Calgary Urban Living Completes Course On Effect Of Flooding On Calgary Condos
The 2013 flood affected many people and their homes. Calgary Urban Living is prepared to provide you with the most knowledgeable service when it comes to flood affects and the best real estate experience in Calgary.
The course highlighted many aspects, including of how to determine if a property is located in the flood zone area. It also discussed the due diligence activities required when dealing with a property located in the flood hazard area. These due diligence activities affect buyers, sellers, landlords, as well as tenants. The course also covered new policies that arose as a result of the 2013 Alberta floods.
In response to the 2013 flooding, a government disaster recovery program (DRP) was set up. This is a temporary program set up to provide financial assistance to individuals and organizations for uninsurable damage, loss, and other expenses.
The downtown Calgary condo market was considerably affected by the 2013 floods. Many of the buildings were located in the floodway or flood fringe areas. The DRP funding was used to repair and restore properties in these areas.
There are a number of due diligence activities realtor’s can provide to their clients. These activities can vary depending on whether the client is a buyer, seller, landlord, or tenant. Based on these activities conducted by realtors, their clients can make an informed decision and provide instructions on how they would like to proceed with the transaction.
It is important to note that realtors cannot provide an opinion as to what a client should or should not do. Clients wishing to obtain this type of opinion will be advised to seek advice from the appropriate expert in the field.
Calgary Urban Living looks forward to assisting their clients who will be dealing with flood related properties. The knowledge acquired from the course, combined with the checklists they will be using, will ensure our clients best interests are represented.
