You need to contact body corporate manager. Their details are on levy notices you are regularly paying. Document your case as detailed as possible: photos, dates etc.
In case that building is less than 6 years old ( I think?), you/body corporate may be eligible to claim it on Home Warranty Insurance. At least that is how it works in Qld.…[Read more]
I feel that this post would be excellent read for investors who are at the beginning of shaping their investment strategy.To encourage them to think about many possible scenarios, not just: in time I should be right. For example: what if growth is stagnant for 10-15 years? No big dramas with ‘property bust’, just no growth above the…[Read more]
Why do you think that another builder (doesn’t matter how excellent he may be) would be able to construct it for a feasible price? If you already have had a couple of quotes way over the budget?
It looks to me that your solution is not to replace the existing house with a brand new one. What you really need is to increase number of…[Read more]

Try Concrete Casters,at least for a quote. mob. 0421 595 384.
To my knowledge price would be a bit higher then $150/post.
Or search ‘restumping contractors’.

Your budget is rather big. Maybe if you buy a house in Brisbane (more growth potential) and unit in regional town (higher rental yield)…. To spread your risk.
Of course, only you know your numbers
I can help you. I am licenced building designer, operating in Brisbane 0421 994 470). However, before, you contact me, check with private building certifier whether you can get BA trough him, using builders drawings.
I am very surprised with the answer council gave you. Any builder can draw up plans for his construction work, provided that…[Read more]
Would it be possible that your property manager failed at his/her duty?
Have they inspected the property on regular bases? Or all of the above happened between regular inspections (i.e. within 2-3 months). Every management agreement comes with 3-4 yearly inspections, to be reported back to you afterwards.
If so, you may look at your…[Read more]
Ballerina replied to the topic 3-4 unit development. Query re: getting plans drawn up in the forum Help Needed! 5 years ago

Yes, happened to us two times in Brisbane. It was to distinguish pedestrian traffic and cars, in our case. Yes, it peels off,and is high maintenance. If colours are well chose,n does not have to be ugly. You may consider differentiation in materials (concrete/pavers combination), if budget allows.

Ballerina replied to the topic Potential Triplex Site – Is this sewer a big deal or not? in the forum Value Adding 5 years, 8 months ago

He/she will check it out for you based on: planning requirements and possible site layout (to get the triplex design), and he/she should…[Read more]

If you are novice in development, you should work with 60% max of total development costs. Check with mortgage broker. You do not have enough cash.
