Tips for Buying a New Condominium

Thinking of a purchasing a new condominium? Then work with a real estate professional who has experience in new construction condominiums. Here are some great tips for Buyers to consider before entering into an agreement of purchase and sale of a new construction condominium ~ provided to you by CMHC:

Look over the unit’s drawings and specifications so you’re clear about the floor measurements. Do they reflect the actual floor area of the unit or do they include the exterior and interior wall floor space areas as well? Verify where the unit’s boundaries are and that your unit factor is reasonable.

Find out whether or not you can have changes made to the placement of walls, windows, doorways and types of doors (such as a pocket door) and what the costs would be.

Inquire whether the building and/or your unit will be accessible to someone with limited mobility. What universal design features will the unit include?

Find out if there are plans to reduce the ceiling height anywhere in the unit to allow for ductwork and other mechanical and electrical services. This can have an impact on the esthetics of the unit and the eventual location of lighting fixtures and furniture as well as wall decorations and fittings.

Check the future location of heating and air-conditioning equipment, ventilators and hot water heaters. Again, this can affect how much space you’ll have and the attractiveness of your unit.

Ask the developer key questions about construction quality, such as:

  • Have any special steps been taken to limit noise between units?
  • How are the units heated, cooled and ventilated?
  • How are odours controlled?
  • Is the building energy-efficient? If so, what special equipment or systems would need to be maintained?
  • Has water efficiency been incorporated into the unit’s fixtures?
  • Who operates and maintains the heating and air-conditioning systems?
  • What options are there for suite wall and floor finishes, cabinets, and plumbing and lighting fixtures?
  • How has the building construction taken into account environmental considerations?

Check with the developer and municipality about construction plans in the neighbouring area. Is the building part of a larger complex? What are the plans to build other structures, such as a high-rise, nearby? Could new buildings change the view from your unit significantly?

Be clear about what is and isn’t included in the purchase price so you can compare overall costs with other condominiums. For example:

  • Are there amenities, such as pools and parking, and how are they paid for?
  • Are finishes in the units included in the purchase price?
  • Are there other charges over and above the purchase price you should be aware of?
  • Are utilities (gas, electricity and water charges) covered in the monthly condominium fees or are they separately metered? (You don’t want to end up paying part of your neighbour’s utility bills.)

Verify, as best you can, that your monthly condo fees are realistic. Condo fees often increase after the condominium’s first year of operation because the developer may have agreed to pay for certain expenses in the first year, such as a concierge’s salary, but not in the second year. Fees can also increase after the first reserve fund study has been completed.

Investigate whether there are any “hidden” costs. For example, some developers take out long-term leases on building fixtures, such as furnaces, to save on capital costs. These costs are inevitably passed along to owners.

Check if the unit comes with a new home warranty, which ensures that the building is properly constructed and meets legal regulations. You should know what the warranty covers and for how long. Coverage on major components can run for as long as five to seven years after a building is completed. For more information on new home warranties, see CMHC’s online guide Homebuying Step by Step.

Evaluate the current state of the construction project. Is it likely that the project will be completed by the date set out in the purchase agreement from the developer? It’s important to assess this before making your moving and financing arrangements. There can be an unexpectedly lengthy wait before a new condominium project is completed and you can move in.

Request a “disclosure statement” from the developer in those jurisdictions where legislation stipulates a developer must provide you with one before the sale agreement is binding. A disclosure statement will give you some indication of the rules, regulations and financial situation of the condominium corporation before you buy and includes, among other things:

  • a summary of the condominium’s features and amenities;
  • the condominium’s governing documents; and
  • the condominium’s budget for the first year after registration.

Find out if your purchase agreement lets the developer extend the occupancy date. This is especially important if you are making arrangements to vacate your existing home by a specific date based on the original closing date. You should also check your provincial or territorial homeowner protection legislation to learn your rights if your agreed-upon occupancy date is missed.

Consult with your lawyer before signing any documents.
