Purchase and Sale of Commerical Real Estate Property in Toronto - Howard NightingaleReal Estate is one of those familiar terms that has a much greater complexity than people might realize. Yes, it refers to land property, but it’s also much more than that. It derives from English common law, called real property, and it not only includes land but the air above it, the ground beneath it, the structures on it (including but not limited to buildings) and even to improvements made to the real estate.

A code of law and developed practices is essential to promote investment in a country’s land, and in turn, real property, or real estate, generates a considerable portion of the wealth of nations such as Canada. Even people who don’t regularly engage in commerce or business investments are likely to own real estate such as income generating properties. It is on the basis of its overall significance to clients that Real Estate is one of the four branches of Howard Nightingale Professional Corporation.

Howard Nightingale provides a range of commercial services to Toronto and all of Ontario, including:
