When you buy your house, don’t pay for the building materials
When you build your house or apartment, don’ t pay for construction materials.
Instead, buy the materials yourself.
That’s what the Ontario Building Regulations require for new construction and for existing structures.
If you have a new home or apartment and are still paying for the materials, you can’t apply for the new permits, the regulations say.
To be clear, the Building Standards and Standards for New Homes and Apartments doesn’t require that you pay for materials.
That’s a provincial regulation.
The regulations also prohibit contractors from using materials for other purposes, such as making furniture.
It’s not clear whether this means contractors cannot use materials for decorating, making new carpets or for new bathrooms.
But, under the regulations, they can’t use materials such as concrete or plaster for walls.
Construction of new homes is not permitted.
It’s a federal offence to build, install or occupy a home without permission.
The Building and Building Regulations also ban construction in certain locations, including on private property, where people cannot walk on sidewalks.
In addition to the provincial and federal regulations, the City of Toronto is also looking into whether building materials are being used improperly in its homes.
“There has been a lot of concern and concern that the City is not enforcing its requirements in some of its properties,” said city manager Rob Carrick.
Carrick said the city has not seen any enforcement action from its building inspectors.
As a result, Carrick said, the city is not yet investigating any complaints against the construction of a new building.
