Foreigners investing in Canada

by Michelle
(South Africa)

Good Afternoon,

I would like some information of investing in property in Canada. Are foreigners allowed to purchase property there. If so, are there any restrictions on them (such as minimum spend, or must be through a company, etc)? Secondly, how long must one wait before selling a property again? Some countries allow you to sell the property after the sales agreement has been signed and before transfer, others only allow a property to be resold after 3 years.

Kind Regards

Unfortunately we're not versed in foreign buyers purchasing in Canada. A good real estate lawyer is the way to go. Sorry we couldn't be more help!!
