Níl aon tóin tinn mar do thóin tinn féin
Ive been trying to get my block subdivided for two years... Council and planners and heritage advisers all conspiring to make it a monumental headfuck...
Between the chunts, they have worked it out how to extract every bit of equity or if you have little equity, leave you with 2 houses with severe negative equity.Bureaucrats are the good guys, remember? Just wait until you deal with the tradies.
It just wasn't worth doing in the end, the 3 builders I spoke to knew what I was trying to do and all three had similar extortionate pricing for completely different houses.
The council had their oar in and massive fees for everything, including 20k just to subdivide the title.
The basic off the plan house advertised at $209k ends up at $380k, its a business that needs a shake up like they way the Real Estate business got their wings clipped a few years ago.
