Buying FAQ

What is the process once I buy a house?

Once we receive the offer to purchase you will receive a letter from our office notifying you that we have the contract for sale and have started the due dilligence process. Please ask your realtor to email it to us at jmf@jmflawcorp.ca or fax it to 204-417-6084. Otherwise, feel free to drop it off at our office at your convenience.

When do I sign the documents for my purchase?

Our office will contact you to set up an appointment at a time that works for you. This will have to take place before the possession date on your contract for sale. In the event you are getting a mortgage we will need your mortgage instructions before we can meet.

What will it cost to buy our house?

We suggest that you contact our office for a customized estimate. The biggest expense you will incur is Land Transfer Tax. This is a tax the Government of Manitoba charges everyone who buys a property. Click here to figure out exactly what your land transfer tax will be.

Other costs and expenses include, land titles registration costs, legal fees, GST, PST, and disbursements. We will also adjust for property taxes to ensure that the vendor is responsible for all property taxes up to the date of possession.

When do I get the keys for the house?

We will arrange to get the keys from the vendor's lawyer before possession. Once we have the keys we will contact you so that you have them in time for your move.
