frequently used by our clients – Christian Garic . If their appraiser needs to inspect the property, please ask them to contact our office at 416-686-2371.
Book your mover
End of the month moves and certain times of year can be particularly busy. We suggest you book a mover as soon as possible. We can give you some companies to contact, if that helps.
(Condos only) Contact the Management Office
Many condo buildings have restrictions on when residents can move in. Check with the management office for details on their policies and to book the elevator.
When will I get the keys?
Your lawyer will obtain the keys for you. You will not receive them until the deal has closed and most closings don’t happen until late afternoon. Bear this in mind when booking your mover, etc.
If your offer included Buyer visits, please let us know as soon as possible when you would like to book them, so that we can make the arrangements. It’s always good to give us some alternative dates and times, in case your first choice isn’t available. If you’re bringing a contractor for a quotation, please let us know in advance and make sure they arrive on time. Visits are generally limited to one hour and you want to make the best use of the time.
