Legalize basement apartment in house

Paul provided an excellent and fast and efficient service. He obviously knows all of the bylaws and requirements, and you get all the answers in one place, officially, by the books.

Secondary suite fire code review

As a first time home buyer the option of having a secondary suite to rent out for additional income was an important decision in making my purchase. However I was a little hesitant when the unit was not of legal status, as is the case with 90% of the secondary suites in Toronto. Although it seemed to be very close to meeting all requirements getting Paul to inspect the house, and advise on required changes, gave me peace of mind that I will be able to do the necessary upgrade to legalize the unit. Thank you very much Paul for your service and quick response time (inspection was booked and completed in under 2 days). Would recommend his service for anyone concerned about secondary suites.

Firecode evaluation for new basement suite

This is the second time I have used Paul and he really knows his stuff. He provided a thorough report and was available on several occasions to answer follow up questions. Thanks so much Paul.

Fire Code Retrofit audit

Before renting our basement apartment, we tried to interpret the Fire Code ourselves. We found it really difficult to do, and didn't find any straightforward guides to help us. Our real estate agent recommended Paul. He thoroughly inspected our basement apartment, and answered all our questions while doing it. He was extremely knowledgeable, and offered practical solutions about how to address the problems. In the past when we worked with a home inspector, it was a bad experience because the inspector refused to comment on the scale of the problem or to give any solutions. Paul was the exact opposite, and very friendly! We also appreciated that he printed the report on the spot and gave us an electronic copy. We would recommend him to anyone who wants a clear understanding of where their unit is not up to code, and how to fix it. Thanks Paul!
