Some FAQs

Do I need a building permit to add a deck to a home I buy?

Grand Bend allows roofless decks less than two feet high to be built without a permit. Otherwise, building permits are required any time you construct, add on to, move, or remove a structure on your property that’s 10 m2 (108 square feet) or more in size. Likewise, a permit is needed to demolish structures. Other zoning bylaws, laws, or regulations may also apply, so you are best to check before you start any project.

Does a seller have to reveal development plans that might affect their home?

Signing away your right to have condominium corporation status certificate reviewed leaves you without potential legal recourse if you find defects after the closing date. Your Axess Law real estate lawyer in Ingersoll reviews your agreement of purchase and sale and advises if clauses you signed ought to be withdrawn. We negotiate with the seller’s lawyer to amend the agreement to preserve your right to have a condo inspected by a professional, and to ensure the status certificate is reviewed before you close the sale.

Is it legal to require a townhouse buyer to pay for roads?

It is if you buy a freehold home in a development with a tied parcel of land. Common elements attached to tied parcels of land are treated the same in Ontario real estate law as for traditional condos. The common element condominium corporation (CECC) the developer creates to fund and build roads in your subdivision is usually contained in a schedule to your agreement of purchase and sale, or a separate agreement altogether.

What's the difference between a semi-detached and townhome?

Semi-detached homes are often freehold properties, where you pay upkeep and property taxes on your own unit, just like you would for a single family home. They can be joined to one home or, in the case of rowhouses, several. Townhomes are usually condominiums, where buyers own their unit plus a share of common elements like parking, balconies, or amenities. Unlike freehold owners, condo owners pay monthly fees to maintain common elements.

Is there a cooling-off period when you buy a home?

Other than for new condos purchased from builders or developers, generally not. New condo buyers can withdraw their offer within 10 calendar days of receiving the agreement of purchase and disclosure statement. Ask Axess Law to review your contract to see if it has a cooling-off clause.

Are closing costs negotiable?

You might negotiate a flat rate fee with your lawyer — Axess Law’s fees are all flat rates — but otherwise, no. Closing costs are fixed fees that add as much as about 5% to the cost of a home. They include land transfer taxes, plus Toronto’s municipal land transfer tax, title and fire insurance, and registering title to your property. Legal fees and your share of property taxes and utilities are included. For high-ratio mortgages with less than 20% down, mortgage default insurance is added to your costs. HST of 13%, minus any rebates you qualify for, is due for new or substantially renovated homes. As the closing day draws near, your Axess Law lawyer will contact you to finalize the amount you need to bring to our office to conclude your home purchase.
