Tenders must be submitted using the prescribed form and must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a money order or of a bank draft or cheque certified by a bank or trust company payable to the City of Hamilton and representing at least 20% of the tender amount.

The municipality makes no representation regarding the title to or any other matters including any environmental concerns relating to the land to be sold. Any existing Federal or Provincial liens or executions will remain on title and may become the responsibility of the potential purchaser. Responsibility for ascertaining these matters rests with the potential purchasers. The municipality does not provide an opportunity for potential purchasers to view properties nor is it in a position to provide successful purchasers with a key or vacant possession.

This sale is governed by Part XI of the Municipal Act, 2001 and as amended by The Municipal Statute Law Amendment Act, 2002. The successful purchaser is required to pay any relevant federal or provincial taxes that may apply on closing (including land transfer tax and HST). Failure to complete the transaction by the successful bidder (highest or if failed, second highest bidder) will result in the forfeiture of their deposit.

The municipality has no obligation to provide vacant possession to the successful purchaser.
