Some FAQs

Are houses sold by court order a risky investment?

No more than any other residential property, although they can take months to close. Even then, your offer could be overturned by a higher bidder. Buyers who make an offer on a court-ordered sale must endure a long approval window. Because the offer has to be signed off by the court, you could lose the opportunity to offer on other attractive properties while you wait. Add to that the fact the home is “as is”, without benefit of legal recourse if problems are discovered later, and court-ordered sales are mostly for the tenacious.

How will I know if a home is on contaminated soil?

Like any home purchase, the onus is on the buyer to investigate (caveat emptor) before they buy. Unfortunately, a site’s history may not be known to a realtor, and, if they know contamination exists, sellers can be withholding. Axess Law Sarnia can amend your agreement of purchase and sale to include clauses that could prevent nasty surprises. However, only an environmental assessment can determine if soil needs to be replaced. Start by checking local or provincial land registries for records of historic uses or environmental concerns, then hire an expert or find a local lab that does soil sampling.

Are private or "B" lenders reputable?

Most lenders are reputable, but we advise anyone borrowing to buy or refinance Ontario property to do their homework. BBB (Better Business Bureau) websites for a credible source for consumer reviews. “B” lenders include major financial institutions, and work with you if your credit score disqualifies you for the best interest rates. Private lenders offer shorter terms, based on a property’s value and equity. Your credit score is irrelevant to these investors and mortgage investment groups, who want to make a quick profit and exit.

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.
