What is Land Lease ?

In a land lease community, residents have the unique opportunity to own their homes while leasing the land it occupies from the landlord. This innovative arrangement brings forth a host of benefits that make land lease communities an attractive choice for individuals and families alike.


Not only do residents have the freedom to bring their own homes onto vacant lots or purchase pre-existing homes within the community, but they also have the option to rent homes already situated in the area. This versatility provides a range of choices to suit different preferences and needs. The benefits of land lease living extend beyond mere flexibility. One of the most significant advantages is the reduced cost of ownership. By separating the expense of the land lease from the home itself, residents can enjoy a more affordable living situation compared to traditional homeownership, allowing them to allocate their finances more effectively. 


Land lease communities also come with a strong sense of community and amenities tailored to residents’ needs, such as walking trails, playgrounds, and other shared spaces. This fosters a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, where neighbours become friends, creating a true sense of belonging.
