Are you purchasing a house, a condo or any other property? Here are a few useful resources.

To get more information on the steps involved in purchasing a house, you can consult the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation Web site. The Régie du bâtiment du Québec also provides a few tips regarding the purchase of a new property. 

If you wish to do business with a real estate broker or agent, consult the Web site of the Organisme d’autoréglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec. There, you can find information on topics including the validity of a broker’s certificate, brokerage contracts and offers to purchase.

You can also consult a notary to get advice regarding real estate law. The Chambre des notaires provides a variety of information on its Web site. In particular, you will find the number for a free legal advice hotline (in French only).

You can get information regarding property evaluations from the l’Ordre des évaluateurs agréés du Québec.

Articles about housing and purchasing a property are also available in the Acheter une maison ou un condo section of the Protégez-Vous Web site.

Finally, you can consult the Association des consommateurs pour la qualité de la construction, a consumer association specializing in housing, construction and renovation.
