Investment Properties And Commercial Transactions

Commercial units, undeveloped sites or vacant land – every purchase of land is different. Owners should be made aware of any bylaws and other restrictions that may affect their ability to purchase or use the property.

At Polak McKay & Hawkshaw, our lawyers are adept at assisting clients throughout Ajax, Ontario and Durham Region in understanding how real estate laws may impact their transaction. We leverage over 65 years of experience to provide you with efficient advice in drafting a fair purchase agreement that suits your needs.

Cottages And Other Recreational Properties

Many clients that decide to invest in a recreational property, such as a cottage, should be made aware of any specialized details specific to their purchase. Our real estate lawyers have extensive experience dealing in cottage purchases, and investigate specific elements such as:

  • Access
  • Road allowances
  • Easements in favour of neighbouring properties
  • Water and septic details

Commercial Units

It's important to understand what rights you have when purchasing a commercial unit. There are limitations on what you may do with the property, including:

  • What you can do inside the property
  • When you can sell the property
  • How to list the property for sale

We appreciate that our clients' focus is on developing their property – which is why our goal is to protect your rights and needs and keep the sale process moving along.

Investment Properties

Other types of properties - such as vacant sites or undeveloped land – may be sold or purchased for either commercial or personal use. At Polak McKay & Hawkshaw, we pride ourselves on making sure that our clients understand the nature of their investment, and how they may use their property.

We will address issues such as:

  • Purchasing the property in the name of a business
  • Other interests affecting the property
  • Easements or encumbrances to the property
  • Land use
  • Tax implications
  • Applicable zoning laws
