RCMP Relocation Services
RCMP Relocation Services Assist RCMP Members with Making a Move
If you work for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and you need to relocate for the job, the RCMP relocation services helps make the process easy and affordable with several perks!
Jen Fuentes has assisted several RCMP members and their families with their relocation and can assure the transition to a new home is done efficiently.
A primary feature of RCMP relocation services is the reimbursement of costs for selling the current home and purchasing a new one. Some of the expenses covered are real estate commissions, legal fees, property transfer tax and potentially other items such as mortgage penalties, interest and fees for bridge loans, appraisals, termination of lease commitments and more. Each relocation is unique, and the RCMP relocation coordinator assigned to assist you through your relocation will help determine what additional expenses you are eligible to be covered for beyond the standard reimbursements the RCMP covers.
RCMP have an approved list of solicitors to assist you when selling your existing home and purchasing in the location you have been relocated to. Jen Fuentes works closely with the solicitor handling your purchase transaction to ensure a smooth and efficient completion.
In April 2017, the RCMP relocation process went thru some changes. The relocation is done internally with an RCMP relocation coordinator now, previously done through Brookfield, a relocation service provider for government employees hired by the RCMP. Moving to work internally there have been a few changes to the relocation program’s process. One of the changes includes advancing the funds that cover the home purchase costs such as legal fees, property transfer tax, appraisals etc directly to the RCMP member. The member than brings to their solicitor’s office at their signing appointment to complete the purchase transaction of their new home. This may seem like an insignificant change, however on the mortgage approval side of things, there is additional pieces of information required by the bank and mortgage insurance company when the money is advanced directly to the RCMP member rather than being sent direct to the solicitor. Jen Fuentes is familiar with the changes to the process and will assure the bank gets the required documents needed so there are no last-minute delays or added stress.
RCMP relocation services does a fantastic job easing the burden of moving for the members and their families. They also have an approved list of realtors that are familiar with the program and process. Jen Fuentes works closely with the realtors to assure there are no loose ends and to minimize the stress and eliminate any additional work for the RCMP member relocating.
