If you are having trouble making needed repairs at your home the County of Lambton can help.The Lambton Renovates program offers financial assistance to repair deficiencies and improve accessibility for eligible households in need. This can be in the form of a 10 year forgivable loan or in a one time grant.
The loan can be up to a maximum of $15,000 per household and is secured by registration on the title of your home. The repairs can be things like a new roof or furnace as well as electrical or plumbing updates. It does not cover any cosmetic updates like a new kitchen or bathroom but it may include a new toilet or septic system.
To be eligible you must own a home in Lambton County with a maximum market value of $190,000. (I can provide a market evaluation if you are not sure of your current value) and you must be in good standing with your mortgage lender.
If you are in need of accessibility modifications to help you stay in your home you may be eligible for a $5000 non repayable grant to help with things like ramps and handrails or even a chair lift.
