The Right Duplex For Your Block
Building a duplex involves sub-dividing, to allow for two homes to be built on one piece of land. The two types of subdivision that are regularly built in Perth are side-by-side, and house-behind-house.
Side-By-Side duplex designs are, as the name suggests, building two dwellings that sit next to each other on the property. This often involves subdividing the land into two titles so that each dwelling can be sold separately.
House-behind-house, also commonly known as ‘battle-axe’ or ‘rear-strata’, involves constructing two dwellings, with one located behind the other. This often provides additional privacy and security. If you have an existing dwelling, with a large amount of backyard space – a rear-strata development might be the right option for you, constructing an additional home behind your existing one which can then be rented or sold.
R-Codes & Subdividing Your Block
The best way to check if your property is eligible for subdivision – is to find it’s R-Code. We’ve produced a helpful guide on residential zoning codes for Perth. This will determine how much land you require in order to subdivide your land.
