About Peterborough

Peterborough and the Kawarthas are a lush wonderland of forests, lakes, and weekend cottages. Hundreds of kilometres of urban parks and trails make Peterborough a great place to retire. The city is built around Little Lake and the Otonabee River rapids, dominated by Tower Hill. The historic Peterborough Lift Lock visitor centre on the Trent Canal simulates the experience of going over a 65-foot lift in a boat and offers “underwater” dining adventures. No wonder the city’s natural setting is the perfect home for the Canadian Canoe Museum.

Some Real Estate FAQs

Brokers are usually paid a small percentage of your mortgage amount by a lender they recommend. However, if your credit is shaky, you may have to pay a fee of 0.5% to 2% directly to the broker. The broker still gets a finder’s fee from the lender, but charges you for the extra work locating a lender for a real estate purchase requires.

You can, as long as you arranged for a portable mortgage on your initial real estate purchase. Porting simply means transferring your current mortgage amount, terms, and conditions to a new home at the same time you sell existing real estate. If the mortgage amount is more, your lender blends your existing interest rate with the best rate for the new amount you are borrowing. The blended rate is extended to the whole mortgage.

That depends on when it was placed on a real estate development and why. Restrictive covenants are only enforceable for 40 years, although some may end earlier. Check the purchase agreement the real estate developer provided to find the date. Covenants government considers contrary to the public interest are usually not legally binding anyway. Your Axess Law   virtual Peterborough real estate lawyer refers you to our trusted legal partners if you have issues with a restrictive covenant. We recommend only lawyers we know have experience with the real estate issues you are concerned about.

You pay upfront application and property appraisal fees to arrange a reverse mortgage on Ontario real estate. Like any mortgage, closing costs are required to register the loan. Your Axess Law virtual Peterborough real estate lawyer can finalize your mortgage documents, or provide independent legal advice to help you understand your legal obligations. Besides those expenses, you are responsible for maintaining your home, and paying property taxes, common elements fees in condos, and home insurance.
