Palmer Bruyn has extensive knowledge in the laws, rules and regulations for dual occupancy subdivisions. It is essential that the finalisation of the subdivision is completed expeditiously to avoid additional costs. The subdivision of a dual occupancy development may appear to be a relatively simple procedure; this is certainly not the case. There are numerous methods of subdivisions available to the developer, each with its own ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ and significant cost implications for the development as well as significant market value implications. A shift in the position of a dividing boundary only a couple of metres can add thousands of dollars to the cost of the development. Requirements of Council and the various utility authorities can vary substantially with the configuration of the subdivision which can prove costly.

Palmer Bruyn has conducted extensive dual occupancy survey work in all areas.
