Hi Welcome to my Blog. Disclaimer
I will be writing about different real-estate topics here and I am hoping that they will be informative and will help anyone looking at buying or selling their home or just simply entertain the naturally curious.
I will do my best to be accurate and I ask anyone reading here to let me know if they see anything that appears to be incorrect. I am human after all and I may make a mistake now and then. I am not a lawyer, mortgage broker, notary, contractor, plumber, electrician, or an accountant. Anything I may refer to in my Blog relating to any of these things will be my opinion and should not be relied upon for making decisions but rather should be used as a starting point to ask questions from certified or licensed professionals. For example if I mention a mortgage for 5% please don’t infer that mortgage rates are 5%, you should not use this when calculating your monthly payments on a new home purchase. Mortgage rates change all the time and the person to speak to about his would be a mortgage broker or your bank. Further to this when I am writing about rules and laws regarding the purchase or sale of real-estate here in BC I will endeavor to quote the actual rule, act or law. I may then write something about it after and this. It will be my opinion of it, not a legal opinion and any legal questions need to be directed to a lawyer. Often with rules there can be more than one act or law that pertains to different situations and finding every single one of them can be difficult if not nearly impossible, that is the job of a lawyer and my references may not be complete. New laws, rules etc. are added all the time, as are legal decisions that are tested in court as to the interpretation of those new and existing laws and rules. I will also try to get answers from people that work for various agencies and I will put their answers here however it has been my experience that people working in these places are not always correct so again these answers or any advice given are a starting point please verify any of these references etc. with the proper agency or professional. Please do not rely on anything in my Blog without first consulting with the proper professional.
I encourage and welcome suggestions for topics to be included here. Please send me an email with your suggestions.
