If you are unsure whether you meet the eligibility criteria, review the Eligibility Questionnaire in the section 'Apply' below.
The tenant must agree to enter into an Attainable Rental Housing Program Agreement and a Residential Tenancy Agreement with The Blue Mountains Attainable Housing Corporation.
The Program Agreement outlines the terms and conditions of the program specific to the Napier Street property. Program participants will continue to pay an Attainable Rent for as long as they qualify under the eligibility criteria. Eligibility will be reviewed annually and at any time a new adult occupant joins the household.
The Tenancy Agreement is the Standard Form of Lease as required by the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006. The rent in the Tenancy Agreement will be the Market Rent. Should a participant no longer qualify for the Attainable Rent under the Program Agreement, they may remain as a tenant but will be responsible for paying the Market Rent as set out in the Tenancy Agreement.
Napier Street is a cozy 3-bedroom house located close to the school, library, community centre and shops of Thornbury. The monthly Attainable Rent is $1,475 plus utilities.
