Other common costs:

Real Property Report ("RPR")

RPRs are commonly required to be provided by the vendor evidencing, among other things, that the building and improvements to the lands are properly placed. The cost of an RPR usually ranges from $600.00 to $700.00 and a Compliance Stamp from the City of Calgary is usually $150.00. Outside of Calgary the costs are higher.

Estoppel Certificate

If the property is a condominium, the cost for an Estoppel Certificate, all required condominium documents and the review of same are a potential additional cost of purchasing a condominium.

Commercial Real Estate requires a consultation with a lawyer for an estimate of fees for our services. Given the extensive work that may be required a retainer may be requested.
