Looking at an investment property on a big block. The current 1960's house has the standard approx. 400mm eaves, with about 150mm of guttering, however as we'd like to subdivide the block at the back, we need 3.5m from the eaves/gutters to the boundary fence. With the current eaves/gutters it's 2.95m, well short of what's required.
If we can remove the eaves and have a gutter in-line with the wall of the house then we will JUST get 3.5m.
Has anyone else done this sort of thing before, and if so, what tips/suggestions do you have?
Appreciate any assistance.

I finally found the council's guidelines and it stipulates 3.6m...well that adds another spanner to the works. The boundary to wall is 3.5m, so even changing the guttering won't provide the clearance.

This would create a need for a box gutter scenario, which we try to avoid at all costs as once they fail (Matter of when not if) they leak into the home and can cause significant damage
