About Life Lease

Residents purchase the exclusive right to occupy an apartment for the rest of their lives. After paying an initial life-lease payment, monthly fees will pay for the operation and maintenance of the building, as well as amenities.

The Bethany Group will register a mortgage for each purchaser to fully protect their interests and security. If a resident requires a higher level of care than can be offered at Brookside, The Bethany Group will work with them to find a more appropriate home.

The full value of the life-lease payment will be returned within a set time frame when the life-lease interest is relinquished.

For more information about what Life-Lease is, please visit the Life Lease Housing Resource Guide put out by the Government of Ontario.
