*Quoted prices are for legal fees, disbursements and taxes associated therewith only. Quotes and prices stated herein are estimates only and are subject to change. Quotes and prices do not include real estate, brokerage, or credit arrangement fees or commissions, or any other fees not explicitly stated herein. All quotes are for residential resale transactions. Quotes do not include preparation and registration of additional documents, such as a Power of Attorney or a Declaration of Trust.

Mortgage Legal Fee is quoted upon the assumption that the purchaser or refinancer is obtaining a mortgage through an Institutional Lender. The Mortgage Legal Fee for a Non-institutional lender is $495.00. “Institutional lender” means the Royal Bank of Canada, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, the Bank of Nova Scotia, the Toronto-Dominion Bank, or the Bank of Montreal. “Non-institutional lender” means any lender that is not an Institutional Lender. An additional $500.00 fee is applicable to pre-construction closings due to a prolonged solicitor-client engagement and the staged nature of the occupancy and final closing. Upon retaining Lemke Law Professional Corporation an Engagement Letter will be entered between the client and Lemke Law Professional Corporation that will govern the solicitor-client relationship, which shall include fees, disbursements and taxes payable. So far as there is any inconsistency between the prices quoted herein and the said Engagement Letter, the terms of the Engagement Letter will prevail and be applicable.
