Why are the one and two bedroom suites not available to those on the external waitlist?
Our 18 one-bedroom suites have been closed to the external waitlist since 2010 and our 2 two-bedroom suites have been closed since 2005. Members on the internal waitlist get an opportunity for internal moves before the external waitlist applicants are contacted. It is very rare that a one bedroom comes available and almost never does a two bedroom come available to those on the external waitlist. The Membership Committee felt it was easier to clearly outline these limitations in the online application in order to reduce the number of applications received.
Who owns View Court Housing Co-op?
We get together as a legal body called a co-op, that owns land and buildings, which then leases part of the building back to us as a home.
Together we are owners; individually mere lease holders.
