Some FAQs

Do I have to compensate the realtor for their expenses if I break my representation agreement?

Taking enticing photos and placing sales ads are the cost of doing business for real estate agents, the same as for any merchandiser. Your agent is reimbursed when your home sells. When you break your contract early, they either absorb the loss, or bill you for expenses. Look to your representation agreement for who pays these costs if you back out before the contract expires.

Talking to your agent’s broker could give you more options, like having the contract reassigned. Your agent is a salesperson, hired through a brokerage. Their broker supervises and oversees their work, and can often resolve disputes without you having to break a legal contract.

Who's liable if my home gets broken into because it was posted on the MLS?

Thieves can easily target open houses, and putting photos of your home online through the MLS can leave you feeling vulnerable. Fortunately, home insurance policies cover thefts or break-ins of personal possessions like electronics, computers, clothing, and furniture. Expensive items like art, jewellery, or cameras can be covered through separate insurance riders.

Take note, most policies exclude thefts or vandalism that occur if your home is unoccupied for over 60 days. Adding vacant and unoccupied home insurance if you have already moved out, and the home will be empty for more than 30 days can protect you against that. Another good reason to get extra insurance: defending yourself against burst water pipes, or damage from cold or leaks that go unnoticed because no one is home.
Have your realtor keep a guest book of visitors during open houses and impromptu tours. Wireless home security devices also offer cheap protection. Whatever you do, keep bills, credit card statements, investments, cash, and passports locked up or off premises.

Do REALTORS® charge more for their services?

Real estate commissions are negotiable between you and the listing broker or brokerage you are working with. A REALTOR® belongs to the Canadian Real Estate Association, but that doesn’t affect the commission you are charged for selling a home. Like any Ontario real estate agent, REALTORS® can be either a salesperson working for a brokerage, or broker who sells real estate independently and by hiring salespeople.

The seller has a tent for parking vehicles on his lot. Is that legal?

Timmon’s small accessory building bylaw 2016-7898 requires homeowners to get approval before erecting any structure over 108 square feet. Garden sheds, hobby studios, and yes, tents for parking vehicles all qualify. Presumably, he has a permit from the city, but if not, you’ll need one.

Parking vehicles is the only approved use for tents on lots in Timmins. Even then, the seller’s tent must be non-permanent, which means not affixed to a foundation, and easily dismantled or removed. As long as the tent is “commercially prefabricated” (in other hands, not homemade), it can be used for sheltering vehicles in winter.

Check the bylaw to confirm the type of vehicle you want to park is permitted. Aircraft and farm vehicles are in, but human-powered canoes and kayaks aren’t, and neither are mobile homes.
