Is this a 10 day backout clause?

New build, builder told me there was no 10-day with detached home construction

In reading the paper work at home I saw this

Seems to be 10 day cooling period, but also mentions the vendor can make it an agreement if there was no prior notice?

Do i have 10 days or not to cancel and get my deposit back if i wanted ?

I am in Pickering, Ontario

Thanks

Pretty sure there is no 10 day cooling off period for detach.

Your lawyer should be reviewing the contract and advising you.

As Jaylove06 said there is no cooling off period for detached houses, there is a cooling off period for new condominiums, the detached can have a cooling off period only if there is a clause in the contract.
You need to talk to the lawyer asap to review the contract.

That is the time frame that the seller has to complete/accept the agreement. If the seller does not do anything then the purchaser can withdraw from the agreement.

It’s a clause saying your offer as a purchaser is irrevocable for 10 days.

It is possible for there to be a cooling off period for detached homes. All condominiums have to have a 10 day cooling off period. With the trend towards builders skimping on community amenities like road width where municipalities refuse to service them, many new detached home developments are now condominiums and have a cooling off period.

No. Not for you at least. It's for the vendor only. Vendor has ten days to reject it not you (purchaser)
