Before you buy, your Real Estate Lawyer can advise you on:
Are there any liens or outside claims from unpaid debts for past work? Any outstanding judgments or municipal work orders? Have utilities been paid?
Did the builder have the necessary building permits and work orders for any work done?
Does the property comply with all by-laws? For example, is the fence height legal? Is the parking area allowed by zoning? How will any easements and rights of way effect or limit my use of the property?
Are there any special zoning or other rules or restrictions that apply to this property? For example, is it in a heritage district? Can I put in a clothesline?
Does the property have asbestos, UFFI, lead paint? If yes, what can I do about it?
Is the current owner leaving behind the appliances? The garden shed? The lighting fixtures?
Can I rent out the basement? Can I have a tenant?
