About Hamilton

Ontario’s former Steeltown is so much more. A deep sea port city, Hamilton treats visitors to waterfalls, cobble-stoned streets and national historic sites like Dundurn Castle.

The rocky bluffs of the Niagara Escarpment, known locally as The Mountain, offer city and harbour views. Ample green spaces at Bayfront Park and relaxing walks along Bruce Trail give the city its green reputation.

Their joint income is considered in deciding how much home they can afford, and everyone shares in paying the mortgage. Co-signers are on title to a property, and are liable for the full mortgage payment if the mortgage holder defaults. Since they are only a co-signer though, they don’t necessarily live in the home and don’t contribute to the monthly mortgage payments.
