This episode is for anyone who is even remotely considering buying a property to renovate, or perhaps renovating at some point in the future. And it’s ALSO for anyone who is looking at buying a property which has already recently been renovated.
My first guest is Rebeka. She’s a registered builder who develops for profit, and also runs Buildher Collective which is a business who teach women how to do the same. We run through why you need to know about zoning and overlays before you start considering a reno, the different types of permits you might need, the difference between cosmetic and structural renovations, how to not overcapitalise and our top renovating tips.
And later in the episode I chat to Laura from Nest Legal about what we need to understand from a legal perspective if we’re buying a property which has already recently been renovated. There’s certain paperwork which the vendor needs to provide, and it’s actually up to you to speak to your legal representative about this. Your legal rep hasn’t been through the property, they haven’t been speaking to the agent, so you need to work with them to make sure that you’ve got all of the information you need, because with property it’s buyer beware.
