Close your commercial deal with confidence: our solution to potential municipality office closures

Dear valued partners,

FCT is committed to finding ways to help both commercial and residential real estate deals close despite the current situation.

One particular area of concern for commercial transactions is the possible closure of municipal offices. If any of these offices close, it could cause delays in receiving responses to important inquiries, such as work order searches, real property taxes and municipal agreement compliance.

To prepare for the possibility of these situations, FCT has put in place new and flexible underwriting procedures to help you close your commercial real estate deals even if municipal offices are forced to shut their doors.

To help you keep track of recent updates and communications, FCT has launched the COVID-19 web page where you can easily access important information and resources, such as the following:

  • National extended gap coverage for your commercial transactions at no additional cost

Close with confidence

As many of you are aware, several provincial governments have released a list of essential services that will remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic and we want to reassure you that FCT is still operating during this time. We remain committed to providing a consistent level of service while supporting the health and safety of our customers, partners and employees.

FCT is keeping apprised of the rapidly changing situation across the country, and will continue to work with you to help get your deals closed.

In the event of any other unforeseen issues related to the COVID-19 outbreak, please call us at 1.866.804.3112, or 1.866.744.8962 in Quebec.
