Ian Watt: Hi Good Afternoon, its Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. The thing what we have to remember is when you going to purchase a property you gotta look very closely to a property disclosure statement to see if there any alterations done and alterations I mean flooring, knocking down walls whatever you think of. Alterations in the suite if any of them have been done with the permit or approval from the strata council because you know what? If you buy that place and it's got fifteen thousand dollars worth of flooring and they didn't get a permit to do it. Chances are they might have been ripped out check with the strata council, check with the seller and make sure that they have approval and make them prove it. My name is Ian Watt and if you have any questions regarding this alterations. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
