Q: I am in the process of helping my daughter buy a condo, here is what we have done so far:We signed the mortgage with her as primary and me as co-signer, I will be giving her the down payment and she is going to be living there and she will be the one paying the mortgage and all expenses. My question is what would be the best way to do this transaction looking it at both a legal and tax perspective.
Q: I have purchased a new home and have moved into it. I have finished part of the basement into a legal suite. I have not rented it out yet. My question is, if I rent the suite out will I be able to claim the primary residence tax exemption when I sell my home? A: Congratulations Donna and Gerry on both your new home and becoming landlords! What exciting steps to take towards your personal financial goals.
Today the Bank of Canada chose to leave the overnight rate at 1%. Economists and the markets expected this no-change in interest rates stance, as BoC’s Governor, Stephen Poloz, had hinted that economic growth was on target and while the central bank was keeping an eye on inflation there was no immediate concern, as yet.
@BullinaChinaShp@BenChimes@seemsbusy Actually you do. FSBO. But in order for it to be totally agent and commission free the seller must also opt out of the current process. Now ask any seller if they want to do that...the vast majority don't. It's why RE auctions haven't taken off in Canada.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
