The official city description a garage suite is "a self-contained accessory dwelling above or attached to a rear detached garage, on a single detached lot which usually comes in the form of an apartment-sized living space, with its own kitchen, bathroom, and living space, on the second floor of your garage".
The city’s description of a garden suite is "an at-grade self-contained, accessory dwelling located in a building that is physically separate from the principal dwelling." Typically, garden suites are single storey structures built in the back yards of single detached homes and must have their own kitchen, bathroom, and living space.
There are several benefits of purchasing a house with a garage or garden suite or bulding on an existing house in Edmonton including ...
Garage and garden suites are great ways to add some rental income to your property to help pay down your mortgage. It eliminates the shared interior space the way you would with a basement suite. These smaller living spaces are also a great way to add some diversity to your neighbourhood because they allow a different demographic access to housing options on your street.
Garage and garden suites can keep family members near by, yet allows for more personal space. It can be a great option for keeping your parents or your children close, while still maintaining some privacy by ensuring everyone has their own space. Alternatively, some aging empty nesters have decided to downsize into their own garden or garage suite, and allow their children’s family to live nearby, in the main house.
As with any good infill project, it’s all about creating more flexible living options so every Edmontonian can choose the neighbourhood that suits them best. For more information on Garage and Garden suites, visit the city of Edmonton's Infill website.

If possible, it is still best to have a current Real Property Report with compliance when buying or selling a home to ensure all property buildings are within the municipality guidelines. If an RPR is not an option, title insurance is a good substitute.
Title insurance without a Real Property Report and compliance is acceptable by most major mortgage lenders and will often provide coverage for the lender for known defects. Unlike other insurance products, there is only one premium paid at the time of closing which provides coverage to the owner throughout their ownership of the property. It also offers a wide range of protection for issues that are not covered by an RPR and compliance.
If you are selling or buying a home and have been told that there is no compliance or you have a non-confirming property, Don't panic. Below is a list of benefits and drawbacks with a non-confirming property which will help you make a more informed decision.
Traditionally a Real Property Report (RPR) and compliance letter or stamp (or non-conformance, referred to throughout as simply compliance) has traditionally been the preferred method of providing security to a buyer. However, as some municipalities no longer offer compliance documents, the contractual requirements to provide a RPR with compliance documents are increasingly difficult for sellers to meet. It is important to ensure that you are aware of the alternatives, such as title insurance, and that the appropriate steps are taken to ensure that all parties involved are properly protected.
RPRs, compliance, and title insurance are all useful. On their own, each has its distinct benefits and both buyers and sellers are best served when all three are in place. However, this is often not practicable or possible. It is important for buyers and sellers to understand both the benefits and shortcomings of each one.
