Building a new home can be an exciting experience but, like any major purchase, you’ll want to do your homework first. Here’s a list of questions that you should ask your builder before you sign a purchase agreement.
Tarion is the official regulator of Ontario’s new home building industry. All Ontario builders and vendors must be registered with Tarion to build and sell homes legally in Ontario. In addition, all new homes must be enrolled prior to construction. You can check online to see if a builder has had any Tarion warranty claims at: http://www.tarion.com/_layouts/15/buildersearch/builder_search.aspx?gclid=CLGxkOKLrtECFcO6wAodq0UJdw.
If a builder is registered with the Better Business Bureau, you can also check out complaints lodged against them by going to https://www.bbb.org/. Make sure you ask your builder about any complaints so that they have the opportunity to explain the full story.
