Hi our parents finally have their visas through to move out and join us in Oz, very excited but the sudden realisation has just hit me as to where are we all going to live
The parents have this master plan that we all buy a house together that has a granny flat at the end of the garden for them to live in and we live in the main house with the kids but it seems to me that looking at real estate.com these places just don't exist. Have started doing some initial research on whether this is feasible and was wondering if anyone else had done something similar?
The way I see it there are a two major problems (other than having your parents on your doorstep!)
1) There seems to be a shortage of exisiting properties with a granny flat on does anyone know of any that exist?
2) If you wanted to buy some land and build your own I have been told by real estate agents that councils don't like approving two dwellings on the same block, has anyone else experienced this?
If anyone has attempted to build something with a granny flat on or has bought a place with one already on it would be a great help to hear how you got on.
