The Crown lease was renewed for a new 15 year term on
June 30, 2002.
The 2012 Crown lease fee is $3,930.00 which is based on
3% of the annual assessed land value. The land value for
2012 was $131,000 Buyers need to do their own due diligence
regarding any questions they may have by calling the Ministry
of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations,
(formerly Land and Water BC) in Kamloops, or Front Counter BC
and discuss the assignment process and any fees associated
with this process. Their number is 1-877-855-3222
From talking to the Ministry, I understand that if a recreational lease
tenure has completed more than half of the issued term of the
current tenure the Land Officer may look at issuing a premature
renewal for a new 30 year lease. This lease tenure is now more
than half way through the 15 year term and may quality for a new
30 year lease.
The 2012 property taxes were $785.54
Headwaters lake #2 stats
Headwaters lake #2 has an elevation of 1,300 meters or
4,100' level. The surface area of Headwaters lake #2 is 19 ha,
or 47 surface acres. Headwaters lake has a perimeter of 3.4
kilometers or 2.11 miles. Buyers need to confirm these stats
if it is a concern to them.
Headwaters lakes are located just north of Peachland via the
old Princeton Hwy. At approx. km20 you will come to the turn
into Lake #1, which is a small fishing resort. Keep to your right
on the main road and you will soon start to circle lake #2.
Look for an orange gate on your left and this is where the
main entrance to the property is located.
There is a second alternate route. If you are coming from Merritt towards Kelowna
for approx. 60km you will come to the Hatheume lake resort exit
on the Pennask summit. Take this exit and follow the Hatheume
lake signs for approx. 7km and you will come to the under pass
for the Connector Freeway. You will make a sharp right turn and
follow the gravel forest service road for approx.8 km where you
will come to a junction in the road. Turn right here and you will
see lake #2 on your left.
I am not sure if this alternate route is
maintained through the winter months, but it appeared to be open
in the winter of 2011 for logging in the area. This route will cut
approx. 1 1/2 hours driving time off your trip should you go back into
Westbank and over to Peachland and back up to Headwaters lakes.
