Default Minto - Avalon Encore

Anyone on here closing soon in Avalon Encore?

We just got delayed 30 days

How are some of the other houses that are closer to being finished?

What about single family homes?

A friend of mine bought a townhome there and had the PDI and close Wednesday. Not one room is done. Basement, stairs, second floor-there is no flooring installed. No kitchen counters, garage door or siding. Main bathtub not installed. En-suite shower not tiled. Painting not done, banisters, wet floors under the windows...and the list goes on.

Not good at all!

I mean, its possible. We were originally scheduled to closed end of March 2019, and we were delayed 30 days in early Feb.

I know minto experienced some serious delays a while ago, mostly to weather (so they say) and have been playing catchup ever since.

Got delayed again until end of May. Really such a shame as it looked like they were making some progress.

So 60 days (plus) meaning Minto starts dishing out some cash to you? Have Minto said anything about money to you yet?

We are getting the full $7,500 as per tarion since they didn't give us the notice within 90 days of the first tentative closing date.

Originally we were going to get $4,500 but getting delayed for another month gives us the full amount.

They state that they owe the money in the letter they send you informing of the delay. They also say we will get a cheque for the amount within 30 days after closing.
