澳洲Australia property Zonings | Sydney


在澳大利亚 Hi all, I currently have a PPOR and 10K cash in the bank which I plan to use as a deposit for a IP early next year. Is it possible for me to place this into my PPOR loan and then redraw the 10K when Im ready for the IP and then claim the int Hi Guys, Ive found a property that has mentioned two payments coming up of $1400 to apparently top up the admin fund and 2 have just been paid. Im looking at a financial statement (basically a balance sheet) for the strata and its all a bit


Hi All,

Can someone tell me what the zonings for residential property are or tell me a site that lists them?

I see 2b & 2c fairly often mentioned on houses for sale and want to know what they mean.

Do the zonings mean the same Australia wide or at least state wide?

Are there advantages/disadvantages to having particular zonings?

TIA

Olly

Hi there.

Check with the council in the area that you are looking in. They are usually very helpful.

Zonings let you know what is allowed to be built in an area. For example, an area where units are permitted to be built is different to straight residential houses.

Dear Olly,

Like PHM says definitely it is an area that you need to learn more about and if you are serious about a specific area a zoning map is invaluable.

How do you know if an area is flood affected? Flood affected land may look big but is VERY hard to subdivide. The insurance premiums that you will pay are higher too.

Is it a historic or heritage listed zoning? Are you restricted in what you can do with the building. In many cases you cannot change the outside of the building or if you subdivide the block cannot build a house that is not "in character" with the other houses in the area. So whilst a brick building would be nice you are forced to build "Modern queenslanders".

As a generalisation the type of zonings could be:

-Residential (Showing different levels of acceptable densities)
-Historic/Heritage (Limitations as detailed above)
-Medium density (Allows higher density townhouses, units and dual occupancies.)
-Special large lots (Maintains a country/rural feel for the area.)
-Commercial (Retail/offices etc.)
-Heavy/Light Industry
-Special Use (Something like churches, schools etc.)
-Open space (Especially for recreational purposes etc.)

Does the zoning affect the value of the property? The last one that I have just purchased was the right zoning. It was a busy corner intersection. One corner of the intersection was historic (can't change the outside or demolish the building), two others were low density residential. It was only the one that I purchased that was medium density. When I would like to I can then get council approval for a block of units on the site much more easily than any of the other three corners and in much less time. This fact adds value.

Other useful items to get is the council structure plan for the area. This tells you what their future intentions are and the types of things that are important to them. In one plan I have they talk about how they are working to decrease the amount of cars and increase the use of public transport over cars. Therefore they have a vested interest in helping to develop accomodation and developments that are walking distance to the station.

Some thoughts...........

Cheers,

Sunstone.
