Hi guys, please bear with me as I am new at this. We have an old house that we are awaiting its planning permit for 3 townhouses in Melbourne. I've spoken to some land surveyors and they have been giving me different answers. Here are my questions: 1) Because we are selling it off the plan, does that mean we need to get subdivision done after planning permit approval and before applying for building permits and construction? 2) I heard for subdivision to be approved before construction, we will first need to demolish the house then provide services (drainage etc...) to the 3 lots before it will be approved. Is that true? 3) If true, does that mean I will need to get a building permit for the demolishing first and supplying the services then get the main building permit for construction later on? 4) So in essence, I will only be able to sell the townhouses AFTER subdivision is approved isn't it? Which could be after tearing the house down, providing services, subdivision approval. Thank you very much guys, any help will be highly appreciated.
