Minor dwellings have been growing as a popular investment opportunity to maximise property value, provide family members with a home in a busy market, or provide rental income.
If you’re looking for extra space for family, a home office, or a rental investment, you might have thought of building a minor dwelling on your property, so where do you start and what should you know? We asked the team at G.J. Gardner.
Q: Can I Build A Minor Dwelling On My Property?
A: This is largely dependent on council rules around zoning for your specific area and whether it is going to be a separate building or integrated under the same roofline as the main house.
Q: What Size Can A Minor Dwelling Be?
A: This is largely dependent on council rules around zoning for your specific area. For example, in Auckland a minor dwelling must be under 65m2, including the laundry. This excludes garaging, so it is possible to have one or more garage bays attached to a minor dwelling.
There are plenty of other questions you might have, so reach out to your local G.J. Gardner team who can guide you through your options.
