Co-Housing Agreements

The success of the partnership with Synergy has extended to management well beyond the development phase. Choosing the rental price for affordable housing is a shared responsibility between Threshold and the housing company. Interested individuals who are enrolled in the Council`s Home Choice program typically spend a weekend in Threshold to see how it works and, when selected, their leases with Synergy require an obligation to participate in certain municipal activities. The threshold centre is clearly a very successful program that would not have been created without a successful housing co-operative. In many ways, it is unique, but that does not mean that it is not reproducible. The group is currently studying a second co-housing project on land close to its successful development.

If necessary, I agree to ask for the help of the nomadic mediation team for a skilled member of the community to mediate.

If the problem is not resolved satisfactorily with the help of the mediation team, I agree to seek a free or paid mediation service such as the City of Boulder Community Mediation Service (cost of $30) and pay all expenses for this process. Some of the problems that need to be addressed in a co-housing contract: Shared Homeownership is another term used for co-housing and involves several co-owners (related or unrelated) of a single dwelling unit (SRDU) or, as some call it ” detached house” (SFH).
