This is a new initative launched by the Working Group in March, 2013. It is hoped that any lawyer in
Ontario who practices real estate will participate and encourage those he/she is in contact with to do so.
The Working Group wishes to launch an initiative which could mentor real estate lawyers on best
practices. Because we do not have the resources to individually mentor, the concept is to create survey
questions about various aspects of the work in a real estate transaction and then provide a comment
in response to the survey results. It is hoped that this will generate discussion about the practice,
encourage ideas to be shared and create an atmosphere to suggest best practices to better serve our
clients and possibly create more efficient practice.
The responses are anonymous, except we will ask that you indicate in which County/District you practice
and provide you with the option to more specifically indicate in which city you practice. Otherwise no
one will know who is responding. The Working Group is using the SurveyMonkey survey software for
to respond to the latest survey questions. We will only post
one or two related questions at a time, about once a month, in order to minimize the time to respond
and increase the participation. The greater number of lawyers who participate, the more relevant will
be the information.

It is hoped that this growing list of questions will provide guidance and food for thought to real estate lawyers about various aspects of the transaction.`
