    Has anyone obtained stormwater access from neighbour?

    I called the REA and asked nicely (found out online - for rent ad for that neighbour). REA asked the owner, who told the tenants to cooperate. My plumbers and engineers went to their backyard with minimal distruption to access the stormwater manhole and did their things. Goodluck.

    Brisbane - QUU Infrastructure charges on 2 lot to 2 title "splitter" block

    Good for your William! Hard work paid off. But isn't it bad for other investors who were offered "discounts"? They are not consistent. It is still a sour approach by them. Heavy hearts for future investors who's gotta fight the same way.

    Brisbane - QUU Infrastructure charges on 2 lot to 2 title "splitter" block

    Please keep posting WilliamB. I like your style. Don't take any crap. I'm looking at Brisbane for a small development this year. What's a splitting block? Is it a duplex site? Battle axe land subdividing? Just not very familar with QLD. Thanks.

    Subdivision on Odd Shaped Block

    Is $475-525k for 2 x 4 bedroom houses or just one house? Why is double story more expensive? (Might sound like a silly question but hey - gotta ask). Thanks!

    Does Brisbane still stack up?

    Hi Jerrybee, Wow, that's almost a $1m if I wanna buy in now in Robertson or Sunnybank. I didn't expect that much capital growth for a suburb in Brisbane either. That's equivalent to inner city Leichhardt or Newtown here in Sydeny! But what's causing this price increase in Robertson /...

    Thanks for digging this a bit further for me Serge. I rang to pay the fees just now anyway - let's just get it over and done with and start the build. There's no one able to take payment over the phone so they'll call me back today with their EFPOTS machine person. :\
