Hey everyone, I have a few questions around the process and cost of subdivision. Firstly, I live in Townsville, and this is where I have found a potential property to buy and subdivide.
What is the process, where to start, who to consult (council, surveyors etc) when it comes to subdividing?
Is there a way to find out if it is possible before purchasing/owning the property?
Does anyone have any recent experiences of this in Townsville and could throw a ball park figure of the costs involved?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thankyou in advance.T.B.Participant@t-bJoin Date: 2020Post Count: 0
Maybe give your local council and town planning a call first. I know that some areas require a certain amount of land for subdivision. Alternatively if you buy 2 lots, you can do whats called a boundary realignment. If they are next to each other you can move the boundaries around to suit the desired lay out and change the shape of the property . This will help if one is smaller than the other and needs more room receive a better sales/rental result. Obviously will also work better with acerage but its something to keep in mind .
Best of luck
