What is Attached house?
Attached homes have two primary advantages from a cost savings point of view. First, they share one or more common walls which reduces overall building cost and, secondly, higher densities can be achieved than with detached homes on specific plots of land.
Different types of attached homes:
- Semi-Detached: Semi-detached (homes side-by-side having a commonwall) have proven popular as they provide many features associated with detached homes (i.e., size and individual title to the land) while offering certain price advantages, particularly for young families.
- Town (Row) Houses: Row housing has also become a popular alternative in which three or more units are joined together by common party walls. Town houses are either offered as freehold (the owner holds title to the structure and the land) or condominium (the unit owner owns the structure as defined in the condominium documentation) and shares the land as a common element with other unit owners.
