related agreements. Our real estate law services are centred on protecting you and your interests. It is important that an agreement be reviewed carefully before you agree to it. We can help you review and negotiate agreements of purchase or sale, which could ultimately help you save money.

Purchasing or selling real estate is such a major transaction, and you will want to do everything you can to avoid unpleasant and potentially costly surprises from arising. Minor details that can easily be overlooked early on could end up costing you thousands of dollars in the future. Our real estate lawyers at Martin & Hillyer in Halton Region will help you during every step of your purchase or sale, providing you with peace of mind and invaluable advice. Contact us today.
