What is a Legal Basement Suite in Calgary?

A legal basement suite in Calgary is in a home that has been inspected and approved to be used as a rental property. These Secondary Suites are highly sought after by first-time homebuyers, seniors, and real estate investors.

Having a home with income potential is very attractive for first-time homebuyers that want to skip the condo and townhouse market. Some often spend the first few years renting out the main floor while living in the basement. Now that's a smart way to jump-start home ownership without condo fees. 

Seniors wanting to downsize and also avoid condos and townhouses also love these properties. Seniors often have the basement tenants take care of the snow shovelling and lawn cutting as part of the rent.

Real Estate Investors love the opportunity to maximize their income potential by renting the basement suite, main floor and garages.

The big advantage of having a City Approved Secondary Suite is never having to worry about complaining neighbours calling the city to have your basement suite shut down.

Check out the City Of Calgary's Website for everything you should know about secondary suites.
