Last week, I wrote an article about how you should never trust a realtor. I don’t want to be mean but I truly have the feeling they are they only for their pay check. Technically, they are not responsible of anything and they don’t have to do follow-up with clients (since they will probably forget about their name at the time of selling their property 10 years later!).
So today, I’m doing a follow-up on my certificate of localization story. After writing this post, I came into my office, closed my door and started to call everybody.
Note to myself: trying to solve a bureaucratic problem on a sunny Friday morning is a lot of work!
I started with the company who did the certificate of localization to know what were my options and to see if the 12cm could be argued based on the fact that the pool was at 1,5m and its last pole was at 1.38cm…
The receptionist told me that all their experts were either not working or on the road (read they were having a coffee and donuts right behind her but didn’t care to pick up the phone because it’s Friday!). So I couldn’t get any help from them until Monday… Fine!
Then I call the notary to advise her of the situation. I must admit that I was very tempted to “hide” this glitch and just put the certificate of localization in an envelope and give it to her saying “everything is fine”. I thought I had good chances that she would not even take a look at it (I don’t trust notaries either… lol!). But I have figured that I was better off telling her what was the problem upfront in order to avoid further (bigger) problems with my buyers (who are seeking for money back on holes in the doors!).
The notary told me that she would give me her opinion once she has received the certificate but didn’t seem to be worried too much about the pool. She told me that it was quite frequent and not to worry about it… right…
Since I wasn’t satisfied, I have decided to give a call to the municipality in order to prepare myself for a minor derogatory. I spoke with the guy at the city and he asked me if I had a inground or outground pool (huh?). It appeared that the 1.50m rule was for inground pool only and that outground pool has to be at 1.00m from the fence… HURRAY!
So all this to tell you that I will still sell my house on time and I will not have to move my pool around! I guess that you are never better served than by yourself 😉
