Hi All, I live in Sydney and have recently noticed a lot of houses either being sold or leased as upper and lower duplex. I checked on few of them and checked with council and found that out of 4 houses i checked only 1 was council approved for that arrangement. I spoke to few real estate agents about how that can work and the fact that most of those houses didn't have council approvals but they said it will still rent out. The only thing is to find the right tenants. One agent even pointed out that he has one property rented out like that for the last 4 years and never had any issues. The yields on those properties are pretty attractive. Has anyone on the forum had experience with this type of duplex and what they thought positives and negatives were? How did you divide utilities? I understand that can be considered like attached Granny Flat but the floor space on all of them was more than allowed 60sqm.
