At Davidzon Law we understand the complexity of commercial real estate transactions and never treat any deal as “routine”. We always advise our clients looking to purchase a commercial property to consult with us prior to negotiating any deal so that we may undertake a preliminary search of title to understand what type of encumbrances may be registered on title to the property. With this information our clients are in a better position to negotiate a deal in which they purchase a property with clear and marketable title.
Our title review includes reviewing all instruments registered on title to the subject property or affecting title to the property. We regularly review encumbrances such as:
We will always review available surveys of the property and point out any concerns to our clients.
We will also review title to all adjacent properties to ensure that there are no issues or contraventions of the Ontario’s Planning Act which might come back to haunt our clients in the future. We will prepare a summary report of our findings for our clients and have a discussion with them so they understand how title to the property is affected by its registered encumbrances and how that may affect them as potential registered owners.
Further to our title searches, we conduct an exhaustive off-title search. Our off-title searches include inquiries with:
We will always summarize the results of our inquiries and explain the findings to our clients so they understand how the subject property may be affected.
In situations where our clients are purchasing a commercial real estate property from a corporate vendor (which is normally the case) we will perform searches against the corporation which include:
We have acted for many clients purchasing residential multiplexes, apartments, commercial plazas, and commercial office buildings. The common denominator in all these situations are that the properties are tenanted. In these situations we undertake thorough due diligence of all leases. We will review all current leases and summarize key terms to our clients in an easy-to-understand manner. We will prepare estoppel certificates to be executed by tenants to protect our clients’ interests. In the event that our clients are required to execute non-disturbance agreements with tenants we will review and negotiate these agreements to protect our clients’ interests.
