G’day all I am new to the forums.
I have been thinking of flipping houses and doing the research at the moment.
– Do I need to be a builder / owner builder?
In Western Australia, if your planning construction which is needing council approval (i.e. building a garage, extension, Patio) & costs exceed 20K you need to have a builder/owner builder. Owner builder can only be done once in 7 years so that wouldnt work if flipping houses.
However, I want to know if, I’m not necessarily physically adding to the home, but my total costs exceed that figure do I need a builders ticket?
I.e. I might erect a patio and put through council at $8K than do kitchen, bathroom, laundry etc and hit $30K….
Sorry if stupid question but I want to cover all bases.
