Some FAQs

Are bully offers common?

In competitive markets they can be. Realtors are required to give sellers offers in order they are received. When a bidder submits a pre-emptive offer well before the scheduled offer time, the realtor is obligated to present it. Sellers can accept it ahead of other offers, or wait to see what other bids they receive. The realtor must wait for the seller’s written instructions (if they will accept or wait), and notify other bidders of the bully offer.

Are counter offers legally binding?

Only if the buyer or seller accepts it. Counter offers replace previous offers, and are not legally binding until signed. Things to watch for: Does the counter offer include deal breakers, such as removing a home inspection condition? Is the proposed price over your pre-approved mortgage amount? Do you feel pressured to make a quick decision, without time to get legal or financial advice? Take a step back when you are uncomfortable with a counter offer a seller or buyer has made.

Do I need a property survey to buy a home?

Not necessarily, although you take the risk the property you are buying is encroaching on a neighbouring lot. Since a survey is not part of the closing transaction, ask the seller’s agent if one is available. If not, and you have concerns about a fence, garage or how big the lot actually is, make it a condition in the agreement of purchase and sale.

Are biweekly payments better than monthly?

We can’t tell you what’s best for your situation, but a biweekly schedule saves money by putting extra money towards your principal. Instead of making 12 monthly payments a year, you make 26 biweekly payments, which works out to one extra payment a year on the principal. You pay down your mortgage quicker (for example, 24 years instead of 30) and co-ordinate payments with your pay cheque.

Can I make an appointment on a Sunday?

We make appointments that fit your schedule and your lifestyle. You can drop into an open law office on Sundays or meet online or in person, whenever or wherever works best for you.

Can I pay by credit card?

Of course! We take VISA, Mastercard, or AMEX and email receipts for your financial records. Pay by phone or online.
