A lifestyle block or ‘plot’ is generally a smallholding in the country and is often undeveloped.
When purchasing a lifestyle block you should know what the future development plans are around the area. There are times when people buy a lifestyle block only to find out that the area around it has been zoned for Industrial purposes.
There are many issues that go with buying a lifestyle block that you need to be aware of.
Here are four key things to consider:
- Deciding whether or not to register for GST.
- The types of resource consent required for land use, water and sewage disposal.
- Resource Management Act (RMA) planning requirements to make sure that you can carry out the activities you intended for your Lifestyle Block.
- Know what the neighbours can or cannot do.To get your Lifestyle Block or Plot conveyancing sorted, give us a call 09 267 2700 or contact us.
