TIPS – Can a Lawyer Act on Both Sides of a Transaction?

Prior to March 31, 2008, a lawyer was permitted to act for both buyer and seller when transferring property. Now, two lawyers are required for the transfer of title, one lawyer for the buyer and one lawyer for the seller. Two lawyers in the same law firm may act on either side, so long as they observe the general rules regarding conflict of interest. A sole practitioner cannot act on both sides. There are limited circumstances where a sole practitioner can act on both sides, for example, if it is a deed to effect severance, a deed from an estate to a beneficiary, or if the persons are related e.g. parent to child, husband to wife, etc.
