There are a number of trade-secrets when it comes to ensuring seamless granny flat approvals for our clients. Unlike new home construction, new granny flats must be approved with careful consideration of all existing infrastructure and assets on the lot. Expert knowledge of the following is critical in granny flat approvals:
Careful reconnaissance of a property’s unique layout plays a major role in any new granny flat project. Failing to do this can affect the time it takes to complete the project and this lack of knowledge can result in very annoying and expensive changes to the approved plans. It is therefore vitally important that a granny flat company be intimately familiar with your property. Our staff are highly trained to know the legislation verbatim, to ensure that you maximise your profits whilst minimising any delays and costs.
Where others might demolish an ancillary structure (such as a garage) to make room for a new granny flat, our approvals team will carefully consider ways to preserve and even enhance existing assets in your back yard.
