Some FAQs

Lenders take a financial risk with you. They go on title to your property, and endure long delays and legal expenses if they have to foreclose. Naturally, your lender wants to know your work and credit history, monthly expenses for housing and taxes, heat, and debts, your assets vs liabilities, and available down payment. The property’s value and condition compared to the amount you want to borrow goes into the final equation. A few hints for being approved:

  1. Pass your work probationary period before applying.
  2. Get a few credit cards to build a credit history.
  3. Borrow less than you’re pre-approved for to keep your payments affordable.
Conveyancing means to transfer title to a property. Axess Law Scarborough virtual real estate lawyers search the title to properties you buy and register title in your name. Adding a spouse to property title is easy and costs less when you use Axess Law Scarborough’s flat fee legal services.
Include a broomswept condition clause in your agreement of purchase and sale. That requires the seller to remove dirt and junk before possession, or pay for a cleaner if they leave the home in a mess. The alternative is to clean it yourself and give the seller the bill, but only if you made a clean home a condition of your offer to purchase, which Axess Law Scarborough does for you.
It would be nice if they did so you can plan your own move. Axess Law Scarborough includes a specific time in the agreement of purchase and sale. Absent that, Ontario Superior Court has ruled any time before midnight is sufficient.
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.
