When a real estate lawyer requests the signature of the spouse who has no registered interest in the final documents, the lawyer requires that he or she give the necessary consent to give full effect to the sale. The right of ownership of the property is abandoned and consent to the sale is given. In the event that such consent is not given or if such consent is not fully informed, the sale may be cancelled by the court. The buyer is also required to pay GST if the sale is subject to GST. Ack! Seven percent. Hundreds of thousands of dollars. Could this chest pain be a heart attack? Relax! The purchase of a resale house is not subject to the GST. The tax only has to be paid on newly built houses and is usually included in the purchase price, so it is barely noticeable. If a property is a matrimonial home, does the spouse who is not the owner sign both the consent of the spouse and one of the sellers? You`ve found the house of your dreams (or at least something with four walls and a roof that isn`t a total nightmare). You made your offer to purchase and the seller accepted the offer, the offer became a contract called a contract of purchase and sale.

Buyers and sellers now have legal obligations arising from the contract. The OREA agreement also contains another provision known as a spouse`s permit. This provision requires the consenting spouse, without title, to sign the contract so that the seller (the title) can sell the property. It is therefore essential to obtain confirmations and consents in advance so that the spouse can apply to the courts for an order requiring the conclusion of the transaction and the cooperation of the non-spouse. . . .
