Convert Apartments Into Condos
The City of Regina has a bylaw on condominium conversion, the Condominium Policy Bylaw. This Bylaw is intended to support a stable rental market and has four objectives:
- Ensure that condominium conversions do not significantly reduce the supply of rental accommodation in the city.
- Ensure the orderly conversion of residential rental apartments to condominium ownership.
- Provide measures that mitigate hardship for tenants of rental apartments subject to conversion.
- Delegate to the Development Officer all responsibilities as an approving authority for condominium applications except for the provisions specifically identified in the Bylaw that require City Council approval.
