Life Lease is an equity preservation model whereby adults over the age of 55 purchase the right to occupy a Garden Villa (townhome) or Atrium Suite (condominium). Our Life Lease complex, is comprised of a five-story building with 154 Atrium Suites and 72 Garden Villa townhomes located throughout the campus.
Atrium Suites & Garden Villas
Residents find Life Lease housing attractive because of the adult lifestyle, the sense of community, access to countless amenities and ability to be involved in the capital appreciation.
Our 154 classically designed and fully renovated Atrium Suites feature a variety of suite plans with a mix of terraces, balconies, and sunrooms. Special considerations include extra-wide corridors, spacious suite entrances, large updated kitchens and bathrooms and many other features that show attention to detail in both elegance and convenience.
Our 72 spacious and fully renovated Garden Villa townhomes feature a variety of floor plans with two and three bedroom options, accessible bungalow style living, with private patios, attached private single car garage, & updated kitchens.
Maintaining capital is important as we age, since personal needs may change unexpectedly, and the real estate market can be unpredictable. Our Village guarantees to buy-back your home within nine months of providing a notice to vacate. All refurbishing and marketing of the unit is coordinated by our team, making this option a care-free experience that brings peace of mind to both residents and their families.
Life Lease Occupancy Fees
Residents pay an occupancy fee to cover the costs of maintenance, property tax, insurance, management, lifestyle services and contribute to a reserve fund to cover capital replacements and major repairs.
Upon re-sale, the resident is entitled to a sum of money equal to the original purchase price plus one-half of the appreciation or depreciation. When a resident wishes to sell their Life Lease interest, they receive the market value less fees owed. It is the “market” that determines what the Life Lease interest is worth. As the market value of local real estate increases, so does the value of the Life Lease interest. Life Lease generally follows similar trends.

We are a newly retired couple in our 60’s and have recently downsized to a beautiful and spacious townhouse after selling our Toronto home. We love the quiet location across from the park with wonderful bike trails and easy walking access to stores and other amenities in nearby Uptown Waterloo.
