Here’s what you need to know about dual occupancy zoning.

My name is Colin Fragar, from the Council Approval Group.

And if you are searching the internet right now, if you’re thinking about doing a dual occupancy, you’re probably wondering whether or not you can achieve a dual occupancy on your property.

My best advice for you is to not try to do it yourself. Rather, we specialize in this area and we’ve done thousands of dual occupancies before.
Just because you can get a dual occupancy in your particular zone does not mean you can get dual occupancy.

Avoid the Beginner’s Mistake with Dual Occupancy Zoning

It’s an important point there because many novice investors, many people who are just starting out in this game, read down the land use table that they have in the planning document from council, they say ‘Oh, it says dual occupancy. That means I can have dual occupancy.’ They look at their contract of sale and it says it says dual occupancy is allowed with council consent. Just because it’s allowable doesn’t mean it’s actually going to get approved.

There’s probably 20 to 50 other things that council will look at to determine whether you can get dual occupancy. And so what I’d like to do is to give you a clear roadmap going forward.

To do that what you need to do is book in for your free consultation with the Council Approval Group. We’ll go through what your needs are and what you’re trying to achieve. Then we’ll recommend to you what we call our Preliminary Planning Assessment, what that does is it takes all of the guesswork out of it for you.
