First Come, First Served
Each parcel of land will be sold to the first person who contacts our office to arrange the required deposit.
Documents on File
We hold perfect title, in the form of Deed, or Certificate of Title, for every property we offer, and these documents may be inspected at our office at any time. We undertake to give you clear title or refund the amount you have paid to us, in full, without interest or other charges.
Canadian Sales Tax
Canada imposes a one time Goods and Services Tax (GST) or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). GST at 5% is applicable in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. HST is 13% in Ontario, 15% in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland. These taxes are payable to the Government through us, when the account is fully paid and title is being transferred to the new owner.
When the buyer has paid the purchase price in full and on receipt of a fee of five hundred and twenty-five dollars (tax included), a deed transfer conveying clear title will be issued. Each province has a different system and in most cases, we are required to register title for you through our Solicitors. For others, we do not register your title but supply the information on costs and clear instructions for easy registration. In both cases, registration fees apply.
Non-Residents of Canada
Non-Residents of Canada may purchase properties in Canada under the same conditions as Canadian residents.
The buyer is required to pay taxes for 2018 and following years. Taxes are not apportioned to date of purchase. A twenty dollar charge (Including Canadian Sales Tax) per tax bill will be added for bank fees and handling costs.
Terms of payment are quoted in the individual property descriptions and the purchaser may choose for himself whether to take advantage of the discount offered for cash or to pay in regular monthly installments. If payments are to be made by installments, the first monthly payment will fall due one month from the date of acceptance of the order and regularly each month thereafter on the same date until the purchase price is paid in full. Regularity of monthly payments is essential. Interest will be calculated monthly, on the unpaid balance of the account (including taxes paid on the customer’s behalf) at a rate of one percent per month (12.7 percent yearly). Account balances may be paid out at any time without penalty or other charges.
If for any reason, within two years from date of original purchase, you decide to exchange your property for another of equal or greater value, we will credit all monies paid to H. M. Dignam Corporation Ltd. for the property to the new account, less interest and taxes, if any. A transfer fee of three hundred and ninety dollars is payable at time of transfer.
Purchasers outside Canada may remit cheque or money order in Canadian or United States funds. At present, we allow a 20% premium on United States currency but this rate is subject to change.
