Illegal Real Estate Signs

Real estate signs in our neighbourhood (not temporary advertising of an open house) fastened to official city traffic signs or posted on public property not associated with the premises for sale, are in contravention of Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 693, Section 21 A. (2). Another common sign by-law infraction is a real estate agent who leaves the sold sign up on private property long after the 30 day limit contravening 693, Section 21 A. (3).

Please contact and have the city remove the aforementioned signs.
