There are a few ways to subdivide and the most common is where an existing dwelling is retained and a new title of land is created directly behind, with a driveway running down the side of the property. This type of subdivision is commonly known as a Battle Axe Block.
Corner sites provide great opportunities for subdivision because of the street access, be it a duplex, triplex or more.
There are also occasions in which a retain and build can be completed to one side of an existing house, however its rare given Perth blocks are typically narrowest at the street-front.
There are three different types of subdivision in Perth that are relevant to the small scale investor. Each have their pros and cons and can be categorized as one of the following:
Involves land with multiple properties that have no common areas needing to be shared. These are typically the most expensive subdivision and have the slowest turnaround time.
Often used in small developments, where properties share services such as sewer, power and water. Costs vary based on the project and can take between 6 to 18 months.
Can be the easiest way to subdivide a block but relies on having the buildings completed before boundary lines are drawn. It requires the developer to fund the build upfront.
The subdivision process can take between 7 and 18 months in WA and having an experienced subdivision consultant assisting with applications and approvals will ensure your project is progressing as quickly as possible, whilst maximising your opportunity. This timeline can increase due to a number of factors including:
The actual time it takes to complete the subdivision process is relatively minor but what takes most of the time are the processes involved with the applications and dealing with the statutory bodies involved in the subdivision process.
