Multiple Offers

In Alberta, a seller is not obligated to disclose the existence of other offers to potential buyers. While some sellers may choose to share this information with potential buyers, it is not a legal requirement. The decision to disclose other offers is typically left to the discretion of the seller with further disucssion with their real estate agent.

However, it is important for buyers to understand that the process of buying a property can be competitive, and that multiple offers on a property are not uncommon. In these cases, the seller may choose to negotiate with multiple potential buyers and select the best offer.

It is also important for buyers to understand that the information provided by the seller and their real estate agent is not always complete or accurate. Buyers should do their own research and due diligence when buying a property to ensure that they have all of the information they need to make an informed decision. This may include obtaining a home inspection, reviewing property records, and consulting with a real estate attorney.
