Homeowner's Protection For Real Estate Sellers in the Outaouais
Updated: Jun 28
Via Capitale is the only real estate banner to offer sale price compensation.
What does Homeowner Protection consist of?
Homeowner Protection protects the seller who, after accepting a promise to purchase whose conditions have been fulfilled, and who has or will soon take possession of his new home, is faced with a situation where the buyer:
Delays the signing of the deed of sale
Withdraws from the promise to purchase
Passes away accidentally
Homeowner Protection provides reimbursement of several costs incurred on the property as well as compensation for the sale price differential.
Maximum compensation is $25,000.
In addition, the seller does not need to pay a deductible: another market exclusive
Owner Protection takes effect on the 15th day after the date the deed of sale is signed and is offered for a maximum of 180 days or until the date of resale of the home, whichever occurs first.
What are the eligibility requirements? *
The owner-seller must be a natural person occupying the building or an estate or a curate and be under brokerage contract at all times for the sale of his home with Alain Dussault, a participating Via Capitale Realtor.
