About Guelph

Guelph is one of Canada’s safest cities. Part of Ontario’s “technology triangle” of high-tech workers, the community sits above the Speed and Eramosa rivers, an hour west of Toronto. Glimpses of its small town roots can be seen in the surrounding farms, Honeybee Research Centre and agricultural-veterinary colleges at the University of Guelph. Affordable and liveable, the slower pace makes Guelph a good place to raise a family. The Guelph Jazz Festival is still going strong after over 20 years and Hillside Summer Festival is a treat for Ontarians of all ages.

Some FAQs

During the irrevocable period and once accepted, yes. Provided the seller agrees, you can propose changes, but be sure they are in writing. Buyers and sellers can mutually agree to abandon a sale, and you can include “subject-to” conditions that may allow you to cancel a sale. Axess Law’s real estate lawyers review draft and accepted contracts to advise you on how to protect your legal and financial interests.
Your deposit is kept in a trust account and released to the seller when your real estate transaction concludes. Who gets the deposit when a buyer backs out 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. We highly recommend a home inspection clause in every agreement of purchase and sale.
Any time is a good time. Watch local markets for competitive interest rates and lulls in buying trends. A hint: sales often slow in winter, when weather affects buyers’ motivation to attend open houses, and pick up in late summer, just before school reopens.

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.

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.

Building a new home? We have real estate lawyers nearby who can check pre-construction purchase contracts or assignments for sale for legal issues you may encounter.
