How to Prevent Title Fraud

In September 2021, two people were caught impersonating the owners of a home in the Etobicoke area. They had hired a real estate agent and put the house up for sale. These individuals successfully sold the home, and new homeowners arrived to take possession of the property. Later, the original homeowners came home from their vacation to discover that their house had been sold without their consent.

Incidents like these, known as title fraud, are not common, but they can be unfortunate situations where the innocent family ends up paying – even when they haven’t done anything wrong.

In this blog, we explain what title fraud is and share some prevention tips.

How Do Speeding Tickets Affect Insurance?

In Ontario, speeding tickets may affect the premiums you pay for your auto insurance. The “severity” of a speeding ticket may be assessed based on how much faster than the posted limit you were driving. How much your insurance rate increases will vary depending on the number of speeding tickets on your record and the severity of your traffic violations.

We explain how much your premiums may increase as a result of a speeding ticket in this blog.
