When you’re buying a brand-new condominium, or a converted condominium, you are often dealing with the developer’s sales agent instead of a Realtor. Without a Realtor guiding you through the condominium transaction, you can be left vulnerable to the developer’s demands.
At Diamond and Diamond, our lawyers have guided many buyers through their condominium transactions in Mississauga and surrounding areas. We protect your interests by reviewing your purchase agreement, advising you about problematic clauses in the agreement and making sure your closing proceeds smoothly.
We Review New Condominium Agreements For Free
Individuals are often unaware that they will not be able to use a realtor for new condo deals. As a result, they often lack guidance when it comes to reviewing and signing the purchase and sale agreement. What some clients also do not know is that there are additional closing costs the developer charges for items such as:
- Development and educational levies
- Deposit administration fees
- Utility connection charges
Without consulting a lawyer to help ensure your interests are protected you may leave yourself vulnerable to higher closing costs.
Our lawyers provide you with a free review of new condominium purchase and sale agreements. We will also help you negotiate lower costs for the additional items. We will read the contract, identify clauses that are not in your best interests, and advise you accordingly.

What does a real estate lawyer do at closing?
A real estate lawyer will be present with you at the closing of the transaction, but what’s more important is what they will do for you before the deal closes. Your lawyer will prepare and review all the documents to sign at closing. They will advise you and represent your interests. A real estate attorney can advise you on matters of deeds and property taxes. They can also guide you in matters of zoning, titles, and estate planning.
Can a buyer back out from an accepted offer?
Yes, there are several ways to back out of an offer, some easier than others. If you’ve made an offer contingent upon the sale of your current home, or upon getting approved for a loan, it’s much more manageable. These contingencies are time-bound, so if the conditions are not met within the timeframe, the deal is off. You’ll have put up earnest money when making the offer, and you don’t want to lose it if you are having second thoughts. This situation is where a competent real estate lawyer can help, ensuring you understand your financial and legal rights.
