5 Things you Need to Know about the Home Inspection Process

5 Things you Need to Know about the Home Inspection Process

1) Find an Inspector you trust…ask me, Ann Corrigan, for recommendations..I only work with experienced professionals

2) Get an overview of the scope of the inspection…what is included + what is not

3) How long will it take?  An average 4 bedroom home-2500 sq’ +/- will take about 3 hours

4) An inspection is largely a visual evaluation of the property at that time….it cannot guarantee future occurrences

5) How much will it cost…prices will vary by inspector and scope of work…I can give you a rough idea

 

A Home Inspection is a great way to learn about your home…Call Ann Corrigan 905-334-4877 for more info

Wondering about Buying a Condo? Re-sale vs New

2511lakeshoreroadwestbronteoakvilleontarioanncorriganoutsideview

 

New condo owners are sometimes unpleasantly surprised by large increases in condo fees. These increases can occur during the 2nd or 3rd year of ownership.

For example, fees to cover the cost of certain amenities, like a guest suite that a corporation may have to buy as an asset, might not take effect until year 2. Before you buy, find out if there will be any deferred costs and make sure that you can handle a rise in monthly condo fees. Read more from the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services

Buying a Resale Condo

There are 2 main differences between buying a unit from the developer and buying a resale condo:

  • the Condominium Act gives people who buy a newly-built condo a 10-calendar day cooling-off period during which they can cancel the purchase. However, the Condominium Act does not provide buyers of resale condo units with a cooling-off period
  • when you buy from a developer you are entitled to receive and review a package of materials called a disclosure statement. With a resale condo, you can review a similar package called a status certificate, provided by the condo corporation. However, you have to request and pay a fee to receive a status certificate. Both packages include copies of the declaration, by-laws and rules
