Certificate of Property Ownership ... Tips for Ontarians.

Good Grief!  Can paper work get any more tedious?  The City Clerk didn't put our middle names on it. Why?  Because we didn't use our middle names when we purchased our home, they did use the information from their tax roll information (MPAC), which had evertyhing on it. So yes, using that information they were willing to do up a letter of Property Ownership. 

However, our middle names weren't on the letter.  We don't know yet if this will be a problem or not, the city clerk wasn't able to speak with us so we are left hanging till Monday.  A new letter must be redone which includes our middle names.  We are really keeping our fingers crossed that they will accept our ID and add our full names to the letter.  Otherwise, we need to go through the entire process of having our deed of ownership changed to include our full names, and have it resubmitted to MPAC who will then submit it to the Clerk so we can have our full names on the letter.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that this isn't the case, and a meeting with the clerk is all we need to verify that we are who we say we are.

As much of a pain it is getting this letter done, I have to say the people that have been involved with it have been completely wonderful.  I think I am going to need to purchase a handful of thank you cards.  There are a lot of people who have gone out of their way help us get what we need.  

Many thanks to them all!
