Real Estate & Property Development
Our firm has a large group of lawyers who focus their practices on development initiatives. We are intimately involved in advising on property development including projects in urban and rural centres, representing parties in all aspects of conveyancing and development and in the financing of real estate transactions. We are also highly knowledgeable and experienced in the field of buying and selling both residential and commercial real estate.
Our real estate lawyers advise on all forms of real property transactions, development and ownership. We provide advice with respect to:
- Purchase and sale
- Leasing, including "life leases"
- Development, including planning, subdivision and zoning
- Ownership structures, including joint ventures, REIT's, limited partnerships
- Financing, including construction and long-term take-out mortgage financing
We work with individuals and families as well as major commercial and residential real estate developers in Winnipeg, rural Manitoba and Ontario. Our clients include Manitoba firms as well as national companies seeking sound real estate and property development advice. We have experience working with national and local financial institutions as well as the Province of Manitoba and many municipalities including the City of Winnipeg.
Our property development and real estate clients benefit from our firm’s ability to offer other areas of expertise such as Tax and Environmental Law. This approach helps us meet our client’s objectives bringing a breadth and depth of experience to every development project.
