Buying a Home

Buying a home is one of the most significant financial decisions people make during their lifetimes. Homebuyers in Manitoba should be aware that the doctrine of “buyer beware” is still alive and well with regard to this significant purchase. Typical offers to purchase used in Manitoba state that all promises made by a seller must be in writing, otherwise they will have no binding effect, and that most of the promises of a seller, even if in writing, will not continue to bind the seller after the closing of a transaction. For these and other reasons, a typical offer to purchase in Manitoba states, in bold print just above the buyer’s signature, that buyers are cautioned to make their own inquiries with respect to matters of importance to them prior to entering into the offer to purchase. Since the purchase of a home is such a significant financial investment, we recommend that you seek the involvement of a lawyer as soon as possible with respect to any purchase which you may be contemplating.

Selling a Home

Like buying a home, selling a home is one of the most significant financial decisions people make during their lifetimes. The importance of proper advice is therefore critical in selling a home.
