Hi, we are looking to build a new house and shed at the back of our property. We aren't sub dividing, just adding a new house for the kids to move into. It's 120sqm, so larger than a granny flat.
We have spoken with 2 builders - one said we need new connections for power, water, gas and sewerage (12k all up) and the other is sure we can run off the existing services.
Western Power and Water Corp all seem to concentrate on subdivisions, so have no info on a second dwelling.
Has anyone been down this path and can shed any light? We don't want to get any surprises.

From your post it is clear that they knew not to go there but did. I think they are liable but you may need to push the right buttons to get it.
