    Perth Granny Flat under NRAS

    I am seriously considering this and want to hear your thoughts. NRAS eligible ancillary dwellings for Disability or Aged Dependents from Questus. I went to see the Module yesterday, although small 45sqm it does have the advantage of being pre-built and it is possible to extend to a larger...

    Subdivide or granny flat?

    Last year we decided after our NRAS investment had been running for a year we would put a GF on our PPR block. Since then the town planning rules have changed so now we are revisiting that plan. Our block in Yangebup WA is 980sqm which was previously 200 short of the 1000 needed. Now I...

    NRAS bargains in Melbourne?

    Got this email today. May be an opportunity to pick up something worthwhile. It seems to me that some good NRAS deals are picked up by being on mailing lists and developing a relationship with various agents. The one I picked up was not advertised but was bought for 7K less than its original...

    Bad tiling job, what now?

    So we just had 45 sqm of kitchen/dining/passage floor tiled. I guess we got what we paid for, his was the lowest quote that we got from the list given us by the tile retailer but he also seemed like a very nice bloke. I don't suppose he meant to do a bad job *sigh* but if I had to live with...

    Old style kitchen exhaust fan

    We are doing a kitchen reno. Original build mid eighties. The cook top is in a chimney look recess and has an extractor fan. The fan has no ducting, it just extracts to the roof space. Needless to say after 30 odd years of sucking up grease the whole thing is pretty gross. Interested to hear...

    NRAS questions

    Just trying to get a clearer picture on the NRAS. Is it true that one could claim the full rebate no matter what the purchase price or rental income is? NRAS approved properties should be priced the same as non NRAS properties? Are there additional fees such as "consortium fees" that...

    Yikes CCGT! Will it apply to ancillary dwelling on PPOR

    I thought I'd better look into this before we commit to building and now I am more confused than ever. PPOR bought 2004 and moved into immediately. We have been in it ever since. Planning to put a granny flat on part of the land and rent it out. Rent will be minimum $250pw if we do a...

    What would you do with this property?

    With the changes to the R codes (as I understand it) this R20 950sqm block could eventually be subdivided but the house is in an awkward position. The house is a good solid double brick and tile 4x2 with a nice layout so probably worth keeping. I've added an Aeriel photo. Green is for level...

    How to finance a granny flat.

    I hope this is the right place to ask. We are looking at borrowing 100k to build a GF and do some landscaping to the front of the property. We have 45% equity in the existing property conservatively valued at around 460k (last bank valuation was 4 years ago and was 500k so I've knocked 8%...

    First Granny Flat Floorplan

    I wanted it spacious and I've designed this with the position on the block in mind. No windows overlooking any of my windows and the patio situated as far from our own living area as possible. I spent loads of time using floorplanner to design it. So now I'd love some feedback, does it look...

    Student/Group Housing (Perth)

    My previous post was deleted for soliciting funds, I didn't think I did as I was primarily looking for peoples experience with this type of investment. So I'll try again. Have you invested in the type of property suitable for students that is usually let on a room by room shared basis? I am...
