Recently bought a condo with my husband and upon final payment we discovered that the condo maintenance fee was about 15% higher than what the seller agent told us it was.

In all honesty, the actual figure is not that much more, but its really the principal of the whole thing that bugs me. Either the seller/seller agent giving a misleading figure to encourage buyers to purchase their property.

Anyway our first property bought and lesson learnt for the future. I know it sounds like common sense but just a timely reminder to double check everything the seller agent claims and get it in writing!

Needless to say, I wont be recommending that ERA agent to any of my friends.
