Halam Park Housing Co-operative is committed to giving service ofthe best quality they can at a fair price. Canadian housing co-operatives hold certain aims in common:
If offered a unit housing unit at Halam Park, you sign an Occupancy Agreement which is a legal binding contract that you will observe and obey the co-op’s By-Laws and the Cooperative Co-operations Act which is the governmental body overseeing the operations of all coop’s.
At Halam Park Housing Co-operative, you are required to pay a Member Security Deposit when moving in which is equal to your housing charge payment to a maximum of $300.
Should your housing charges change, you will be required to increase or decrease your deposit accordingly. This deposit is held until you move out of the unit and no damages have occurred, each member over the age of 16 must also pay a one-time $5 membership fee when accepting a unit.
All monthly housing charges paid by cheque must be brought to the office by the 27th day of each month, for the upcoming month it must be dated the 1st of that month. Housing charges paid by debit must be done in person at the Office on the 1st of the month or prior.
Each unit has been designated with one parking spot on Co-op property. You will be issued a parking pass when you move in, this parking pass must be displayed on the windshield of your vehicle at all times. The parking areas are monitored and cars will be tagged if not properly stickered. Visitor parking is available on a first come first serve basis and also requires a parking permit to be displayed on the dash.
Participation is an important part of the operations of Halam Park Housing Co-operative and our community. Each member is asked to volunteer on either a committee or a specific job around the Co-op. We have these committees to keep costs down within the Co-op, so that our housing charges do not go up, and for promoting social ties within our community. There are many committees to choose from, some are: Board of Directors, Membership, Social, Unit Inspections, and Landscaping.
