Conveyancing is the process of transferring an interest in property from one party to another. This interest can either be the transfer of title (ownership of property) or a grant of a secured interest in the property, such as a mortgage.

Once subjects of a real estate contract are removed, it becomes a binding contract and is then forwarded to the Notary Public. If the notary office represents purchasers who require financing for their transaction, mortgage instructions are provided to the legal representative as well in order to prepare the requisite documents.

Mortgages and Refinancing

Many prospective homebuyers require a loan to complete their purchase. This loan may be a mortgage or secured line of credit or a combination of both which the granting financial institution or private lender secures against the property at the time of purchase.

Many homeowners may utilize the equity in their homes to secure further funds from a lender. In order to accomplish this task, they may refinance with their existing lender; obtain a larger loan from another and payout their current mortgage; or register a second mortgage or secured line of credit on the property.

When representing borrowers as their legal representative, our notary public office may provide some or all of the following services depending on the specific case:

  • Receive and review mortgage instructions
  • Request and review payout statement from existing lender
  • Prepare necessary mortgage and supporting documents
  • Obtain required strata documents (if applicable), insurance binder and title insurance policy
  • Meet with borrowers to review and execute documents
  • Receive mortgage funds in trust
  • Prepare payout and discharge documents
  • Payout existing mortgage or secured line of credit
  • Register executed mortgage discharge at the appropriate Land Title Office, or follow up to ensure lender has registered the same
  • Provide borrowers with copies of registered documents and State of Title Certificate

Mortgage Discharges

Many homeowners assume once they have fully paid out their mortgage or secured line of credit, their title is free and clear of the charge. However; the title is not clear until the mortgage discharge form provided by the lender is registered at the appropriate Land Title Office. While some lenders attend to the matter directly, others may provide the borrowers with a signed discharge form. Please contact our office if you require assistance with filing your mortgage discharge form at the Land Title Office.

We earn our client's trust

As a real estate agent I have been honoured to work with Nilpar in the past few years. She is very knowledgable, professional and trustworthy. I have worked with many Notaries and Lawyers in the past, but Nilpar is one of those few who takes time to go into details with clients to explaining everything in the simplest manner. I highly recommend her.
