Add value with a second dwelling on your property

Take advantage of that extra space on your property by building a minor dwelling - add value, earn extra income or accommodate family members.

What is a minor dwelling?

A minor dwelling is a second unit built on the same title, detached to the primary residence.  It has its own bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, separate water and electricity meter. The average size of a minor dwelling is 60-65sqm, and varies depending on the zone you're living in.

A minor dwelling is the perfect solution for you if:
  • You would like to earn some extra income from renting out a second house on the same site as your own
  • You have a growing family or elderly parents that you would like to take care of, while still having your own privacy and independence
  • You would like to add value to your property, but don't want to extend your existing house
