Developments by Dale Alcock’s tips for people with property subdivision plans:
• Consider working with a builder who is not only experienced in residential property development, but can also handle everything involved in the subdivision process from start to finish. Look for a builder who also guarantees your property developments will be built on time and on budget.
• Identify early on any hidden nasties and unexpected problems associated with the block of land you plan to develop as these could end up having a major impact on your budget and the potential for property development.The information might not change your mind about the block, but at least you will be armed with all the facts.
• Get a clear picture of what is already provided on the block in terms of key services and whether you will need to relocate any water, power, sewer or gas infrastructure, for example.
• Find out about any changes that might happen in the future that could affect your development, such as road widening, heritage area requirements, noise impact and split zoning. You can then plan and budget.
