When you’re considering building a property on your block, a duplex can be an excellent option:
- Duplexes can be popular options for first home buyers, buyers on a budget, or those looking for a low maintenance home, making them more likely to sell
- A duplex can be a strong investment strategy, as you’re creating the potential for two rental properties, delivering you a stronger rental yield
- Duplexes can be constructed in a shorter time frame, when compared with two separate homes
So if you’re considering building a duplex on your property, you’re in luck. In 2020, the New South Wales Government delivered the Low Rise Housing Diversity Code (formerly the Low Rise Medium Density Housing Code). Under this revised code, this allows well-designed duplex developments to be undertaken under a fast-tracked Complying Development Approval
This was undertaken to provide alternative housing types to traditional freestanding houses, and provide more choice for consumers.
There’s never been a better time to build. At CIVAC, we make it easy for you to achieve approval for your duplex. Here’s how we do it.
