Calgary Real Estate Fees

Questions about Legal Fees for selling or buying a house?

When buying, selling, or refinancing real estate, you will undoubtedly require the services of a real estate lawyer. But how much will it actually cost?

At West Legal, we understand the value in knowing up front what our legal services will cost. In most cases we are able to offer flat rate fees, giving you the peace of mind that the price you’re quoted is what you will pay. No surprises.

Our real estate flat-rate fees include all regular disbursements, including document registration fees at the Land Titles Office (title transfer registration, mortgage registration, mortgage discharge, etc.), local courier charges, photocopy and fax charges, etc. As always, there are no additional fees for signing appointments at a location other than our office.
