Correct as above (MadMax, Cdr and Bubbles). So long as you are not making structural changes a builder like Tridel can be flexible in meeting design requirements. Tridel purchasers typically get sent a design magazine, Home+, and invitations to evening and information seminars prior to choosing their colour selections. With Tridel, you also have a website (MyTridelHome.com) where all your documentation, notifications and addendae are stored including upgrades, care requests, homeowners manual and more.
Any special upgrade requests involving structural changes are often impossible to do once construction is underway. Feature upgrades after the suite has been completed can be expensive of course since you're paying twice plus once for tear-out.
For people with physical disabilities, this should be brought up at purchase. Special hardware for bathrooms can be installed such as tub grab bars. Tridel has also lowered kitchen cabinetry on request. Switches are mostly installed waist high so it won't be an issue for people in wheelchairs. Tridel was pleased recently to solve a parking issue for a purchaser who required wheel chair space for getting into their vehicle.
Look into suite wiring for electrical outlets, cable/tv and telephone. There are options for people who want to wall mount flat screens or include wall/ceiling speakers.
Read the features and finishes schedule very carefully! This can make a big difference in the value of your home purchase/investment.
As per getting a real estate lawyer I'm always surprised how many people I talk to who want to skip this step to save some money! Whatever you do, find a real estate lawyer who is familiar with closing condominium sales. We provide a list on the Tridel website of lawyers who have closed many condo deals: http://www.tridel.com/condo/lawyer.php. Also, Tridel uses eClose Guaranteed so lawyers get all inforation electronically.
Also consider getting title insurance.
Thanks for the info Tridelwebmaster...btw, my lawyers on that list. As you say, always get a lawyer before the 10 day cooling off period....they can save you a lot of money on closing costs, and advise you on shady deals.
