  • Do I need an Architect or Structural Engineer?

    Hi,

    I want to remove/move a load bearing wall in my kitchen, with a view to having RSJ instead.

    I guess for insurance purposes that I need a professional to say what can and can't be done.

    Do I need to employ the services of an architect or a structural engineer, to produce plans/certificates, etc before I get a builder in to do the work?

    Many thanks.

  • PMP Certification - How do I prove the amount of PM hours that I have put in?

    I am a BA. As part of my job I have carried out PM tasks for about 16 months. I have not yet applied to become a member of PMI or for the exam.

    Questions:

    - Can my experience before I join PMI count toward the 4500 hours of PM time?

    - How do you work out the hours?

    - How do I prove that I have done the 4500 hours?

    - Do I have to get something signed by my manager?

    - What if I can't get it off my previous manager as I have left the company?

    - Can you do the exam and then finish obtaining the 4500 hours before getting the certification?

    - I heard some people say about writing up the experience. What does that entail?

    I have seen lots about taking the exam, but not a lot about proving the 4500 hours put in.

    Many thanks.

  • Can anyone explain the tax on rental income in Canada?

    Hi,

    Please could someone help because I am really confused.

    I purchased my first rental property 6 months ago. I put about in a 3rd of the value of the property and took the rest out in a mortgage. There were already tenants in the property so they have just carried on. My mortgage plus property taxes equals the amount I am being paid in rent, so basically I am paying all of the bills, etc out of my own pocket.

    I am trying to understand whether my investment is worthwhile because I am making a loss at the moment.

    i.e. per month

    Rental income = $2000

    Mortgage payment = $1700

    Prop tax = $300

    All other bills = $550

    Can anyone highlighten me?

    Am I making a good investment?

    When I file my income tax returns will I recover this loss?

    Is there a good Canadian forum anyone can suggest on this subject?

    I am new to this, so if someone can give me some simple guidance, I would be very thankful.

    A
