We have the good experts for your building or home conversion

Converting a rental or property into a condominium property can be very profitable, if done right. Knowing the steps, following the rules and working with an experienced guide to find professional contractors for your building conversion all increase your chances for a successful and profitable project.

First a few tips

  • Find out when or if a building conversion is possible:
    - for the type of rental building you own
    - in the community you live in (check with your city’s urban planning department)
    Remember you can’t proceed with your municipality’s authorization!
  • Once you have received authorization, you have to work with:
    - a land surveyor to create new deeds for the Land Registry
    - a notary for the condominium declaration (it’s like a constitution for the condo)
    - in all cases, a building conversion from rental to condo has to be approved by the rental board in your province
  • Next comes construction:
    - building permits
    - architectural plans
    - turnkey construction contractors

That’s where we come in!

What types of building conversions are possible

The most common type of conversion is to convert a private property into rental homes or a rental property. We see 3-storey houses where a bachelor is created in the basement to rent and pay off a good part of their own mortgage. In this case, you have to create an independent entrance to your basement residence and this requires work that affects the structure of your building. You will also need to completely remodel the interior of your basement which may include a new bathroom, a new kitchen and more. Our general contractors can take the entire project in charge to simplify your task and make you save in management costs and time.

We can help you assemble your building conversion team from architects to turnkey construction contractors and everything in between, such as structural engineers and electrical, plumbing, masonry, tiling and lighting contractors.
