Sarah, Francine and Angela are roommates who rent a three-bedroom house. In January 2010, they entered into a contract with a contractor to purchase and sell a one-bedroom condo in a new residential complex to be built. The purchase price under the agreement was $300,000 and the conclusion was July 31, 2013. In such cases, the client may submit his new application for a return to the dwelling directly with the credit rating agency and not through Dener A. In this way, the acquirer of the assignee may have included in the application the tax paid to the owner A and the tax paid to the assignee in the residential housing application, in order to determine the amount of their rebate on the dwelling and, if applicable, a new provincial rebate on housing. The technical aspects of an assignment require more than simply taking over the original buyer`s initial purchase and sale contract with the owner, scraping his name and replacing it with the new purchaser. (Although, in some cases, attempts are being made to push the terms of the award into a new purchase and sale agreement concluded on behalf of the new purchaser – but this is certainly NOT recommended). Specifically, the original buyer enters into a formal purchase and sale contract with a contractor, and then allows another person – whom we call the “new buyer” – to walk in his shoes, by what is called an “assignment” of that initial contract or offer. The new purchaser pays the original buyer a higher price than the one set out in this original agreement; the difference is the benefit of the original buyer. All this happens after the original buyer has agreed to buy from the owner, but before the agreement is reached; The original buyer never takes ownership of the property.

As noted above, the transfer agreement is conditional on the owner giving his consent. From the perspective of the new purchaser, it should also be subject to a thorough review of the initial purchase and sale agreement (as signed by the original purchaser), the transfer agreement as well as all modifications, waiver declarations, communications (and for condominium purchases, disclosure declaration). If there is no other reason, it will give the new buyer a chance to review the specific list of adjustments he or she will have to pay at closing. It goes without saying that this audit must be conducted under the supervision of an experienced lawyer. Does this mean that the original buyer will get away with it freely after the signing of the transfer agreement? No no. In the end, the basic clause contained in a purchase and sale agreement may or may not authorize the transfer of the contract to a new purchaser and, if permitted, is subject to certain conditions, such as the written agreement of the owner. Most agreements embellish this basic clause by adding other written provisions such as: In addition, a lawyer can help obtain the consent of the owner himself for the assignment.
