Mortgage helper suites

The cost of affordable housing prompts many people to consider renting out a suite in their basement to help with mortgage payments.  In some cases these are legal suites and in many cases they are not.  If the tenant is a family member that is not a problem but if it is a complete stranger you may be violating local by-laws.  If it is a legal suite then the lending institutions will take that into account when calculating the cost of your monthly income and how much of a mortgage they will give you.
