lodging, the Purchaser has: a) made available for tender to the Vendor that portion of the Purchase Price
due on completion less the net proceeds of the new mortgage, and b) fulfilled all of the new mortgagee’s
conditions for funding except lodging of the mortgage for registration, and c) made available to the Vendor
a lawyer’s or notary’s undertaking to pay the balance due on completion upon the lodging of the transfer
and new mortgage documents and the advance by the mortgagee of the mortgage proceeds.
