When you List your home with a Realtor there are 5 documents
you will be required to sign:
1.) WORKING WITH A REALTOR: An explanation of the relationship between yourself
and a Realtor and of the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
2.) FINTRAC: An individual Identification Information Record, which is required by the
Proceeds of Crime (money laundering) and terrorist Financing Act. This record must be
completed by the Realtor whether they act in respect to the purchase OR sale of real estate.
You will be required to show a current piece of picture ID.
3.) TITLE: This document from the Land Title office serves to verify the authorized
signing authority for the property. As a normal course of business I acquire a copy
of Title before a Listing appointment to ensure that I am speaking with the primary
stakeholder. Initialling Title at time of Listing is a means to indicate that there are no
impending changes of which a Buyer would not otherwise be aware.
4.) MULTIPLE LISTING CONTRACT: The actual Listing Contract which describes
the terms and duration of the Contract. Every Realtor has their own "Schedule A"
which describes their personal responsibilities to the Seller.
This is included as part of the Contract.
5.) PDS (Property Disclosure Statement). To be filled out by the Seller which describes,
to the best of their ability, information regarding the property in the Listing Contract.
If you would like to review any or all of these Documents in their entirety,
please email/call me and I will forward a draft copy.
