|In order to access the CITÉ+ system, clients must confirm that they have read, understood and accepted the provisions of this contract by clicking on the button “I agree”.
Since access to the CITÉ+ website is reserved exclusively for real estate experts, all new clients must indicate in the registration form in what capacity they wish to access it (real estate agent, architect, lawyer, developer, mortgagee, certified evaluator, notary, etc.) and must provide, within thirty (30) days of registration, certification proving their status as real estate specialists to the following address:
Ville de Montréal - Cité+
Clients who fail to meet this requirement will be refused access to the CITÉ+ service, and neither the fees paid for their registration nor the amount of the deposit they made in their customer accounts will be refunded to them.
Annual registration fees of $135 must be paid at the time of registration. These fees are non-refundable.
Fees of $6.25 are required on every transaction. They are paid at the time of the request and drawn from the balance of the customer account. The balance of the customer account is displayed online, and the fees are debited in real time.
Prior to the very first request, the customer account must have a balance of no less than $20. The deposit in the client account is non-refundable.
Clients may consult their account statement online to see details of transactions, such as date of each request, account number and type of account, etc.
The City reserves the right to modify the amount of fees related to CITÉ+ use. Any modification of annual registration fees will come into effect the following January 1st. Any other modification will come into effect within thirty (30) days of the notice.
