Finance

Current share of the condo 35% (downward revision)

Below is an overview of the estimated costs;

municipal tax $6805.50 $198,49/month school
tax $560,38 $16,34/month building
ass. $1952,19 $56,03/month
heating (3.5k liter) $100/month*

Considering all expenses (insurance, taxes, electricity, etc.) you can estimate the condo's fixed costs around $425/month for 35% of shares.

*Heating costs vary depending on winter rigour (number of litres of oil consumed) and the change in oil prices.

Currently there is a mortgage grafted to the building by the other co-owner at Caisse Populaire Desjardins Faubourg Saint-Jean, which implies, if necessary, financing to this banking institution (undivided condo fund set at 20% of the sale price).

** 27% possible share depending on the type of additional storage.

Co-Owner

We are 2 co-owners and the other co-owner has lived in the building since 1966.

A condominium agreement was created when the 26-3 was purchased in 2003. This is being revised in order to amend clauses for the arrival of the new purchaser. In fact, the time is convenient for him to add his grain of salt to it.
There will be a clause that will prohibit short-term leasing, only an annual lease will be tolerated.


Inclusion

Light fixtures, blinds, appliances, washer, dryer, balcony grating.

Flexible takeover.

* The measurements of the parts are approximate.


Note: mortgage in indivision

Article 1015 of the Civil Code of Québec provides that each undivided co-owner may alone grant a mortgage on his share of the immovable. Thus, the latter's debt to his creditor is secured by a mortgage that is exercised only against the undivided rights (the share) held by him in the immovable. The other co-owners do not have to bear the debt.

Historical information of 26-28 rue Garneau

This building is the result of multiple additions and transformations made to a single house of mass plan, presumably built by Antoine Paquet around 1725. In 1781, the Paquet family still occupied the location, according to the admission and enumeration of the Séminaire de Québec.

In 1808, the house appeared on the model of Jean-Baptiste Duberger (1767-1821) and John By (1779-1836). Its volume is then relatively large, suggesting the presence of two adjoining dwellings.

On June 27, 1848, master mason Joseph Petitclerc had carpentry and carpentry work performed at a one-storey stone house. It appears on the 1875 insurers' atlas with a wooden one-storey annex at the rear, on Christie Street.

On May 6, 1910, Zéphirin Charron made repairs to the building. The importance of the work suggests that the house could be enhanced on this occasion. The 1910 Atlas of Charles Edward Goad (1848-1910) now shows a three-storey stone house with two small wooden annexes at the back. Around 1923, it was used as a bedroom house.

In 1949, important transformations were made, according to the specifications of the architect Henri Talbot (1905-1996) in order to develop a binding workshop and two dwellings in the building.

Currently, the house has three floors and is topped with a flat roof. It includes a latch and doors lined with a side window. It has a rather heterogeneous formal composition. The commercial occupation of the ground floor certainly contributed to the singular aspect of this level.

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.

1
Financing

One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

2
Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

3
Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

4
Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
