What is an assignment in property law?

Assignment is a legal term whereby an individual, the “assignor,” transfers rights, property, or other benefits to another known as the “assignee.” This concept is used in both contract and property law. The term can refer to either the act of transfer or the rights/property/benefits being transferred.

Can builder deny assignment?

Many builders can also withhold the assignment clause as per their agreement. Whether you are moving into the property or purchasing a condo for investment, it is advisable to get the agreement reviewed by a real estate lawyer.

Your Real Estate
Lawyer’s Role

When you buy an assignment property, your real estate lawyer deals with both the assignor and builder. Your lawyer pays the assignor their deposit back, plus or minus any profit or loss they made by selling their contract to you. Your lawyer then pays the builder the remaining amount you owe for the unit. Your lawyer will also coordinate receiving funds from your lender, if applicable and arrange to pay the land transfer taxes.
