What is an illegal basement suite in Calgary?

There are thousands of basement suites in Calgary that were built without permits or inspections. These are considered by the City of Calgary to be illegal. All owners can apply with the City to legalize these suites to make sure they are safe for tenants and legal to rent. The City often receives complaints from neighbours, usually about parking and these complaints could lead to the City shutting down your secondary suite. Homes with Legal suites are worth more money both as rentals and for resale. Savvy first-time home buyers, investors and seniors are buying these properties up and legalizing the suites. There are plenty of homes like this in Calgary right now. Check the City of Calgary website for Secondary Suite Info.
