The federal government should refrain from further intervention in the housing markets by adjusting mortgage lending rules, the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA) said today.
In his inaugural address to the 70th National Annual CHBA Conference here, Incoming President Deep Shergill of Calgary said that such intervention represents “a hammer” that impacts all housing markets, both those that are healthy and those yet to fully recover from the recession.
What Members need to know right now:
The Canadian Home Builders' Association has compiled Flood Recovery information resources that can assist homeowners and professional builders and renovators in planning and managing the rehabilitation of flood affected homes. These materials address the general issues encountered with flood- and water-damaged houses.
Before undertaking any of the measures outlined in these materials, it is recommended that you check with local building and emergency management officials to ensure that it is safe to conduct work on the home, and that all necessary approvals are in place.
