The Town of Indian Head has reasonably priced residential and commercial lots for sale on a first-come basis. Purchasers must commence construction within one year of purchase.
The Town of Indian Head has a small number of serviced residential lots for sale.
To purchase a residential lot from the Town, you will be required to sign an agreement that outlines your construction timeline as well as building requirements for your new home. Construction must be approved and started on the land within 52 weeks of the date the agreement is signed. Construction to a level of taxable assessment valued at 25% (floor joists and subfloor) must be completed within 18 months from the date the agreement was signed. If the developer cannot make these time requirements, they may submit a formal request to Town Council, however this is intended for the event of an unforeseen delay as opposed to a planned extension.
Prior to construction the developer would need a development permit from the Town and provide the Town with a site plan of the proposed build. The developer would also need a building permit from the Town and obtain written approval from the Town as to size and site plan. Two sets of blueprints of the proposed building need to be provided to the Town along with a list of contractors and subcontractors. Ready-to-move (RTM) homes are allowed so long as the width is about the same as the length (not resembling a mobile home or trailer). We do not have requirements for finishings and landscaping provided this development “fits” with the surrounding homes of the community.
After the sale is closed and for whatever reason the developer has to walk away from the property/ project. The developer must return the property to the Town for purchase price less 10% and GST.
The Town has a small number of commercial lots for sale. Commercial lots are priced on a frontage foot basis plus GST. The Town also offers a unique Commercial Incentive Policy to assist businesses in reaching their long-term goals.
