So what is the difference between a granny flat and a townhouse? It’s a great question and I’d love to answer it. My name is Colin Fragar from Council Approval Group. So if you are looking at a property and you want to understand what’s the difference between a granny flat and a townhouse, I’ve got some thoughts for you today.

What Are Granny Flats and Townhouses

A townhouse is more than two dwellings on the same title, which are usually strata titled. And a townhouse may be attached or detached. A granny flat, though, is associated with the main dwelling and it can also be attached or detached. So what’s the difference between a granny flat and a townhouse? A townhouse you can sell. You can own it individually. It can be sold off. A granny flat always needs to be on the property with the principal dwelling, so it doesn’t create as much freedom for you.
