  • The way your post was written made it sound like you were considering this course of action for funding your own subdivision…it's not what you said..just the way you wrote it.

  • MarkWe used to do alot of insurance assessing for IAG over a couple of states. I can tell you from experience that any total loss claim (or substantial claim due to fire) will be closely scrutinized by a loss adjustor who will investigate relevant reports from the attending fire authority into the cause of the fire. If they look suspicious, or…[Read more]

    Don't know if you already have a concrete slab that you would like to polish or are looking to retrofit?The polished concrete that you see in the magazines isn't the normal concrete that is poured in a slab. Concrete that is intended to be polished has a higher mpa and can have different preparation and pouring/installation techniques. Some po…[Read more]

  • JFisher replied to the topic Building and pest report..some questions. in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 1 month ago

    While you are talking to the building inspector ask him what the council requires when illegal building works are found. In our council you can buy the property with unapproved work without having to repair or remove it (unless it is deemed hazardous). But as it is noted on the contract it can have an impact on insurance claims (if a claim is lod…[Read more]

  • JFisher replied to the topic Advice required for rezoning. in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 2 months ago

    Your success may also depend on how small the lots are that you would like to subdivide. From the sounds of it you would be similar to us. I know that we were allowed to go no smaller than the 1 acre because there was no sewerage infrastructure; the lots had to be big enough to sustain septic/reln systems. Some councils allow smaller lots than…[Read more]

  • JFisher replied to the topic any warranty for completely refurbished properties? in the forum General Property 17 years, 2 months ago

    Each State is different on how many years of warranty would be afforded. If the renovator was an owner occupier or a landlord, and the repairs didn't involve structrual work I would doubt you have anything to work with. If there was structural work but it was done without a permit then there will be no warranty unless it was done for an owner…[Read more]

    We wanted to subidivide our PPOR when we first bought it nearly 13 years ago and approached our local council, we couldn't as we already had the smallest area they would allow in the Rural Zone (now Farm Zone) of 1 acre. I'm not sure which state you're in, but in Vic all zoning is the State Government's responsibility and unless it is earmarked f…[Read more]

    We rented a villa in Williamstown last year and upon payment of the fee we were given a 4 pin code to enter into a keybox at the front door of the property. It only opened the small box itself and inside was the key to the villa. Upon leaving we were asked to put the key back into the box and close the lid. I would presume that they would change…[Read more]

    I think you’ll find that if you purchase at auction it is unconditional (may differe in some states) with no cooling off period. Another reason why agents like them.

  • JFisher replied to the topic agent is convinced auction is best way……. in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 2 months ago

    I would get an independant valuation done on one (if they’re both the same) or both of the properties. This will give you a good idea of what they are worth at this point in time and will also be supported by recent sales in the area.
    This should give you an idea what a reasonable price would be if you go to auction. Auctions can usually result in…[Read more]

  • JFisher replied to the topic who replaces fences and pays for what? in the forum Value Adding 17 years, 2 months ago

    I will presume your IP is in Vic as you are.

    I cannot see anything in the Fence Act 1968 regarding the replacement of an acceptable existing fence or a section that was demolished without the permission or consent of both parties.

    So with that in mind

    As far as the Fence Act 1968 is concerned you are only obliged to pay half the entire fence IF…[Read more]

    My house is insured for 375, 000 (although it would sell for 310 max) and my contents insurance is 30K.

  • JFisher replied to the topic Dividing fence question in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 2 months ago

    Any fences that existed on the property when you bought it were included in your purchase price, as they could have been paid for by the previous owner. If the previous owner was the original developer then your neighbour lucked out, as a developer usually has a clause to state that they are not liable for half shares in fences for unsold…[Read more]
