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 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 requires.
You can, as long as you arranged for a portable mortgage on your first property. Porting simply means transferring your current mortgage amount, terms and conditions to a new home at the same time you sell an existing property. If the mortgage amount is more, your lender blends your existing interest rate with the best rate they can offer 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 property and why. Restrictive covenants are only enforceable for 40 years, although some may end earlier. Check the purchase agreement your developer provided to find the date. Covenants government considers contrary to the public interest are usually not legally binding anyway. Axess Law North York refers you to our trusted legal partners if you have issues with a restrictive covenant. We recommend only lawyers we know have experience with real estate issues you are concerned about.
You pay upfront application and property appraisal fees. Like any mortgage, closing costs are required to register the mortgage. Axess Law Peterborough can finalize your mortgage documents. For $349.99 plus HST, we 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.
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.
