Hey there to make it a legal apartment it needs it's own entrance or split entrance, kitchen, bathroom closet bedroom argon window in the bedroom, first get a plan drawings estimate then get building permit with covid building permits can wait as long as project is under $75,000, as for just a kitchen depend on finish and fixtures 12,500 to 20,000 roughly

Hi there, my name is Brad with Cityline electrical. Well there are a few things that would have to be done in order to legalize your basement. I can give you a fair price. I would however need to stop by and see it that way I can be as accurate as possible in providing an estimate.

No one is able to provide exact price unless you have the permit drawings approved from the city. Any professional contractor might give you a budget for it but for the exact cost you need the drawings and complete specifications. Drawings will cost you about $2000. Hope that help!
