For those in Whitby Meadows, I just got a notice stating my closing will be delayed from June to October 2019. The builder is Fieldgate Homes.

Looks like some work has been done. No idea when it’d be ready.

Hi Dealhunter, when is your closing date?
My closing date is May 18th. I purchased in Phase 1. We haven't had our framing walk through yet. It seems like your house is far ahead than ours so I'm just trying to get some idea as to if we'll be delayed yet again (which will be our 4th one, if so). Thanks.

Hey andrincountrylaneph1, were in the exact same boat as you with our place closing May 23rd. I phoned Andrin customer service today to see if they’re expecting another delay. They told us they’re still on track to close but again our house hasn’t been bricked yet and we haven’t gone through our walk through at country lane yet. We are just trying to set a time line to list our current place, but I won’t put the for sale sign up until that 89th day knowing Andrin will close on our date. We have also been delayed 3 times so I know exactly how you’re feeling!

If you guys are delayed for more than 2 times, isn't the builder supposed to give you compensation?

Yes if we get delayed one more time i believe we get paid $150 a day plus any expenses like storage they pay for.

I think you guys are entitle for the compensation now.

1) The First Tentative Closing Date: the date originally signed on the purchase agreement;

2) Second Tentative Closing Date: aka. the first delay;

3) Firm Closing Date: aka. the second delay;

If the Vendor cannot close by the Firm Closing Date, then the Purchaser is entitled to delayed closing compensation (see section 7 of the Addendum) and the Vendor must set a Delayed Closing Date.

Our first closing date with andrin is June 20 2019. We visited the site over the weekend and nothing going on on our lot - which means delay 100% . I am surprised that they haven’t communicated an early delay notice yet . Guess have to wait till three months before closing date to get this letter .

Others were notified before three months on their delay

Original date to close was November 23,2018
First delay date to March 23rd, 2019
Second delay date (firm closing date) May 23,2019

Therefore if I don’t hear from Andrin by February 23,2019 (90 days within set closing date) our house should close on time. We all know that builders don’t want to be paying out of pocket so they will do anything and everything to close on our second delay date.

Hi Andrin purchasers,
Refer to the dates outlined in your agreement of purchase and sale for the trigger dates to see if you are eligible for compensation. I would also take a look at the legislation. I can tell you from experience that even if you may be entitled to compensation, Tarion really puts you through the ringer before they payout so I suggest you hold on to any receipts for the period of time in question. I read somewhere that the president of Andrin sits on the board of directors for Tarion so it'll be interesting when we have to submit any claims under Tarion (ie PDI or 30 day warranty, etc.).

On a personal note, I was told that I can expect to close as scheduled in mid-May 2019 (this is an extended closing date). My framing walk through has not yet been scheduled. My house is bricked, the windows and doors are installed and we can see that there is framing completed. We don't know about electrical and plumbing. I will update the group once they contact me to arrange the walk through.

shouldn't they suppose to give you frame walk through before the house is bricked ? With my previous builder we were given frame walk through and we found a lot of issues for which it was possible to correct before they put the bricks outside and dry walls inside. ( issues such as wrong place for plugs, light fixtures etc - this can be fixed prior to any dry walls and bricks) i just hope that Andrin don't just walk away from the frame walk through :)

This suggests that half of GTA real estate buyers from 2014-2018 were first time buyers.
It also shows 60% had a household income <100k.

they draw the conclusion that measures to increase affordability for first time buyers wouldn't boost the market much. This is probably wrong because they're not isolating the post B-20 data.

The income level is more interesting to me. I'd like to see what numbers look like post B20. I'm betting after B20 a whole lot more buyers had household incomes over 100k.
