CO-OP Mortgages are different than a lease hold due to the fact you are buying shares in a company which owns the land and the building

CO-OP Pros

CO-OP are located in great locations, vastly cheaper than strata properties, with lower maintenance and taxes and significantly larger square footage. Usually no Property Purchase tax paid.

Cons of Co-op

Mortgage Lenders are limited and will require a 35% down payment (HSBC, Prospero, Canadian Western Bank) it is best to consult a mortgage broker to package you application correctly for best results, and expect to pay ½-2% above posted rates. Generally it is safe to say: no children, limited (board approval) for pets, and no washer/dryers en suite (shared laundry), and no rentals, limited parking is available and participation required!!

The majority of co-ops are walk-ups (no elevator), and are of a wood frame construction. They will usually have no balconies. Should the co-op you choose to have a balcony, elevator, and view, these will be at the upper end of the scale.

Registered or Non-Registered Co-op

Registered means the title is registered with the province. Banks like these type of co-op buildings. Property Purchase tax will be paid.

Non-Registered: no Property Purchase tax, however, title must be shown from inception (not a big issue).
