Residential Real Estate Law

Real estate transactions are the biggest—and most daunting—legal arrangements that the average person enters into. And in a fast-expanding city like Edmonton teeming with realtors and new residential properties, the market can be hard to navigate at the best of times.

New and prospective home owners are the heart and soul of our business. In Edmonton’s Ward 12 where we’re located, more than 61 per cent of residents are homeowners, but less than 30 per cent have lived in their home for more than five years. In addition, many of these new homeowners are newcomers, and as such are unfamiliar with Alberta (and Canadian) residential real estate law.

At Ralh Law Office we have an intimate knowledge of the residential real estate environment of the communities we serve and the legal pitfalls that come with the territory. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer, a seasoned investor in residential properties or something in between, we will help you navigate whatever legal needs and challenges you may face.
