RIVERSIDE MEADOWS – PHASE 1 – 58 Residential Lots
The City of Yorkton will be conducting a lot draw on Monday, August 25, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. local time in the Council Chambers located at 37 Third Avenue North, Yorkton, Saskatchewan to sell the 58 residential lots in the Riverside Meadows Phase 1 sub-division.
Lots will be offered for sale – 1 per Individual/Family or Contractor. The name appearing on the request for the lot draw will be the name placed on the Transfer of Title. The cost of Transfer of Title will be added to the price of the lot at the time of signing a Purchase Agreement and the City will then be responsible for the Transfer of Title upon payment in full of the lot. The cost of a Title Transfer as per Information Services Corporation is at a rate of 0.3% of the value of the property. Therefore if a lot is valued at $50,000.00 the cost to register the title would be $150.00.
