We will help you make the leap.
Unfortunately, for liability reasons, we cannot install your appliances. They can be ordered as soon as the deed of sale is signed at the notary’s office. To avoid damage to your appliances, please have them delivered after your occupancy date.
N.B.: If your unit includes appliances, delivery and installation will still be your responsibility.
Unfortunately, the construction of a new building has its share of surprises, which can delay the delivery of your unit.
Examples include borough delays in issuing the building permit, a municipal water main break, a heavy snowfall or a cold winter, a general strike by construction workers, a shortage of materials, a dispute with a neighbour or a supplier. All these factors are beyond our control and can have a significant impact on the delivery date.
While we always strive to find solutions, we value the quality of the finished product. In our experience, the last thing you want is a rush job.
Our commitment to you is clear: we will inform you of any changes as soon as possible. In almost all delays, customers are notified several months before the scheduled delivery.
Condo fees are used for the proper operation and maintenance of a condominium. They will vary from one project to another, depending on the common areas. The maintenance of underground garages, elevators, storage spaces, common terraces and landscaping will affect the annual costs.
Condo fees cover the contingency fund and the administration fund, i.e., annual expenses such as building insurance and various costs (janitorial services, snow removal, grounds maintenance, elevator, heating, etc.).
The plans have already been extensively revised by our team, the architects and the municipality. So the version of the plans you see has been reviewed and corrected to maximize the space and ergonomics of each unit. After all, that’s what we do.
For some units, however, you will have the option of an alternative configuration. Our past experience has shown us that modifications are the main source of mistakes, delays and … disappointments (!). That’s why we put so much effort into the planning process and making sure that every detail is well thought out. For optimum experience and comfort.
That said, our options manager will meet with you to help you choose from our range of finishes developed by our design team. So you will be able to choose the materials for your living spaces.
This cost is unknown before the project is built. A few weeks (or months) after the work is completed, the municipality will send out an appraiser to calculate your unit’s property value. You will then be informed of the amount of your municipal assessment, on which municipal and school taxes are based.
In Montreal, the municipal assessment is lower than your property’s market value. So, in most cases, you can fairly conservatively estimate your total annual taxes (municipal and school combined) at 1% of your purchase price.
For the initial sale of units in a new construction project, all buyers must use the same notary. The notary prepares the subdivision of the units, the declaration of co-ownership and the building’s rules and coordinates the adjustment amounts.
With his or her detailed knowledge of the entire project, the notary is able to answer all your questions before you sign the deeds of sale and loan agreements.
The difference is simple: they are two different methods of calculation. Gross living area is calculated from the plans and includes the thickness of the walls, for example. To compute the net living area, a surveyor has to measure the “final” interior space. With those measurements, the notary can draw up the final deed of sale.
So the net living area will always be less than the gross living area (usually some 8% to 12% less).
For reasons of safety, insurance, guarantees and compliance with CNESST protocols, entering a construction site is strictly prohibited – even if your building is physically accessible.
However, all of our buyers are invited to a take a safe, supervised tour of their unit with our team. A perfect opportunity to take measurements and start planning your furniture purchases!
The pre-delivery inspection is the last step before you sign the deed of sale (and pick up the keys) at the notary’s office. On the agreed date, our representative will provide you with the pre-delivery inspection list from the Residential Construction Guarantee (GCR), approved by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec. He/she will review and complete the form with you to ensure that everything is in order.
As soon as the deed of sale is signed at the notary’s office, you will get the keys!
