Home Buyers are understandably excited to move into their new home, however a couple key things need to happen before any #Kelowna #RealEstate transaction is “CLOSED”:

  1. LENDERS – all the banks conditions need to be satisfied. This may be simple (ex. signing a mortgage) or complex (ex. confirming another home has been sold or a third party debt is paid);
  2. SELLERS – some Vendors will place conditions on closing that are required under the contract (for example, where there is a Vendor Take Back Mortgage);
  3. INSURANCE AGENT – if you are getting a mortgage, the insurance needs to be arranged and proof of insurance must be provided to your lawyer (called an “insurance binder”);
  4. STRATA COUNCIL – if you are buying a strata property, the strata will need to provide a FORM F and FORM B which may require certain payments or conditions on closing;
  5. MUNICIPALITY and TAXATION AUTHORITIES – Cities, regional districts, and utility providers on title need to provide adjusted fees and verify there are no additional amounts owing;
  6. GUARANTEED FUNDS IN TRUST – If funds are coming from another sale, that sale must complete before your deal can move forward.

How fast can this happen?… Montgomery Miles & Stone Law Firm has closed deals in as little as 24 hours, but to ensure a smooth and worry free closing, we suggest at least TWO WEEKS between your Subject Removal Date and your Closing Date.
