    Thank you for responding to my questions. We did receive the HST rebate thing. I didn't have time to match it with the "closing statement" yet. Will keep you posted on that. I was told by my lawyer that we are liable for 2010 tax cos in the "closing cost" there is a rebate credited to us...

    Property tax We recently receive 3 bills. One is for the original assessment for 2 years which adds up to $3800+ & another 2 "supplement/omit" came in last night which adds up to another $2,000+, Our occupancy was May 2010 & closing was in April 2011, so why am I billed for 2010? Shouldn't...

    I'm curious about the "ratings" for this developer GG. Anyone know anything about GG, if they have good quality or are they a nightmare? Thanks

    I will definitely upload a copy of my lawyers letter once I get it. There are 2 items on my PDI that haven't been fixed. One of them minor so I can fix it myself and the other is .... THE BLINDS!!! On of the blinds in the master bedroom doesn't roll all the way up & we are thinking maybe they...

    Klaus, you get my vote. Like suggested, you should start a proxy vote thing going. Not everyone will attend the meeting & you don't want to miss out on those voters.

    Went to sign the papers for closing yesterday & my lawyer is drafting a letter to the builder saying that the said blinds are fixtures & they are not allowed to remove nor enter our unit without our permission (in legal language obviously)... We are now proud owners of a mortgage... yeah!

    So here's the email I got from the builder through my lawyer. Pursuant to subsections 19(2) and (3) of O/Reg 48/01, the rate of interest computed and accruing with respect to monies paid on account of the purchase price is 2% p.a below the bank rate established by the Bank of Canada as the...

    In my purchase agreement under clause 12(a), it says that the builder will credit interest earned from our downpayment on the closing statement. I remember asking Sofie about the clause too, and that was exactly what she said to me. The funny thing is, I've got the "breakdown" of the downpayment...

    Just got my closing statement today. Question is, what happen to the interest that is "earned" with our downpayment? The statement shows Interest - 0%. How is that possible?

    JayBee, all the PDI items are fixed for us. We had to constantly bug them. On a separate note, I am gonna start shopping for blinds AGAIN! Anyone with good reference? I was looking at Hunter Douglas before. Pricey but seems like really good quality. For those who wants the existing blinds...

    Should we "address" the note to "Owner of unit", maybe some tenants will forward it to the owner? I know on my floor, only 3 units are owned & the rest are rentals. I'll print out the final version on Friday & drop them off. I'm on 16th, I can cover 15th - 17th. Hopefully we get some who will...

    Mortgage rates

    Seeing that the closing date is drawing close for 500 Sherbourne, has anyone of you decide on type of mortgage & financial institution to go with? I'm so super confused by all the different types of mortgages available out there. I'm thinking variable rate is looking like a good deal but of...

    A quick question... If we take the "deal" of removing the blinds after closing, doesn't it mean that we'll have to give them permission to enter our unit? Say; nobody is at home during the week & we are only available on some weekends, can they legally demand a date from us? As far as I know...

    I heard from my lawyer yesterday & he said to expect a second letter soon. He SPECULATES (I know it's not a common thing for a lawyer to do but I think he is on to something here) that the letter will say one of 2 things... A "discounted" price on the blinds or removal of blinds at their cost...

    Buyers hit with big bills for surprise adjustments

    I agree with the "consistent appearance". Having said that, there are many different "style" of blinds these days that is suitable for condo units. We weren't given a choice to the blinds & they suck at functionality! I have a big gap at the corner of the bedroom & in the summer it's impossible...

    I'm using this forum to release my frustration so please bare with me while I SCREAM!!! We got our letter yesterday, 21st Dec. It is dated 13th Dec & said to acknowledge within 10days. It had our old address; no postage stamps & sure as hell wasn't hand delivered. So can I "pretend" I have...

    Our first bill was more than $100 (excluding the deposit). I almost pass out. Bare in mind that I only have the ac running in the evenings when I get home & I don't even run it everyday. I think I probably have the ac on no more than 5 days when the first bill arrived!

    I'm starting to find more & more fault with the building now... I like to leave the windows & balcony doors open to get some fresh air circulation but the darn screens on the windows keep falling off!! Water pressure in the ensuite bathroom is pathetic these couple of days. The floor is...
