Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions about Domaine Du Ruisseau:
Do I own my own Home?
Yes. It’s very similar to owning your home in a freehold situation. The only difference is you are not purchasing the lot on which it sits. It is largely for this reason that homes at Domaine Du Ruisseau are so affordable. Instead, you are leasing the land from Parkbridge under the terms of a secure, monthly lease that ensures you exclusive residential access to the land for the term of the contract – we call it the Parkbridge Live Smart Lease.
What is the Parkbridge Live Smart Lease?
The Live Smart Lease is comprised of a monthly home site fee to lease the land from Parkbridge and a monthly community management fee to cover property administration and maintenance. At Domaine du Ruisseau, it is
So I own my home but not the land, is that correct?
Yes. It is quite similar to a condominium situation. Typically, in a condo the resident owns what is essentially an apartment; everything structurally inside its walls is theirs. As well, residents share common areas such as hallways, lobbies, elevators and recreational areas with the other owners, and a monthly condo fee is paid to the property owner.
At Domaine Du Ruisseau, you own your home. In both cases, it is like freehold ownership in the sense that you will own the entire home from the ground up, and you will lease the land on which your home sits. And, again like condos, you will share common areas such as roads, sidewalks, the general grounds and all of our amenities, and a monthly site fee will be paid to Parkbridge.
So am I responsible for the maintenance of my home?
I’ve heard stories of people in land lease situations being forced to sell their homes if the owners of the property decide to change the type of housing. Can this happen at Du Ruisseau?
No. Our communities are developed through extensive collaboration with the local municipalities and are zoned as Lifestyle Leasehold communities. Legal agreements have been signed with the municipalities that govern the use of the property, population density, servicing requirements, type of housing, and maintenance standards to be provided. You can be assured that Domaine Du Ruisseau will remain
What is the price range of homes at Domaine Du Ruisseau?

How long will my home take to build?

Once all the preliminary requirements have been met (Approved Blueprints, Interior Color/Choice Selections and all development/building permits, etc.) – which typically takes about 2-4 weeks – work commences on building your home.
