Hope someone can shed some light about the timeframes for Building permits.
Here is the story...I bought land in melbourne west which is already titled. I have signed the contract with PD on 20th June. The CSR called me a week later and said they have to apply for building permit because I chose higher ceilings and my garage was too close to the boundary (or something like that), which would cost $650. Has anyone had this?
My second question is how long would it take to get the building permits? Its been nearly 2 months since i've signed the contract and more than a month I've settled my land and waiting for the building permit. When I contact PD for a timeframe, they have been saying next few days for a month now.
I am sitting ducks and paying the interest on the land which is not an ideal situation.
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!
This is a hard one coz every council has different requirements. Do you know if there are any planning overlays on you titled land? Your next door neighbour may need to sign off on it and this may cause delays.
PD is in the business of building houses and they won’t delay things coz they want to get paid. If I was you I would get a contract phone number of the person PD is dealing with and ask them why it’s taking so long
