gtaselling Garden suites can now be legally built in Toronto backyards thanks to a recent decision by the Ontario Land Tribunal.
A garden suite is a smaller, separate dwelling built behind the main residence and is typically utilized as a rental unit.
These suites may be a great opportunity to house aging parents or provide rental income to offset your mortgage payments.
Garden suites will remain under the same ownership as the main house with no option to sever the property. The suites will be serviced with utilities through a connection to the main house or to the street.
Proposed garden suites will need to meet building criteria regarding height and bylaw standards to obtain a building permit. Minor variance applications may be approved.
Do you think this is an exciting new development for Toronto?
