Some FAQs

Tread lightly if you make a firm offer vs conditional offer for Ajax real estate. Because a firm offer has no strings attached, it is legally binding as accepted. You lose the buyer’s right to cancel a home inspection clause can give you, and to make amendments to the agreement of purchase and sale.

Your deposit is kept in a trust account and released to the seller when your real estate transaction concludes. Whether you get deposits back if a house sale falls through depends on the agreement of purchase and sale. Even if a seller agrees to return the deposit, you could be pursued for moving or other expenses the seller incurred before you cancelled or sued if a new buyer offers less.

Home inspections find defects that can cost thousands of dollars to repair or cause you to rethink your purchase. Our remote Ajax real estate lawyers recommend a home inspection clause in every agreement of purchase and sale.

Any time is a good time. Watch the Ontario housing market for competitive interest rates and lulls in home buying trends. A hint: real estate sales often slow in winter, when weather affects buyers’ motivation to attend open houses, and pick up in late summer, just before school reopens.

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.

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.
