Find out how we protect what's important in your life.
Whether you own a house, duplex, condo or cottage – buying or selling real estate is one of the most expensive, stressful undertakings in life. Why go it alone? Let us protect and guide you every step of the way.
We have 30 years of experience and have closed thousands of successful real estate transactions in the Peterborough area and throughout Ontario.
So before you sign on the dotted line to buy that peaceful, lakeside retreat we make sure you understand the implications of filled land, shore road allowances, private rights of way and docking rights.
And when you stand on the crest of that hill envisioning your dream home with sweeping views of the countryside, give us a call to talk to us about things that might interfere with your plans, such as: building restrictions, zoning bylaws, wetland conservation, quarries, well and septic permits.
Then when you finally reach that point in life when you can take it easy and are ready to downsize to that cute little condominium close to the city, you will want to understand how common expenses are calculated, what a reserve fund study is all about and director liability issues.
And for that first time home buyer, we get you. Everything can feel like a blur. Don’t worry – we understand Bankers, Mortgages, Land Transfer Tax exemptions and CMHC insurance and we can make sure you do too.
Moving is tough enough – let us take the worry out of the legal side.
We can help protect your family by ensuring that your legal affairs are organized and coherent. If something terrible happens to you, like death, disability, illness or insolvency, your family won’t face additional stress because you were not prepared.
Estate and Tax Planning, Wills and Powers of Attorney, Trusts and Business Succession Planning are just some of the ways in which Whetung Law helps you make sure that your family is protected.
We understand your special circumstances. Like the client with multiple citizenships; or those who own property outside Ontario. Whetung Law has the expertise to ensure that your affairs are structured to protect those assets, control how your estate is administered and how you are taxed in foreign jurisdictions.
As a Business Owner, you need specialized advice on succession planning to ensure that if something happens to you your business can be operated and managed in your absence. Similarly, Professionals need special provisions to ensure a smooth transition to a successor.
Blended families bring their own unique set of issues and balancing the needs of children from different relationships requires sensitivity and wisdom.
Your family is important. We have seen just about everything and we bring that experience to you.
We love acting for small businesses. As a small business ourselves, we understand that you don’t want to break the bank every time you need legal advice. We have the experience and expertise in corporate and commercial law to manage just about any transaction; large or small.
From establishing your business to implementing a corporate reorganization or tax plan, we have the experience and expertise to ensure that your transaction is completed efficiently and correctly the first time. We are also proactive in our advice and work with your tax advisors to organize your business to manage income and capital gains taxes in a manner which works for you. Coupled with our Will and Estate Planning expertise, we can provide you with advice which ease a transition of you die or become incapacitated.
We also have the experience and expertise to prepare a number of private and commercial documents to make sure that everyone is on the same page. A well-drafted document can save thousands in costs if the agreement falls apart in the future.
And what our business clients really love about us is accessibility. There are times when you just need to reach out and talk to a lawyer about something small – we provide that service to our clients.
