Also to know is, can I build a mother in law suite on my property?
Purchasing a home with an in-law suite (or building one yourself) has its benefits. Here are the top reasons why owners wish to have a mother-in-law apartment on their property. The first (and most common) benefit of adding a mother-in-law apartment is to house a live-in nanny, aging parent or other family member.
One may also ask, what makes an in law apartment legal? An in-law apartment might be an apartment over a garage or a basement suite. Legally, an in-law apartment must have its own entrance, kitchen, bathroom and living space. Common space, such as laundry rooms and living rooms, are usually allowed.
Consequently, how do you finance an inlaw suite?
Financing an in-law apartment is often done through a credit union or local bank, using the equity in their primary residence. For homeowners with sufficient equity and a good credit rating, there are a few different home-equity loan options to choose from, depending on your circumstances.
How big is an in law suite?
The minimum size for a bedroom that could accommodate a twin size bed is 10' x 10'. A standard sized bathroom is 5' x 8' and while not spacious, is still usable as people get older. A single car garage can certainly accommodate a bedroom and bathroom.
