Standard forms I require in order to list your property for sale.
1. Working with a Realtor Pamphlet
**Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services Form:
Considering a real estate transaction? One of the first decisions you will need to make is whether you should work with a licensed real estate professional who will represent you. Take a moment to read this important consumer protection information from the Real Estate Council of BC. This form explains the special legal duties that real estate professionals owe to their clients. It will help you choose whether you want to be: • a CLIENT of a real estate professional, who will represent you in the transaction, or • an UNREPRESENTED PARTY with no real estate professional representing you.
***Privacy Notice and Consent Form:
To help you sell, buy or lease real estate, REALTORS®, brokerages and real estate boards need to collect, use and disclose some of your personal information. This brochure provides you with information about, and obtains your consent to, such information handling practices.
2. Listing Contract
This can be an MLS (Multiple Listing Service) contract or an Exclusive Listing Contract. It’s up to you. Please contact me to discuss the advantages or disadvantages of each.
3. Property Disclosure Statement
This is a questionnaire that is filled out by you as Seller. The questions pertain to your understanding of the condition of the property. It is usually provided to and signed by the Buyer. Once signed by the Buyer, it is usually attached to the Contract of Purchase and Sale and thereby attaches liability to the Seller for the responses to the questions.
4. Authorization to request strata documents
This form provides me with the authorization to request necessary strata documentation on your behalf. This documentation is then provided to the Buyer after an offer is accepted, assuming the Buyer requests these documents in their offer.
5. FINTRAC Form
This is a mandatory form, required for the purchase or sale of all real estate in Canada. It has been instituted in an attempt to reduce money laundering and organized crime activity related to real estate. It requires Buyers and Sellers to produce qualifying ID to their agent or mandatory. Your sale cannot proceed without this form being submitted complete.
6. Independent Legal Advice
I strongly recommend that you seek independent legal advice if you have any questions about your listing forms or any other aspects of listing and selling your property.
