Some FAQs

You can, but you have to follow Tarion’s new home warranty procedures. The builder can extend the completion date twice by notifying you in writing. If they exhaust both 120-day extensions and the delay is onerous, you can try to cancel. Check with Axess Law Durham first. Deadlines apply and actions you take may unwittingly reset the clock.
It all depends when you borrow. If your current interest rate is low and rates have since gone up, you might get a better rate “blending and extending” your existing mortgage. If rates have declined, your credit score is good, and debts are manageable, a new mortgage could be cheaper. Ask a mortgage broker to check rates for you.
That could be a red flag condo owners aren’t maintaining the building by planning for major repairs or capital expenses. The Condominium Act (1998) requires a comprehensive reserve fund study within a year of registration. Condominium corporations have to update the study at least every three years, with either a site visit or by reviewing the reserve fund’s adequacy.
You no doubt have an interim occupancy agreement. The builder has finished your unit, but is still working on some units and common spaces. Until the building is complete, it can’t be registered as a condo and the developer can’t transfer title to you. You can still live in your unit. You just can’t own it. Once the condo is registered, you’ll be the legal owner and the mortgage payments will kick in.
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.

Having your agreement of purchase and sale reviewed by Axess Law’s virtual real estate lawyers or in person ensures you make an informed decision. We explain all the details before you make legal commitments and point out terms and conditions you may want to alter.

Our real estate lawyers go over condo status certificates for details your realtor skipped over, like whether the reserve fund for major repairs is adequate or if the condo corporation has legal problems.
