It’s not uncommon for clients to arrive at their lawyer’s office for their first home purchase, having already signed a binding Agreement of Purchase and Sale, and they are unaware of the commitment into which they have entered. It is important to us that you are informed before you make the commitment to buy a home. Our job is to protect our clients’ rights, but our role is limited when you have already signed the agreement before you contact us. There are many resources available online that can help you to inform yourself before and during the homebuying process. This article for Global News, for example, written by Dani-Elle Dubé, outlines what you should know before you even contact your real estate agent.
