Brosgall Legal has been getting a lot of requests lately from clients who are buying or selling US property from Canada. Of course, people cannot travel to the USA during this pandemic, and it is extremely difficult dealing with the US Consluate in Vancouver. But rest assured, our firm can accomplish everything you need within about 7 days - with convenience, efficiency, and expertise.
Typically, our clients have been told by their escrow company to get their Grant Deed notarized and Apostilled. The Canadian equivalent of an Apostille is a three-step procedure of 'notarizing', 'authenticating', and 'legalizing' the Deed. Only then can a document from Vancouver, BC can be sent to the escrow company in the USA. This process applies to important documents such as powers of attorney, real estate transfers, and various other legal papers. Brosgall Legal | Apostille Services can assist. If you have any questions, or want to book an appointment, please send us an email or call us at 604-685-2326. Our home page provides further information.
BOOK A VANCOUVER APOSTILLE APPOINTMENT
If you need to do a US notarization, authentication and legalization (Apostille), Brosgall Legal can help - this is our niche, and you'll deal directly with us. You can either visit to our office (with Covid protocols in place), or in many cases, the procedure can be done via Zoom. After that, we do everything on your behalf. Simply put - we have solutions!
CANADIAN AUTHENTICATION + LEGALIZATION = USA APOSTILLE
The process for validating Grant Deeds for use in the United States is quite complicated. As Apostille certificates are not issued in Canada, Grant Deeds must be notarized by us, authenticated by the appropriate British Columbia or Canadian government authority, and then legalized by the US Consulate in Vancouver, BC. This process can be quite difficult and inconvenient for private individuals - which is where Brosgall Legal comes in. We work on your behalf to authenticate and legalize (Apostille) your American property documentation.
