Why do people create granny flats?

There are 3 primary scenarios where people contact us for granny flats. It is due to:

  • A rental property and/or long-term investment.
  • Housing elderly parents.
  • Housing young adults, usually with a child on the way.

Of course, the flat can be used to care for family members and also serve as a rental property, to finally serve as a long-term investment. It’s quite a versatile move to make.

The name ‘granny flat’ came from the original most common use - to keep grannies close by where they could be taken care of. Technically, they are referred to as Accessory Dwelling Units (‘ADU’).

What are the drawbacks of granny flats in Sydney?

There are practically no disadvantages to granny flats in Sydney. This is true once you work with a reputable builder that offers fully featured flats and is licenced and insured, like Bellcast Granny Flats. The last thing you want is to pay $100,000 for a granny flat that is poorly designed, without inclusions. You could then have to pay another $30,000 - $50,000 to fix everything up again, with added stress. If something is not done right initially, it will continually take its toll due to inferior quality - every single day.

What is the Bellcast Granny Flats Philosophy?

Our philosophy is actually quite simple. We make the best use of space and design to build granny flats that are high quality yet extremely affordable and quick to complete. We are a direct, efficient, and fast moving business that provides high-quality granny flats in Sydney. We could have focused on many different kinds of construction, but we focused on the one that represents the best value for money and the most intelligent move overall - the granny flat. You will benefit from our expertise and direct approach to efficient granny flat design and execution.  

How long will it take for the Bellcast granny flat to be complete?

The design, form submission, and construction can all be done within 14 weeks or so (3.5 months). In contrast, the design, submission, and construction of a regular house can take closer to 12 months, provided you already have a plot of land to build on! The time for completion will also be affected by the size and scope, and whether you opt for a 1, 2, or 3 bedroom granny flat in Sydney.

Do I need council approval?

In NSW, you do not need council approval once your dwelling is more than 450 square metres in total area. You also need to have at least 12 metres of road frontage and be located in a residential zone. Once these requirements are met, you don’t actually need council approval and are fit to build, according to certain specifications. We can fill you in on all of these details. You can also convert a garage or another area into a granny flat, and there are many creative ways around planning obstructions.
