About Kingston

Canada’s former capital (briefly), the “Limestone City” is nicknamed for its impressive collection of limestone buildings. Both a conservative military stalwart and fun college town with breweries galore, Kingston is the St. Lawrence River’s festival city. The infamous Kingston Penitentiary is long abandoned, but tours or movie shoots are reminders of its past. On an upbeat note, the Queen’s University and Royal Military College of Canada crowd give Kingston a youthful enthusiasm that’s hard to beat.

Some FAQs

It depends on housing demand. Make no mistake, sellers are thrilled to get firm offer real estate agreements. With no conditions or home inspection delays, they can move on quickly. Neglecting to ask can a buyer back out of an accepted offer can cause serious problems for you. Axess Law’s virtual real estate lawyers in Kingston advise against firm offers. We add conditions to your agreement of purchase and sale to give you an escape clause if you change your mind.

Yes, under certain conditions. Deposits are the minimum amount the seller agrees to accept if you back out of the agreement of purchase and sale. It’s non-refundable, unless the contract says otherwise. Most Kingston buyers go through with the sale, but in case yours is unsuccessful, Axess Law includes a clause in your contract allowing the deposit to be returned.

Five per cent of asking price is standard in most markets. If housing prices are hot, the deposit is whatever Kingston home buyers are prepared to offer. Be leery of being too generous. Going high puts you at risk. You could lose the house if your finances fall through, and your full deposit with it. 

Whenever the seller and buyer agree. Your deposit could be herewith, meaning you are including it with the irrevocable agreement of purchase and sale. It could be upon acceptance, in which case the seller receives it within 24 hours, less a minute, of signing your offer. As otherwise provided deposits are payable as agreed in the contract.

No, Ontario realtors need written directions from both buyer and seller to release the deposit. Real estate deposits are held in trust by a realtor or your Axess Law virtual real estate lawyer. Only you can give a realtor or lawyer consent to move your money.
