Details on Eligible Transfers

The party initiating the transfer does not have to be a Scotiabank customer, but must be a lawyer or a representative from a lawyer/law firm's office and be depositing to a Scotiabank Lawyer's Trust Account . Only certified items (i.e. certified cheques drawn on a lawyer's account or bank drafts) will be accepted for this method of transfer.
