Hi, all, I need an advise if someone had the same issue with leasing granny flat in Melbourne(Frankston City Council). The property was bought 5 years ago with well build self-contained Granny flat. We have leased it separately. Didn’t have any issues for 5 years but recently tenant didn’t get along with neighbours across the road and some complains went to the city council. First we get the rates separate on the granny flat and payed them. Then the request came to inspect the property - city council inspector together with building inspector. They told us that the granny flat had a building permit for the dependent person (believe that any granny flat in Victoria has the same permit) and can’t be rented separately. We are still waiting on the letter from the council and building inspector but during the discussion they already indicated that the granny flat should be removed or the cooking facilities should be removed, then the building can stay. Not sure why city council charges us a separate rates if they believe that granny flat should not be leased? Besides us loosing the income, it sounds crazy to me not able to provide perfectly good accommodation when we have such a shortage for the low cost rentals. I believe that we have thousands and thousands of granny flats rented in Victoria, are they all illegal? Anyone else has/had the same issue? What are my options? Can I put my tenants on one contract and then have a separate contract every time tenant in the house or granny flat changes? Any other suggestions, please?
