Qualification for Enrolment Application Forms

Once you decide you want to Sell and/or Build new homes, you must obtain approval to do so. In order to obtain approval, you must complete and submit a Qualification for Enrolment Application (QFE) and provide the applicable supporting documents for review.  For each QFE application, the vendor/builder will be required to provide their proposed construction plans for how many homes they plan to sell/build. Once your approved enrolment limits have been used, you will be required to submit further QFE applications for any additional homes you plan to sell/build.

Vendor Agreement

The Vendor Agreement sets out the obligations of the Vendor – the person who will be entering into sales of homes (land and dwelling) or agreeing to build a home on a person’s land under a construction contract. The Vendor is primarily liable for performance of the deemed statutory warranties provided by the vendor to homebuyers under the New Home Warranties Plan Act.

New Addenda Forms

Tarion and the Home Construction Regulatory Authority have developed an Addendum form for different types of new home purchases. It is the vendor’s obligation to ensure that every agreement of purchase and sale for a new home has the appropriate Addendum attached to it in accordance with the requirements set out in Regulations 892 and 165/08 to the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act.

What Addendum Forms Provide

Tarion and the Home Construction Regulatory Authority have developed an Addendum form for different types of new home purchases which among other things: 

  • Provides advice and cautions to the purchaser about rights and obligation under the New Home Warranties and Protection Plan;

  • Has a Statement of Critical dates that clarifies when the home is expected to be ready for occupancy;

  • Limits the vendor’s use of Early Termination Conditions in the purchase agreement;

  • Discloses information about the status of development approvals and the status of construction so the purchaser can better assess the risk that a delay may occur;

  • Has restrictions and processes for any delays that may occur;

  • Provides for compensation to purchasers where a delay occurs in excess of permitted delay;

    Sets an Outside Occupancy Date beyond which the purchaser has a right to terminate the transaction; and

  • Has summary sheets for closing costs and adjustments.
Forms for Purchase Agreements signed on/after February 1, 2021

New Addenda forms were approved as part of the recent changes to Regulation 165/08. Any purchase agreement signed on or after February 1, 2021 must use the new October 7, 2020 forms.

The October 7, 2020 forms referred to in Regulation 165/08 as amended are found here:

Pre-Delivery Inspection Forms

A pre-delivery inspection (PDI) is mandatory for all new homes enrolled with Tarion. The main purpose of the PDI is to document the condition of the home prior to possession or occupancy. The PDI is also an opportunity to acquaint your customer with their new home; review home maintenance procedures; discuss the warranty process and next steps for addressing items that require attention; and reinforce the positive relationship you have built with them.

Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) Form

The PDI Form is designed to capture deficiencies in the home at the time of possession, including items inside and outside the home that are incomplete, damaged, missing, or not operational, or items that cannot be assessed because they are obscured from view or are inaccessible.

You have the option to use Tarion's standard Pre-Delivery Inspection Form or your own PDI Form (provided it contains, at minimum, all of the information that is contained in Tarion's form). 

The completed PDI Form is a formal record of the home’s condition before the purchaser takes possession. It will be used as a reference for future warranty service requests. Be sure to complete the PDI Form clearly and ensure that the purchaser signs and initials any and all changes.

Appointment for Designate for the Pre-Delivery Inspection form

Purchasers who wish to send a designate in their place should complete Tarion’s Appointment of Designate for the Pre-Delivery Inspection Form and provide a copy to you before or at the PDI. This form authorizes the designate to sign and deliver documents on the purchaser’s behalf.

You may conduct a PDI without the purchaser present if you have made best efforts to arrange the inspection but neither the purchaser nor a designate can attend. Your best effort should include:

  • Contacting the purchaser well in advance to set up a mutually convenient time; 

  • Providing the purchaser with a few reasonable choices of date and time; and

  • Explaining to the purchaser that he/she can send a designate instead of attending personally.

If you conduct a PDI without the purchaser present, you should make note of this on the PDI Form as well as the Certificate of Completion and Possession.
