Comments for Townhouse

Reuben Reuben said:

If a triplex has a pair of side-by-side 2-story units with the 3rd unit sitting on the 3rd floor across the first 2 units, can the complex be made into townhouses?

Hello, Reuben! Townhomes usually have their own entrance at street level, so you may turn your three unit property into two townhomes, although you should seek advice from your city first, and then, get a permit.
