Life Lease

  • Life Lease is different from outright purchase of a condominium in that residents are required to contribute only a portion of the cost or value of their apartment
  • The financial contribution is called the Entrance Fee. In return for the Entrance Fee the tenant is granted a lifetime lease on their chosen apartment
  • Tenants are responsible for paying a small monthly occupancy expense or rent to cover their share of the operating expenses
  • A Life Lease may be terminated by the tenant for any reason providing notice is given as stated in the agreement
  • When the lease is terminated the full Entrance Fee is refunded, less a small administration fee

Good Samaritan Independent Living also offers 40 apartments for those 60 years of age or older at Good Samaritan Place. Some low income seniors may be eligible for assistance with rent under the Alberta Seniors Benefit.
