Subdivision Construction
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
What are Servicing and Development Agreements?
In Mississauga, a subdivision is made up of a Servicing Agreement and a Development Agreement. They are agreements between the Developer, the City and the Region of Peel concerning the subdivision in which your new home is located. A Development Agreement is registered against the title of the lot you purchased and contains warning clauses and conditions of Building Permit approval that may affect your lot and that you should be aware of. Your lawyer should brief you of any key clauses directly affecting your lot and, on closing, provide you with a copy of the Agreement. A Servicing Agreement contains all the plans and servicing requirements for the subdivision.
