Right-of-occupancy apartments

Right-of-occupancy apartments provide an alternative to rental or owned housing. A right-of-occupancy apartment grants a permanent right to occupy the apartment, but the apartment cannot be owned. You can acquire a right-of-occupancy apartment by signing a right-of-occupancy agreement and paying 15% of the apartment's purchase price as a right-of-occupancy payment.
