Do I Get To Select My Own Colours And Finishes? +

This depends on the status of the home you’ve purchased. For pre-construction condominiums, colour selection begins shortly after the commencement of construction. You will be contacted by a Customer Care Representative to arrange for an appointment. At this time you will select colours and finishes (carpet, tiles, cabinets and countertops) and may also arrange for any upgrades or specialty items.

If you are moving into a completed home, Petretta will have selected some of the finishes and colours for your suite.

Generally, pets are permitted in Petretta condominiums. It is advised however, to refer to the specific Harbour Club rules and regulations before purchasing.

What Are The Advantages Of Buying A Pre-Construction Home? +

Buying your condo at the planning stage can involve a substantial savings and also allows you a much wider selection of floor plans, finishes and locations within the building.

What Are The Advantages Of Buying A “New” Home? +

A new home will result in less maintenance, less repairs and in return, less expenses.

You will have the choice of décor and finishings, resulting in a home that meets your tastes, rather than someone else’s.

New homes are also backed by a Tarion warranty.

  • Provides a one-year all purpose warranty against defects in workmanship and materials
  • Provides a two-year “power train” warranty (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc)
  • Tarion also provides warranty coverage for the condominium’s common elements
  • Protection against major structural defects
  • Provides compensation to purchasers for delayed closings

Please see tarion.com for details of warranty coverage and limitations.

When Will The Condo Be Ready For Occupancy? +

The Interim Occupancy Date is currently scheduled for Fall, 2021.

How Is Your Interim Occupancy Date Established? +

Your interim occupancy date is the target date upon which it is estimated in your agreement of purchase and sale, that your home will be completed to permit occupancy. This date is dependent upon a number of factors, including the achievement of a threshold level of sales to permit the commencement of construction of the condominium building, and the particular location of your suite.

You will be kept up-to-date on the progress of the development, and will be given a revised occupancy date, once it has been established by the builder. Even though you will be moving into your new home on the firm occupancy date, you will not be getting title to it at that time, since the condominium will not be registered.

What Is Registration? +

Registration refers to the formal creation of the Condominium Corporation. The process is initiated when the builder submits plans and paperwork to the requisite governmental authorities, once all of the units and common elements within the project have been substantially completed.

The condominium’s declaration and description are ultimately registered in the land titles office, following their approval by the requisite governmental authorities. The entire process may take approximately two to five months following your interim occupancy.

Does Petretta Have The Right To Extend The Occupancy Date? +

Petretta may extend your tentative occupancy date provided that you are given a minimum of 90 days notice, prior to your original occupancy date and no later than 30 days following roof assembly.

Your final tentative occupancy date may then be extended by a maximum of 120 days, provided that you receive written notice a minimum of 90 days before that date. If this final extension is required, your occupancy date status will then change from final tentative to firm.

Remember that according to Tarion “the builder is not responsible for delays caused by strikes, fires, civil insurrections, floods or Acts of God.”

What Happens At Interim Occupancy? +

Approximately 5 – 10 days prior to your firm occupancy date you will be asked to sign an occupancy agreement, along with a series of post-dated cheques for your anticipated occupancy fees, which will be delivered by your lawyer to Petretta’s solicitor.

When Do I Get My Keys? +

Keys are given to you on the date that you take possession of your new home, and are part of the closing package you receive.  Included in your closing package are any keys/access fobs required for common areas, two sets of keys to your home, two mailbox keys and more.

When Is Final Closing? +

Final closing is the date upon which you will receive title to your home (unit), and will occur after the condominium (including all requisite by-laws) has been registered.

What Happens On Final Closing? +

On final closing, the purchase and sale transaction governed by your agreement of purchase and sale will be completed in accordance with the statement of adjustments prepared by Petretta, in order to account for outstanding occupancy fees, realty taxes, common expenses, etc. At this time, your lawyer will receive a deed/transfer of title to your home (for ultimate registration), in exchange for your payment of the outstanding balance of the purchase price.

How Is My Moving Day Established? +

The moving process is scheduled in an orderly fashion. It usually starts with lower floors and proceeds to the top floor.  During the move-in process, corridors and lobby areas may remain unfinished, as the final touches are postponed until the majority of homes are occupied, to avoid damage to the final finishes.

Do I Need To Buy Property Insurance? +

Yes, as the homeowner, it is your responsibility to obtain a condominium homeowner’s insurance package that covers contents and betterments, which the Condominium Corporation does not provide.
