London, Ontario is fortunate to have many different types of housing for people looking to live, work, and thrive in this global city. The housing options available to you differ based on your needs and budget, and, like other cities across Ontario, may be difficult to find from time to time. For example, you may choose to rent a home or apartment, as opposed to buying a home outright. Others may need financial support to obtain housing, which the City of London offers to eligible applicants.
The affordability of housing options varies also based on where you want to live within the city, number of rooms, and the amenities within the home. Some rental options include utilities such as heating and water, while others require the renter to pay for those services themselves. It is important to make sure that you understand the total costs of your housing arrangement before you sign a lease.
Settlement services can also help you in your search.
