What’s the importance of a certificate of location?
You are about to make the most important investment of your life: the purchase of a property. To protect this investment, you will need to take a few precautions. You've visited the property, you're satisfied with it and you're ready to conclude the transaction at the notary's office who will draw up the purchase contract. However, some questions come to mind:
Answering these questions before the contract is signed will first allow the notary to prepare a clearer title deed that accurately describes the property you have seen and secondly, it will make you think about the value of your future investment: would you still be interested in signing if you learned that the garage is partially built on the neighbouring property?
