I’m selling my home

Last reviewed in October 2018 by the Clicklaw Editors

Selling your home is one of the biggest financial transactions of your life. It is one that may include a number of legal aspects, such as an agreement with the realtor listing your home, a contract with the eventual purchaser of your home, and mortgage arrangements.

Good starting points include:

  • Selling Your House, from People's Law School, has basic information about listing arrangements, agent commissions, issues if you have a mortgage, and what is included in the sale.
  • Selling a Home in British Columbia, from the Real Estate Council of BC, describes the process of selling a home, including your relationship with the real estate licensee, listing contracts, offers to purchase, and completing the sale.
