What is registered on title?
Are you saying you owned the company that has had its name changed twice?
Unfortunately though the issue does have to be corrected or the property will not be able to be transferred and then the buyer will sue the not-for-profit corporation.
What you should do is speak to the registrar at the land registry office and ask what they need.
Unfortunately, it is likely that they will say you need a court order.
If that is the case then ask the lawyer who is doing your closing to recommend a lawyer that can act as your coach. The lawyer who is doing the closing may not understand how to get a court order.
Then you can retain this second lawyer on what is called a limited retainer. This is a legitimate way to work with a lawyer in Ontario. The lawyer will consider the facts and tell you what to do but you will do it. So you will go to court without the lawyer and that way the legal fees will be kept to a minimum.
