How New Real Estate Regulations in Ontario Could Benefit You

The Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) is mandated by the Government of Ontario to protect buyers and sellers who are working through a registered brokerage, and these new rules provide RECO with more of an ability to protect consumers throughout their real estate transactions.  Proposed Changes to Ontario Real Estate Rules  There are a number of changes that are part of the new announced rules that will affect how you buy or sell real estate, including: More clarity for both buyers and sellers so they know whether they are represented by a brokerage, or if they are self-represented; New disclosures…
