澳洲Australia property How to find out if extensions have been a


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


Currently have a property under contract and noticed that a rear section of the property has been added on in what looks like a home handyman attempt (hand rail is a support post for rear stair case) now obviously this is a safety hazard to potential tenants and a liability to myself.

Firstly I am wondering how i can find out if the extension has been certified or approved somehow?

Secondly in regards to the contract is there a duty for the owner to ensure the property meets with regulations or can I go back to the owners and a) ask for the extension to meet council approval or b) adjust price to compensate for required work to be done.

Any advice and or contacts in relation to the extension approval would be greatly appreciated.

NB: the extension is a rear deck, stair case, external laundry

Regards

matt

P.S sorry if this is in the wrong section.

As youdont own the property yet (due to privacy) to ask councl you will need a letter from the owner to look at the plans and then you will soon find out if its got a permit or not.

Hi Matt,

Had a situation not to similar. Had a house under contract for ppor, in brisbane. Did checks through Brisbane City Council. Not sure where you are but??? If I were you, I would start with my local council to see if any approvals have been undertaken for certification of the part of the house, you are concerned with. Local Council should have records, if they have approved the concerned part. Also pay to have a building inspection of the structure to get some idea of what it might cost to have rectified. Then you have some base for possible negotiation with the vendor. Also would depend on how many other contracts, if any are written on the house if you decide not to proceed with the purchase as to your bargaining power.

cheers

Thanks David,

I too am in Brisbane and have spoken with council who advised that they no longer carry this information and to speak with a Certifier in regards to this.

Next step at this stage is to contact a certifier and speak with them,

In relation to the contract negotiation i was first in and believe the property is priced well, i will not press hard to price reduction however every little bit counts.

Different states may have different rules (I really don't know) but in Sydney I'm pretty sure I'm right when I say that if extensions are attached to the house then they need council approval.

By this I mean adding extra rooms, pergolas etc that use the actual house to attach the new structure to for stability.

This would not include decking or stairs though. And when you say external laundry - is it a stand alone building or built on to the house on the outside. Actually attached to the house would need council approval, stand alone may not although all plumbing and electrical work would have had to be done by licensed tradespeople.

When there was some development going on next door to me I was on the phone often asking if they were allowed to cut down 2 trees that were well over 50 years old - NO, where they allowed to demolish the outbuilding, garage etc that were made of asbestos - NO and so on (had a great time - NOT - while all that was going on), but my point is they told me over the phone. A call to council is definitely in order - they'll soon let you know what you can and can't find out about the property.

Good luck
Olly
