  • What happens after an offer has been accepted?
    The usual conditions of an offer are the following: Financing, inspection as well as document

    the immovable he’s looking to buy. The document condition allows a buyer to verify any pertinent
    documentation pertaining to the immovable, making sure that everything is in order. This is especially important with co-ownerships when condo fees, financial statements and contingency funds play a primordial role.
