Delivery of the final version of the photos is done the day after the appointment before noon, if no development problem is encountered, except for Saturday appointments which are delivered on Monday before noon.
For a 3D or a Video, additional time is allocated to the photographer depending on the size of the property. Additional fees may be charged at Immophoto's discretion. For 3D or videos, a delay of 24-48 working hours following the appointment is expected.
For aerial photos, the processing time is the same as regular photos.
All appointments are charged to your credit card upon delivery of the photos. If a payment does not go through the photos will not be accessible.

Copyright law was amended in the spring of 2012, by Bill C-11, rectifying the injustice that had prevailed until then, when the copyright of photographs subject to order belonged by default to the customer.
Canadian photographers are now the primary copyright owners of the images they produce, by default, as are illustrators, musicians, painters, and writers, among others. This applies as much to photographs commissioned by a client and paid for by the latter as to photographs taken outside of a commercial context.
Consequently, it is no longer necessary for photographers to have their commercial clients sign an agreement stipulating that the photographer is the first copyright holder of the work produced; the law now guarantees them this property by default. In addition, no use is possible without the written consent of the copyright holder.
