For a worry-free transaction
That’s it! You are now ready to carry out one of the most important transactions in your life. Among all the questions you will ask and all the decisions you will make, determining the method of proceeding you prefer is one of the first things to do.
Indeed, many options are available to you when selling, buying, leasing or financing a property. You may do business with a real estate or mortgage broker, enlist the services of a real estate company or carry out the transaction on your own.
The OACIQ respects your freedom to choose the model that suits you. The important thing is to know when you are protected by the Real Estate Brokerage Act and when you are not.
Under its public protection mission, the OACIQ enforces this Act whose aim is to regulate the real estate and mortgage broker profession and provide protection mechanisms during a real estate transaction carried out by a broker.
If you elect to do business with a broker, you will therefore be dealing with a professional who is duly authorized and supervised by the OACIQ and will benefit from protection mechanisms.
Commercial brokerage is a world all of its own which requires specific knowledge. The steps of a commercial transaction are not the same as those of a residential transaction. The OACIQ helps you see your way clear.
