Legal Suites

Buying a home with an exisiting legal suite is a great way to help qualify for a mortgage.  Mortgage lenders will take a portion of the rental income into consideration when qualifying a client for a mortgage.  They will only look at income from legal suites; income from a 'non-conforming' suite cannot be used as criteria for qualification purposes.

A legal suite will be noted as such on the MLS listing with a permit number from the City of Saskatoon.

A question that often comes up, is, 'what are the guidelines and criteria that makes a suite legal?'  To find out more about legalizing an existing suite or how to create a new secondary suite, click on the links below or contact the City of Saskatoon Development Services Branch
