What to Consider When Buying a Lakefront Property in Lake Windermere

Fees: Some communities charge community fees and strata fees. So find out the amount of fees collected before making a purchase.

Taxes: It may help to know the amount of property taxes you may have to pay for your waterfront property beforehand.

Property Line: Finding your property line is important to avoid encroaching on public land.

Bylaws: Bylaws provide regulations on zoning. In this case, you need to find a realtor who understands the bylaws for the Regional District of East Kootenay Region. These laws determine whether you are allowed to put up retaining walls, a boathouse, beach staircases, etc. However, if you buy a property within a lakefront community, you may have ready access to the beach, marina and other amenities, without needing to construct anything.

Underground Utilities: If you buy a lot located in a lakefront community, chances are it’s already connected to underground utilities. If not, you may need to comply with the area’s bylaws before connecting the utilities.
