Some FAQs

You may be assuming appliances come with your new condo or home. Not necessarily so. Chattels, or moveable objects like a fridge, are only included if they’re not explicitly excluded. Put it in writing if you want the stove and fridge to be included, and specify the make and model so high end appliances don’t get swapped out.

If it’s longevity, performance, or aesthetics you crave: 

  • High-end appliances are built to last around 10 years, 20 for luxury models like Miele or Sub-Zero/Wolf. Consumer Reports found even high-end models on a list of worst bets for appliance purchases.  
  • Expensive appliances may deliver better performance. Home chefs get more even heat and features like built-in griddles, or remote auto-cook start. Bosch 800 series uses a HomeConnect app to alert you if the door is open or power goes out. 
  • They do stand out, with their coloured knobs, polished finishes, and size. Realtors can search homes by “high end appliances” if that’s a buyer’s preference.

Next question: are they worth the expense? That depends.

  1. Do you want used or new appliances?
  2. Are user manuals provided, or easy to download?
  3. Is the brand reliable, and does the manufacturer stand behind it?
  4. Can your high end appliance be returned if it’s defective?
  5. Does it have an extended warranty?

You could, if you are or were legally married, making your home (any dwelling you ordinarily occupied as a couple, including boats, RVs, or other) matrimonial property. “Could” because you are free to sell without their consent if your spouse releases their rights in a separation agreement or divorce order.

Regardless of whether your current or former spouse is on title to the property, they have legal rights. A legally married spouse can apply for exclusive possession to live in a matrimonial home after you separate or divorce, and is entitled to a share of the sale proceeds. The exact share depends on if you owned the home before you married, received it through inheritance or as a gift, and how you intermingled your finances. 

Unless they are on the title, common law spouses have no say when you sell the family home. They leave a relationship with what they brought to it, and only share property that is jointly owned.  

Axess Law Huntsville’s virtual family lawyers can answer any questions you have about property division during separation or divorce.

The weather, how well you maintain your home, and quality of a product can decide that. 

Brick costs more than wood, but is better at resisting fire and termites. Heating bills are cheaper, and it’s low maintenance. Wood homes stand up better to erosion, and are cheaper to build, especially if you need to transport building materials. Wood moves when the earth does, absorbs humidity better, and is an effective insulator. That’s not to say they brick and wood don’t have problems. 

Brick can crumble (spall) or develop mould from excessive water, wet soil, or high pressure cleaning. Worn brick destabilizes your home’s structure, requiring minor repairs like adding a breathable sealer, or improving drainage. Neglecting spalling or water intrusion can require bricks and mortar to be replaced. 

On the other hand, chemical treatments to repel pests may cause wood siding to expand, contract, twist, or warp in severe weather. Termite and mould are issues, and wood is less resistant to wildfire damage.

Three to five per cent of the population is believed to have a hoarding disorder. Only a small number live in squalor that attracts pests, is a fire hazard, or could result in them being physically trapped under their own collections.

Tread carefully. Hoarders can be indecisive, distressed by efforts to declutter, and resentful at your intrusion. Evicting any tenant is a tricky proposition. Tenants can stay until the Ontario Landlord and Tenant Board rules on your eviction notice, and that takes time. You could be fined up to $25,000 for violating the Residential Tenancies Act.

That said, you can enter a tenant’s suite if an emergency requires it, they willingly let you in, or you give 24-hours advance notice. Include why you need to enter the suite and when, and serve notice appropriately. Read How to Serve a Landlord or Tenant with Documents

Fire officials can enter unannounced if the risk of fire is an immediate threat to a tenant’s life. See section 15 of the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997.
