Frequently Asked Questions ~ Maple Mews, Lantz, NS

Are these homes or apartments?

All of our units are individual townhome units. Each home has a private entry and a private patio. The size of home varies; offering options for everyone based on how much space they require and their budget.  Our ground level townhomes are one level, with no stairs inside the home. These homes do not require an elevator to travel to your floor and you do not have neighbours above or below you. 


How many bedrooms and bathrooms are in each home?

We are pleased to offer one and two-bedroom homes. Each unit comes with a full bathroom, including a walk-in shower with a shower seat.  Showers and bathrooms can be equipped with grab bars to offer increased stability while in the washroom. 


Is this a retirement community?

Though our community is geared towards empty-nesters, we welcome anyone that's looking for a quiet & peaceful lifestyle. Our community provides the opportunity to right-size housing to reduce the burden of home maintenance, and live in a community with others at a similar life stage.


Can I have a pet live with me?

Of course! We love pets. That said, each community has a pet policy.  The size, weight, type, and the number of pets will determine if we will be able to accommodate your furry friend.


What is included in my rent?

Your rent includes your private home, a parking space, snow removal, lawn care, and waste removal. Each home includes a private outdoor patio, private entrance, and six full-sized appliances (washer, dryer, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave).


Are there additional costs per month?

You are responsible for the cost of utilities such as electricity, telephone, cable, internet, renter’s insurance, and any care services. 


Will rents increase?

Rents will increase annually.


Can I have guests stay with me?

Absolutely. We love having company for short-term stays. 


Do I bring my own furniture?

Yes, this is your home. You are free to decorate as you wish. We have a resident handbook to provide guidance about the restrictions of decorative changes to your rental home.


Can I live here forever?

We want this to be your forever home. Whether you are down-sizing from your family home or making this a new home for you, we will do everything we can to ensure you enjoy living in our community.


What laws protect me as a tenant?

The Residential Tenancies Act helps landlords and tenants understand their rights, and exercise those rights when necessary.
