Knock down rebuild set backs

Mark Bryson - Thursday, February 26, 2015

There are many factors and considerations that need to be investigated when proposing a knock down rebuild. One major item that is often overlooked by purchasers is the setbacks of the joining properties dwellings. 

The setbacks of the neighbouring properties will determine the front setback for your new build. The existing setbacks if too large can in some cases impact the ability to build a second dwelling at the rear of the proposed knock down rebuild site, which would have a significant impact on the properties profitability.
