Every person dreams about building his/her own home someday. People spend days by planning and discussing the interior designs for their house with their family until their dreams come true. They sit with the architects until they find the perfect design for their home. However, the most important thing to build a house is to buy the land first. Hence, before building the house, land information search has to be done to get a suitable location for building the house because if the location of the house is not good, it will affect the health and lifestyle of the family. People keep their eyes on the new land release Melbourne published in the newspapers or websites until they find the desired location to build their dream house.
The biggest challenge for the purchasers of the land is to match their requirements with the traits of the land they are going to buy. Many of them end up suffering later as they have no idea about the problems related to the lands. For example, encroachment is one of the most common problems faced by the owners of the lands. Sometimes, a part of the house like sheds or fences of the land can be located on the neighbours’ land. This type of issue is called encroachment. If it happens for a long time, the owner might lose his/her right on that part of land or house. Another common problem faced after the land information search is the inconsistency about the land size. After getting information from new land release Melbourne and visiting the land, people might think this the perfect land for their house, but when they get the contract, sometimes the size of the land mentioned in the contract is different from the land size mentioned in information, which they have got from online or offline advertisements. Another type of problems regarding the land which nobody wants to face is the legal issues and restrictions such as:
- There are some legal issues between the previous owners
- The land can only be utilized for some specific purposes
- There are restrictions on the materials used for building the house
Sometimes, these restrictions depend on the zone where the land is located. For example, if the land resides in a rural zone, the planning scheme might strictly require the connection to a water supply. Another problem faced during building the house is the time limit. According to the contract, there might be a certain time limit mentioned for building the house on the land, which can be difficult for the land owned.
While purchasing the land and building the house, the following things need to be checked:
- The actual area of the land.
- Whether the boundaries of the land are marked properly by using walls or fences.
- Whether there is any possibility of arising any problem related to encroachment.
- If any legal problems exist related to the land.
- How much time is required to build the house?
