About Kanata

Hi-tech Kanata, Ottawa’s westerly suburb, is Canada’s Silicon Valley North. Its National Capital Commission Greenbelt location betrays its past as a model garden city community. With two, 18-hole golf courses on Kanata’s doorstep, sports enthusiasts will welcome the leisure vibe. When not “malling” at the big box Kanata Centrum or following the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre, they can stretch out at the wave pool, tennis courts, or multi-rink Bell Sensplex.

Some FAQs

You can pick any date the seller agrees to. Most agreements of purchase and sale allow 30 days for your real estate lawyer to complete the sale. But completion dates of 60 to 90 days or more are possible. Anything under 30 days will be tight if your purchase hinges on a satisfactory home inspection or mortgage financing

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. Provided the seller agrees, you can propose an amendment to agreement of purchase and sale terms, but be sure it is in writing. Axess Law Kanata virtual real estate lawyers review your draft or accepted agreement of purchase and sale to protect your legal and financial interests.

Mortgage lending rules have tightened up because of the pandemic and worries about high debt by Canadian homeowners. You can still get deals from lenders like Sagen™ or Canada Guaranty with 5% to 19.99% down, but conventional lenders require 20% down for anything other than a high ratio, insured mortgage. 

Sure. You have options for principal residences:

  • CMHC First-Time Home Buyer Incentive for down payments — apply through mortgage brokers or lenders
  • Ontario Priorities Housing Initiative — down payment assistance for low- to moderate-income renters who want to buy 
  • for-profit and nonprofit corporations — for example, ARCH Canada Holdings Inc. 

Axess Law Kanata can notarize First-Time Home Buyer Incentive documents for you.

Mortgage terms and conditions vary, so check your current offer or ask your lender for a copy if you’ve misplaced it. Generally, borrowers pay three months interest or an interest rate differential to break mortgage contracts or transfer loans to another lender before the term is over. Open mortgages are an exception and have no prepayment penalties.
