History of Little Britain 

Little Britain was established in 1834 by a man named Harrison Haight. He built the first mill in Little Britain in 1837. This mill, which stood until 1910, took nearly the whole countryside to build. At the time, there was no road that led from Little Britain to Oakwood, located 5 km to the north. In 1850 Christians came and built the first church. They were followed by the Bible Church in 1852. The Post Office came in 1853.

Names suggested for the town were Margaretville, after Margaret Metherell, and Elm Grove, proposed by the first postmaster, Robert Fergusson Whiteside. The latter was rejected by the post office because of duplication, so Whiteside named it after his place of origin, Little Britain in Pennsylvania 

Prominent members of the time included Joseph Maunder’s carriage and blacksmithing works, W.M Burden’s carriage shop, Edwin Mark’s foundry, Isaac Finley’s steam roller flour mill, Dr George Wesley Hall MD and the Davidson’s flour mill. The railway was brought into Lindsay around the turn of the century

 

Today 

Little Britain today is still a primarily agricultural town. It also has a fairly significant tourist presence from the influx of cottagers on nearby Lake Scugog, and from those who use Little Britain Road as a means to bypass heavy cottager summer traffic on Highway 7. For such a small town, Little Britain boasts a number of comfortable amenities including a restaurant, bakery, bank, library, grocery store, post office, park, arena and a country gift store as well as many other services. There is a gas bar, two auto repair shops, a drugstore and a medical office.

Now What ?? The Current Real Estate Market is Creating More Questions.

Another Great Article Written by Mark Weisleder

I found this article in my email this morning and thought it would be insightful to share. The article is written by Mark Weisleder who is a great real estate lawyer and author. He has articulated what is happening in this current real estate market and what buyers and sellers should be doing if they are faced with one of these situations.

Your buyer cannot sell their existing home, now what?

I am now being consulted by buyers who have purchased homes without any conditions and cannot sell their existing homes. This could be as a result of the recent government housing policy announcements, increased number of listings, uncertain lending conditions and fewer bidding wars. As such, you need to understand all the issues and consequences to provide timely advice and do what is necessary to protect your clients and your deals. Here are 5 things to understand:

1.) What if the buyer cannot close?

If the buyer cannot close, they will likely forfeit their deposit and be subject to a lawsuit from the seller, for the difference in the sale price if the seller now sells the property for a lower price than the buyer agreed to pay.

2.) What are some options available to the buyer?

One option is to approach the seller and request an extension of their own purchase agreement, so that they have more time to sell their existing home without panicking. Another option is to sell or assign their agreement to a third party buyer, to have another buyer take over their agreement, pay them back their deposit, and close directly with the seller.

3.) Do you need the seller permission to assign this agreement to another buyer?

Under the terms of the OREA re-sale agreement, no permission is required. However, it is best to be up front and work with the seller for a number of reasons. The seller salesperson could have a list of buyers who have already seen the property who may be willing to take over this deal. In addition, any new buyer would want to see the home and since your client does not yet own it, they have no right to show the home. By obtaining the assistance of the seller, you can show the home and hopefully arrange for a new potential buyer to take over.

4.) Who will pay the real estate commission?

The real estate commission will still have to be paid on both transactions. Therefore, the original buyer will likely have to sell for more than they paid, just to break even. In my experience, this should be made clear when trying to arrange this with the original seller, that the buyer will not be making any profit on this re-sale, and is just looking for someone to take over their purchase obligation.

5.) Who pays land transfer tax?

Land Transfer tax will only be paid once in this scenario, by the new buyer who finally closes the transaction with the seller.

In my experience, it is best to deal with all these issues early in the process, by being up-front and honest with your seller and finding a solution that works for everyone. By working together, you can likely reduce the potential losses on all sides and in most cases, complete the transaction to the satisfaction of everyone.
