MINOR/SECONDARY DWELLINGS

Take advantage of that extra space on your property by building a minor dwelling- this adds value or can be for a growing family. No matter what choice, we are here to help you.A minor/secondary dwelling is the perfect solution for you if:

  • You would like to earn some extra income from renting out a second house on the same site as your own
  • You have a growing family or elderly parents that you would like to take care of, while still having your own privacy and independence
  • You would like to add value to your property, but don’t want to extend your existing house

Take advantage of that extra space on your property by building a minor dwelling– this adds value or can be for a growing family. No matter which, we are here to help. The secondary dwelling is a separate living area which is smaller and subordinate to the primary house. A secondary dwelling is commonly known as a granny flat or family accommodation. Secondary dwellings have been commonly used as a method for allowing more flexible living arrangements and creating a potential for additional income for the main household.We are an experienced team who can assist you to find the right plan that will suit your specific needs. For our clients the news is good: the new Unitary Plan is going to provide fresh opportunities to add value to your property, although not necessarily in the same way we’re presently doing it. The proposed changes would be a big departure, calling for converted dwellings with a three-metre shared wall instead of minor dwellings – but this is not yet confirmed.
