  • What are the condo fees? What do they include? Are they set at an amount that will be sufficient to cover future expenses? What future expenses is the condominium corporation planning and saving for?
  • What is included in my unit? Do I get a parking space and is it assigned, leased or owned?
  • What are the By-Laws of the condominium? Can I have a pet? Can I rent my unit out at a future date? Is there an age restriction?

Working with a REALTOR® who is familiar with condo sales and purchases is ESSENTIAL to make sure that the process goes smoothly. I completed the Condominium and the Professional REALTOR® training in 2009.  I then fine tuned my skills in another session of this course in October 2012. I have an excellent working knowledge of the various condominium documents required in the process. I can also recommend an independent condo document review services  to look over the documents before you purchase. Buying a condo is a specialized process…one that you don’t want to leave to chance!
