New CMHC rules for homes with rental suites

Updated Thursday, September 10, 2015
Views (1852)

CMHC has announced it will allow 100% of the rental income from legal secondary suites to be used when qualifying for a mortgage. Currently it allows 50%.

Rental suites are a source of affordable housing with rents often lower than a traditional rental unit. Secondary/basement suites also give lower-income Canadians the chance to live in single-family residential neighbourhoods while providing extra income to the home owner.

The new rules will start on September 28th. If you are considering a home with a rental suite you need to do your homework. Check with the municipality to be sure that it is a legal rental suite and that it is eligible for the new rules.

More details will become available from CMHC closer to the new rules taking affect.
