Real Estate, Development and Financing

The lawyers in Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP’s real estate and development group are leaders in the acquisition, financing, development and sale of real estate interests. Their practice extends to all sectors of Ottawa’s real estate market and to projects throughout the province including Toronto. These lawyers, their assistants and our real estate law clerks offer the firm’s clients significant depth of experience in all matters related to real estate, supported by a strong team approach to client service. We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experience with each other and with our clients and contacts. This approach forms the basis of our growing reputation as the first choice for important transactions, developments and real estate issues.

We also have an experienced commercial leasing team that assists both landlords and tenants in multi-tenant, mixed use office, retail and industrial buildings in the Ottawa area and Eastern Ontario.

Extensive experience in condominiums has enabled our real estate group to gain significant expertise in all matters related to new condominium development, existing condominiums, new conversions, and other forms of multiple unit housing, including mixed use residential and commercial developments.

Through our local network we maintain strong alliances with other members of the local real estate bar and with service providers to the development industry. These contacts have been invaluable to us and have grown to include well established relationships with institutional and private lenders, urban planners, appraisers, engineering and architectural consultants, surveyors, insurers, and real estate brokers and agents.

Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP is a member in good standing with the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association, BOMA and the Canadian Condominium Institute.
