The short commute makes London popular with Greater Toronto Area professionals and day trippers. For skiing, snowboarding or zip lining, Boler Mountain is a 365-day adventure. Weekends are good times for cruising the nightclub scene or taking in the Secrets of Radar Museum or Canadian Medical Hall of Fame with the kids. After work, hit the 330 kilometres of cycling and walking trails for exercise and relaxation. Play your own way in London.

Some FAQs

In competitive markets they can be. Realtors are required to give sellers offers in order they are received. When a bidder submits a pre-emptive offer well before the scheduled offer time, the realtor is obligated to present it. Sellers can accept it ahead of other offers, or wait to see what other bids they receive. The realtor must wait for the seller’s written instructions (if they will accept or wait), and notify other bidders of the bully offer.
Only if the buyer or seller accepts it. Counter offers replace previous offers, and are not legally binding until signed. Things to watch for: Does the counter offer include deal breakers, such as removing a home inspection condition? Is the proposed price over your pre-approved mortgage amount? Do you feel pressured to make a quick decision, without time to get legal or financial advice? Take a step back when you are uncomfortable with a counter offer a seller or buyer has made.
Not necessarily, although you take the risk the property you are buying is encroaching on a neighbouring lot. Since a survey is not part of the closing transaction, ask the seller’s agent if one is available. If not, and you have concerns about a fence, garage or how big the lot actually is, make it a condition in the agreement of purchase and sale.
We can’t tell you what’s best for your situation, but a biweekly schedule saves money by putting extra money towards your principal. Instead of making 12 monthly payments a year, you make 26 biweekly payments, which works out to one extra payment a year on the principal. You pay down your mortgage quicker (for example, 24 years instead of 30) and co-ordinate payments with your pay cheque.

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.
