You have decided to take the next step and upgrade your home. Exciting times ahead!

Renovated properties or properties ‘ripe’ for renovation can be a minefield if the terms of the Contract for sale are not thoroughly reviewed. It is possible to purchase a property with an illegal structure or conversion. The law in respect of this area is known as “Caveat Emptor” – Buyer Beware.

At Vogue Conveyancing we focus on what your intentions are for the property. For example, adding an extra room, pergola or swimming pool. Knowing these details ensures that we can tailor our advice to your circumstances.

In our experience, areas which commonly do not have final certifications or where vendors have not obtained council approval for building works include:

  • Swimming pools, spas
  • Pergolas
  • Decks
  • Additional toilet or en-suite to a garage, studio, home office or under stair area.
  • Conversion of garages into habitable rooms
  • Conversion of attic spaces into bedrooms
  • Building works generally which can be done by a DIY handyman
