Buy a home or recreational property with confidence.

The first time that you purchase a home may also be the first time that you contact a lawyer. It’s an important time in your life and our Real Estate team can help. We can explain the process, answer any questions you may have, and address your concerns. Many South Delta home buyers have liked our service so much, they’ve become long-term clients!

Even if you’re an old hand at buying and selling, it’s good to know that we’re on top of your deal to ensure that there are no surprises. It’s also nice to know that if the unforeseen happens and something should go wrong, you have an experienced legal team on your side.

We’re experienced and cost-effective.

Our flat fees are competitive with notaries and other law firms in South Delta for most residential conveyancing services. We offer the added bonus of being able to help you quickly solve any legal issues that might arise, ensuring that your deal comes together smoothly and that your rights are protected. With more than 30 years experience in preparing and processing real estate documents, we can easily spot problems, offer solutions and speed transactions through the system.

Our commercial experience lets you sign with certainty.

At Severide Law, we have expertise in both Business and Real Estate Law to help guide you through all aspects of commercial property transactions. Our team excels at risk management and we can help you avoid unpleasant surprises that can cost you money down the road.

We believe that one of the jobs of a good lawyer is spotting issues and red flags. That’s why our due diligence is second to none.

However, should your deal reach an impasse or collapse, our team is skilled at overcoming problems and reaching favorable resolutions while preserving your business relationships for the future.
