Many homeowners are deciding to install legal suites in their homes for the rental income.  However, without the proper electrical service the system can easily become overloaded and a significant fire hazard.  It's important to have a qualified electrician verify that your service can support the extra load.

It is a 2 storey home with a separately metered legal suitedownstairs.  As per the BC building code there are photoelectric type smoke alarms interconnected between the suites.  Also a structured media panel, allowing the cable / tel / internet connections throughout the home to be easily adapted to whatever the homeowner and suite tenants needs are.

This new construction build is the personal home of a local framing contractor.

With a seperately metered system there can also be less "headaches" to dealing with a tenant.

  - The tenant will be required to have the utility bill in their own name.  So late or missed payments only affect them.

 - There can be no arguement over who used the power and therefore must pay more of the bill.
