CMHC Guide to Buying a Condo PDF Print E-mail

We found this guide useful for those who are thinking of purchasing a condominum.  The Canadian Housing and Mortgage Corporation (CMHC) provides a thorough 43 page guide to help you consider all aspects of a condo.

Condominium living is a popular option for many Canadians as it can be a relatively carefree housing option. Currently, in some parts of the country, one out of three new homes built is a condominium. Interest in condominiums tends to grow with a shortage of rental accommodation, relatively low mortgage interest rates, and urban core renewal. Most major newspapers now include a condominium section which recognizes the increasing number of people who already live in—or aspire to live in—a condominium. This Guide has been created to help you become an informed condominium buyer and to help you make the best choice. Please see the glossary at the end of the Guide for full definitions of some of the terms used in this guide.
