Basement Suite Development

A legal basement suite is a great way to provide additional income for homeowners. You will need to follow the rules set by the city of Edmonton and take necessary precautions before proceeding. 

Once you have created and developed a legal basement suite in your home, you can reap the benefits of extra space or additional monthly income with a new tenant.

Knowledge and Experience

When a property owner decides to develop their legal basement suite, they will first need to get a development permit for the project. There are certain requirements that the owner must meet in order to have their permit approved. The project must adhere to zoning regulations as well as bylaws that may be in place for the municipality or district.

The process will also vary depending on if this is the first time that a basement suite has been added to the property or if it has been done previously on the same property. This is because of changes such as new municipal bylaws and new zoning regulations.

When you team up with Edmonton’s Best Contractors we take care of the headache and stress off remodeling your basement or turning your extra home space into a fully fledged rental unit.
