Working with our planning and building departments, if it is determined a unit is being removed we require:

– a letter of commitment from the owner that the building is being converted back to a single family dwelling and at such time they want to add a unit they will contact the Planning Department for approval prior to the change. Once approval has been given by the Planning department a building permit will be applied for to Change the Use of the building;

– The removal of separation or barrier doors between the two units;

– the removal of the kitchen in the unit that is being removed, and

– in the case it has been determined bedrooms need to be removed from maybe a cellar, we would ask for a sketch of the floor area showing how the space is going to be used.

To remove a kitchen:

– the stove wiring needs to be removed back to the electrical panel.

– Either the fridge or the sink and counter can remain.  One needs to be removed.

– If you choose to remove the sink, the plumbing will need to be removed and properly capped at the nearest intersecting branch.

Hope this helps.
