Hope your all looking forward to your easter break :)
So i'm undertaking a development on backwards sloping land. I am in negotations with council on purchasing an easment through a park directly behind me.
They have asked for $10k + legal costs + survey + $500 application fee. I have pleaded poor and brought the $10k down to $7.5k.
The neighbours next door will be building a granny flat as well and will be using the eastment without cost as I am the first in the street to do so.
Is there a way around it or putting a clause to charge anyone else using the easment to dilute costs over time?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
