Is it a Chattel or a Fixture? What’s the difference?

The question whether an item is a chattel or a fixture has caused many differences/disputes between sellers and buyers. In order to answer the question is this item a chattel or a fixture lets take a look at the definition of a chattel and a fixture as defined by the Real Estate Encyclopedia (Canadian Edition – OREA):

  • Chattel: Are the moveable possessions and personal property. Usually items that can be removed without injury to the freehold estate.
  • Fixture: An improvement or item of personal property on the real property becomes a fixture when it is so attached to the real property or building that it becomes part of it.

In other words a Fixture is a physical property that is permanently attached or fixed to real property (i.e. furnace, air conditioner, light fixtures, sinks, toilets etc). Generally they are considered part of the sale and included in the purchase price unless it is specifically mentioned and excluded in the Agreement of Purchase & Sale (i.e. dining room chandelier, curtain rods etc).

A Chattel can be converted to a fixture by the process of attachment. For example, if you have lumber sitting in your backyard – that is a chattel, now if you use it to build a fence, it becomes a fixture (to the real property). Another example can be of a furnace – it is a chattel before it is installed, once you have installed it, it becomes a fixture (connected to the floor,  electrical system, duct work etc). Generally speaking, Chattels are the moveable possessions like window coverings, fridge, stove, washer, dryer etc. Chattels are usually not included in the sale price of the home unless stated in the Agreement of Purchase & Sale (it must clearly be identified in the Agreement of Purchase and Sale – as to what is and what is not included).

In order to have a smooth trouble free transaction don’t assume anything, identify the chattels you want on the Agreement of Purchase & Sale and also identify the Fixtures that are excluded from the transaction on the Agreement of Purchase & Sale.

Additional Costs When Buying a Home

Additional Costs When Buying a Home

The purchase price of your home is only one of the costs you’ll encounter. Here are other possible costs you need to consider:

•Mortgage loan insurance: If you are putting less than 20 per cent of the house value down, you’re going to need mortgage loan insurance. Depending on the lender, the premium can be added to mortgage payments.

•Appraisal fee: Lenders typically loan a percentage of the home’s purchase price or the market appraisal of the property. Cost depends on the size and complexity of the assignment.

•Land survey: The lender may ask for a current survey or certificate of location before signing off on the loan. There can be a substantial cost for having a new survey done on the property.

•Deposit: A deposit normally goes with the formal offer to purchase.

•Insurance: The lender will require proof of property insurance for the replacement value of the house and its contents from the day you take ownership.

•Title insurance: Provides coverage in case of problems with the property title among other things. The cost is relatively low, usually a few hundred dollars.

•Application fee: Some lenders will pass on the cost to process your application. These fees vary and some lenders will waive entirely if you have other accounts with them.

•Mortgage broker’s fee: If you use a mortgage broker, a fee may be charged to arrange a mortgage on your behalf.

•Home inspection fee: An inspection protects the buyer by revealing any problems in the property that you’d want to know before you move in.

•Legal fees: You can save some of the legal fees usually charged by the lender if your lawyer draws up the mortgage. You’ll also pay for disbursements which are the costs involved in drawing up the title deed, conducting a title search, and preparing and registering the mortgage.

•Land Transfer Tax: Accessible from the home page (left menu) of my website http://www.roubledhaliwal.com to calculate your Ontario land transfer taxes.

•Harmonized Sales Tax: Resale (used) homes are exempt from HST but it does apply to newly constructed homes. Although HST is exempt from Resale homes but it will apply to Real Estate Commissions, Lawyer Fee, Home Inspection, Appraisal Costs etc.

•On new homes over $400,000 additional tax only applies to the portion of the price above $400,000. For example, if a new home was priced at $450,000, additional tax would only be applicable on $50,000. Buyers of new homes receive a rebate of up to $24,000 regardless of the price of the new home.

•Other costs: These include moving costs, fees charged by utilities for service hook-ups, property tax and other adjustments (an adjustment takes place when the seller has already paid for something in advance and wants to be credited for the unused portion on the date the house becomes yours), and ongoing maintenance (condo fees etc) and utility costs.
