We get a lot of enquiries from members of the public who have purchased an existing shed or building from another person, and re-erected it on their property.
Council then becomes involved and ask them to seek development approval retrospectively for the works.
This retrospective work is difficult to undertake and costly, and also may involve remedial works on the structure to ensure that it complies with current standards and appropriate loads.
We always recommend that people looking to relocate existing buildings obtain council development approval prior to undertaking the works to avoid this retrospective work and costly surprises down the track.
If you are considering purchasing and relocating a shed or other buildings, contact Magryn first to avoid any unexpected costs or surprises from your local Council.
