Come to Johnston Ming Manning LLP for all your real estate services. Whether you're selling, buying, building, or leasing, our lawyers are experienced and able.

Buying and Selling Real Estate

Whether you are buying or selling residential, commercial, industrial or agricultural real estate, we can help. Let us advise you on the terms of the Offer to Purchase and Agreement to Sell, do appropriate searches to find out what encumbrances may be on the property, advise you on zoning and other land use issues, determine whether G.S.T. applies to your transaction, assist you with the special requirements of transferring a condominium unit, prepare and register mortgage and transfer documents, and of course, receive and disburse money as necessary to ensure that the property is transferred clear of encumbrances. In our experience, it is best to seek legal advice before you sign an Offer or an Agreement, even for a transaction that seems to be straightforward. Our experienced real estate lawyers will listen and respond to your needs.

Condominium Plans and Land Development

Our real estate lawyers have extensive experience assisting land developers with a range of issues, including obtaining development approval, the preparation and registration of subdivision and condominium plans, negotiating sales agreements with builders, and the transfer of land and receipt and disbursement of proceeds upon the sale of lots. Call us to discuss how we might assist you in your commercial land development projects.


Johnston Ming Manning LLP has extensive experience acting for both landlords and tenants of residential and commercial real estate. We can assist you in drafting and negotiating the terms of your lease, reviewing an existing lease, and preparing renewal, amending or termination of lease agreements. For landlords or tenants of residential property, we will advise you as to your rights and obligations under the Residential Tenancy Act, and represent your interests in any landlord and tenant dispute.
