Twelve Stone Group began as a custom builder honing our attention to detail. Every home we build is distinguished by our quality, superior construction and exceptional craftsmanship. When you buy a Twelve Stone home, you know that it is unique and we are with you every step of the way to make your dream home a reality.

No, however, financial planning is essential to the home buying process. With your purchase and sale agreement, you will have a deposit structure with dates and deposit amounts to adhere to and a final amount due upon closing.

No. Once signed, your agreement is firm and binding. At Twelve Stone, our staff will never pressure you into purchasing a home, therefore when you sign your agreement, it is our expectation that you will follow through with the contract.

Our sales team provides a detailed list of all additional costs that you can budget for on closing. These costs could be: land transfer tax, legal fees and adjustments, mortgage broker fees, Tarion Enrolment Fees, water meter and gas meter fees, top coat of driveway fee, property tax adjustment etc.

For safety reasons, during construction we do not allow people on the property. However, we do set appointments to walk you through your home at various points in the home building process so that you can see the progress as it occurs.

The solicitors for both parties, along with the financial institution will work together to attain the legal, mortgage and municipal sign offs required. Typically the registration of the home in the clients name occurs in the afternoon and therefore the keys for your new home are released to you at the construction trailer for pickup. Due to the many factors at play on closing day, it is not uncommon for the release of keys to occur very late in the day. For this reason, we recommend not scheduling your moving company until much later in the day.

All of the information regarding your Tarion Warranty for new home construction is available to you through Tarion’s MyHome Portal. Before you take possession of the home, we will do a Pre-Delivery Inspection. This occurs 5 to 10 days prior to possession and we will strive to complete most of the items on your list before you move in. After occupancy of the home, a 30-day form is available for you to add any items that you may notice while living in the home. Tarion rules state that a builder has 120 days to complete the items on either list. The final opportunity to conclude additional repairs is known as the Year End List, which you may submit 12 months after possession.
