The 24 Legal Hours: an innovative tool for real estate brokers

March 21st, 2019 — A brand new service, the 24 Legal Hours, is now provided to real estate brokers who conduct business in the field of co-ownership. Because dealing with the peculiarities of condominiums may at time prove tiresome, consulting with an expert team of lawyers may help bring up practical solutions and strategies.

Relying on the know-how of experienced attorneys and notaries, de Grandpré Joli-Coeur knows better than anyone that a transaction involving a condominium may hide several traps one would be wise to avoid. Considering that in the context of a transaction many prospective buyers and sellers will entrust their needs to a real estate broker, nothing should be left to chance.


Available packages

We offer three different packages, known as Platinum, Gold and Bronze. From the outset, all packages come with an unlimited access to the advice of an attorney or notary (who is guaranteed to call back within 24 hours), and include ongoing legal support as well as a service of reading/analysis of legal documents. Depending on the package purchased, additional services may be provided.

Matters relating to insurance, servitudes, and the declaration of co-ownership cannot be overlooked when it comes to buying or selling a condominium. In addition, one must pay close attention to the terms and conditions of a preliminary contract, to the items included or excluded from the sale, and to the potential impact of any contractor’s bill left unpaid.

Protecting one’s reputation

Let’s face it: a real estate broker cannot avoid discussing such issues with their clients, and they will most likely have to bring them to the attention of prospective sellers and buyers. Without a complete and thorough understanding of the subject matter, a real estate broker may be held liable for damages, which could greatly affect their reputation.

At de Grandpré Joli-Coeur, we have developed so great an expertise in the field of co-ownership that we are able to provide a support service that is both flawless and unrivalled. To know more about all available options, please contact our firm at (514) 736-3418, or visit us on the web at
