An Assignment Sale in the Pre-Construction Market

In other words, an assignment sale is thesale – or “assignment” of a contract to buy a pre-construction condominium suite. An assignment sale usually happens before the condo has been registered, so no one can own the unit itself. The only thing that can be sold is the contract.

When you buy a pre-construction condominium unit, you receive an assignment clause/right to sell in the form of a contract. You can decide to sell your assignment even before the condominium is constructed.

  • The Assignee is not purchasing the property from the Assignor. Instead, the Assignee is obtaining the right to buy the property from a third party, such as a builder.
  • The Assignor is authorizing the transfer of its interest and rights in the Original Agreement with the Builder (or original seller) to another party.
  • The Assignor is assigning its interest in the original deposit to the Assignee.
  • The Assignee agrees to take on all the duties of the original contract from the Assignor.

The many benefits of contract sales exist for both the buyer and seller before a building is even constructed and registered.

This article will explore assignment sales, from why they are used to the process of making this type of transaction and how it can be transferred.

Is It Worth It to Purchase an Assignment?

You may be able to find some of the best deals on condos in the GTA by looking for assignment sales. These types of sales typically have fewer buyers because many real estate agents aren’t familiar with them and don’t bother to advertise these listings.

Assignment sales are often foregone by potential buyers because they are not fully understood. Lack of Knowledge about the process can cause people to overpay for their suite due to bidding wars amongst other things. By opting into an assignment sale, you have the opportunity to avoid all that extra competition and pay much less than what you would for a resale unit.

The condo market benefits both the buyer and the seller in multiple ways. The seller can list their unit earlier, and the buyer can save time and money.

An assignment agreement also has the perk of receiving a unit that is brand-new and automatically registered under the seven-year Tarion Warranty Program. Also, you’ll be able to move in much sooner than if you were waiting for the building completion which could take 3 to 4 years!

A Look at Mississauga’s New Pre-Construction Condos

Mississauga is Canada’s one of the largest cities. It has become a vibrant economic and cultural hub, and It offers a variety of living experiences through its increasing stock of condos and homes.

About Mississauga

Mississauga is surrounded by beautiful Lake Ontario shorelines, home to many waterfront condos and homes. The old village of Port Credit was transformed into a pedestrian-friendly shopping district. The Square One Shopping Centre is located further north on Hurontario Street, the city’s main thoroughfare. It also houses a large number of corporate headquarters. A string of communities along the Credit River to the west provide a family-friendly, lush living environment. In the city’s northwest corner is the former village of Streetsville. There are also several shopping centers and recreational areas scattered throughout the community.

Mississauga Transportation

MiWay is the city’s transit agency and offers a wide range of bus routes. Many use the Mississauga Transitway, which provides increased frequency and reliability. The Transitway runs approximately from Pearson Airport to Winston Churchill Boulevard via Square One. It is served by both GO Transit or MiWay routes. GO offers rail service to the area. The Lakeshore West runs parallel to Lake Ontario and offers high-quality service seven days per week. The Milton Line runs through the city’s centre and western reaches and offers ten round trips on weekdays. As well, the opening of the Hurontario LRT in 2024 provides transit access for those commuting from north to south in Mississauga. There are four major highways – Highway 401, Highway 403, Highway 407 and Highway 410 – all crossing through the Mississauga city.
