Play • 21 min

What exactly is a condo conversion, you ask? You have come to the right spot!

We have a two-part conversation about condo conversions.

  • What is a condo conversion?  
    • Dividing up existing real estate into different pieces (not by lot line) so that they can be sold or owned separately.
    • It’s not a physical difference - just a legal one.
  • Why would you do a condo conversion? (Hint - If it’s more profitable to sell units separately).


  • Some planning is involved for marketability - Separate utilities, Level of finishing, Sensible layouts and amenities


  • How to do it: three items needed
    • Master Plan - as built drawing by architect and surveyor
    • Master Deed - description of units - who owns what - prepared by attorney in conjunction with architect’s plans
    • Declaration of Trust - how the condo is managed, rules - prepared by attorney
  • Legal limits, such as 4+ units, Extra municipal rules, and Taxes


  • Other considerations - Registered land approval and insurance
