The first place prize in the Contest is the legal and beneficial title to the house and lands legally and municipally described in the attached Schedule “A” (subject to all easements, encumbrances and interests noted on Schedule “A”) located at 1420 Prospect Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2T 0X6 and subject to a residential tenancy agreement until March 31, 2020 (the “Lease”). The Sponsor will transfer the Prize to the confirmed winner of the Contest (the “Winner”), and to be clear this is not a cash prize but instead title to lands and the house situated thereupon without furnishings and with the following fixtures and fittings, all of which are “as-is” condition and without warranty whatsoever (the house and lands described in Schedule “A” together with the fixtures and fittings below noted, (the “House”): dishwasher (built-in), dryer, fan-ceiling, garage control, garage opener, oven (built-in), refrigerator, stove-countertop electric, stove-countertop gas, washer, window coverings-all, wine/beverage cooler, fireplace, and in-floor heat. Additional details about the House are available here: BoldStok.com

The House has been evaluated by an independent professional and its value has been determined to be $2,980,000 CAD. There are no liens, taxes, or debts associated with the House. The House is non-transferrable, must be accepted as awarded and cannot be substituted for cash or otherwise. The Winner may need to sign additional documents to legally transfer the House from the Sponsor to the Winner (and will be responsible for all costs thereof). Upon transfer of the House to the Winner of the Contest, the Winner will be responsible for all taxes, fees, and incidental costs associated with the transfer of the House, including but not limited to legal fees, property transfer tax and sales taxes. Upon transfer and receipt of the House, the Winner is responsible for all future costs associated with enjoyment of the use of the House.

The House is awarded “as is” and “as-available” with no warranty or guarantee, expressed or implied, being provided by Sponsor or any other person. Sponsor makes no representation, and disclaims and offers no warranty or condition, express or implied, as to the quality or fitness of the House awarded in connection with the Contest.

The Lease is for a term of 12 months ending on March 31, 2020 entitling the Winner to a monthly payment of $4,475 less any maintenance expenses and management fees. A property management company shall manage the Lease on behalf of the Winner until the completion of the term.

The second, third and fourth place contestants (the “Runners –Up”) will each be awarded a cash prize of $50,000.

Lots to read, AND WRITE, if you want to enter, I don't know if this is legit, but seems like it just on a whim. Seems you can relocate to Calgary and live debt free for a year, or other prizes of $50K. Good luck!

I feel so stupid and am confused. Is it a lease to the house or you actually win it... to own?

I am pretty sure it's a lease, to live there debt-free for a while. They're not giving away the house, I don't believe, but I do believe it comes furnished.

So I sent them an email and this was their response:
Hello,
The grand prize winner - wins the house and as well the lease until it expires March 2020. The lease may be renewed prior to March 2010.

thank you,
Bill, BoldStok Team

I am weary about this contest. It states they need 100,000 entries to complete the contest. Their facebook page has 546 likes... there's no way

I didn't see that. But I saw that a semi-finalist will be chosen every 1000 entries on their enter page.

I saw that article too. It was also on Narcity. The global news one doesn't open anymore though. It says failure to load
