For a smooth and secure real estate transaction
Ready to carry out one of the most important transactions in your life? Determining how to proceed is one of the first things to do.
Many options are available to you. You may do business with a real estate 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 by overseeing the activities of real estate brokers and providing protection mechanisms during a real estate transaction carried out by a broker.
If you elect to enlist the services of a broker, you will therefore be dealing with an intermediary who is duly authorized and supervised by the OACIQ.
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.
