When buying a property, especially a vacant site, a very important question to consider is 'can I build a dwelling house on the land?' - not all rural land has a legal right to have a dwelling erected upon the land. You may have seen or heard this referred to as a dwelling entitlement or as a building entitlement.
A dwelling entitlement refers to the potential for Council to approve a dwelling on a certain property. It is important for the community, and land-owners in particular, to understand that under current Local Environmental Plans (LEPs), rural zones are primarily used for rural production and not the construction of dwellings, unless a dwelling entitlement exists.
When we value rural land we always take into consideration the right to build on the land. If you need our help. Please call us on 0431 245460.
