It was about time that Surrey put in legislation allowing secondary suites. With the price of homes today most buyers cannot afford a larger home without the help of renters to pay their mortgage. Since implemented on Dec 13, 2010 it seems they have only been selectively targeting homes with multiple suites. Now it sounds like Surrey will be gradually cracking down on all suites not yet brought up to code by the end of April, as they hire a new bylaw clerk and a couple new bylaw officers. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for this process to take affect.
