RE lawyer for an out-of-province transaction
Does it work? Can you hire an ON lawyer for a NS home purchase? TIA.

I believe a lawyer needs to pass the bar in whatever jurisdiction they want to work in. They also would need to know all the rules and regulations about performing the transactions required, so you'd likely spend a lot more money if your lawyer had to waste time (or have one of their paralegals waste time) learning another provinces laws and processes on your behalf. Just hire a local lawyer to get the job done. It's more important that they're close to the transaction than close to you.

You can, but you shouldn't.
