On February 25th, 2013 Mississauga Landlords Can Make Your Voice Heard To Government on Secondary Suites
Mississauga landlords have been in the news recently. This time it’s good news.
-Are you a Mississauga landlord with an existing secondary suite?
-Would you like to add a secondary suite to your house to create a wealth through a rental stream?
-Are you considering buying a rental property with a secondary suite?
You have a chance to to make your voice heard on the Mississauga Secondary Unit Implementation Strategy
The city is having a public meeting on February 25th, 2013.
At this meeting you will have a chance to ask questions about the proposed new policy regarding secondary units. You will also have the opportunity to review the current proposals and provide important feedback to the government.
The Provincial Planning Act requires all Ontario municipalities to have policies regarding second units in homes.
Adding secondary units can help families pay their mortgage, help seniors remain in homes, and create a living space for relatives.
2. There is a real impact on Mississauga neighbourhoods
3. There are issues concerning safety
This is a serious concern. There are many current illegal units which do not meet either the Fire Code or the Building Code. Licensing second units can prevent this. Units currently ‘under the radar’ will surface and be required to meet safety requirements.
