Hi All i am new member on this forum and its really great to see that some of the members of this forum are so much helpful to others.. i bought a property in Rowville, Victoria couple of years back in medium density residential zone. recently i was approached by a land developer and he made me an offer to buy the property. He mentioned that he can build 3 to 4 townhouses on my land. I didn't accept the offer but it made me thinking that should i do sub development myself ? As i do not have any information regarding subdivision, i would greatly appreciate if anyone can help me here: 1. i tried to contact couple of builders and they advised me that they can not give me quote for construction costs. how can i make sue that i am ready for the project ? 2. i checked on council website and it says that one has to start construction within 2 years of getting planning permit. is it true ? 3. what should be the starting point for me - should i go to an architect and get drafts done and get planning permit first and also subdivide block and when i will be financially ready, can I do constructions ? 4. can anyone recommend me architect, builder and broker so that i can assess where am i standing. any piece of your advise by you will be like treasure to me.. Thanks heaps in advance!!
