Has your block had a Soil Test and Feature Survey?

Before you can demolish your old home, a Soil Test and Contour Survey need to be completed. The Soil Test examines the kind of soil on your block, this test is important because it helps us to decide what kind of foundations your new home will have. 

Do you need a council or local government permit to demolish the existing dwelling?

Do you need a council or local government permit?

Yes. However, usually your demolition contractor will organise this permit for you, and process it faster because of their experience in dealing with the local government. 

PRO TIP: Make sure you have both a Demolition Permit and a Building Permit before you demolish (both can be obtained from your local council or shire).

What will your demolition costs be?

Ensure that you include the cost of the demolition in your overall knockdown rebuild home budget. Sometimes surprise costs can affect the price of demolition including established and/or protected trees, location of utilities such as electrical or sewage, neighbouring structures, land overlay etc.

PRO TIP: Ask your demolition contractor to visit your site first and create a comprehensive quote. The quote should be detailed and include absolutely everything in the demolition project. This includes such variables as cost of permits, cost of labour and equipment, cost of removing materials and estimated worth of salvageable items.

Do you need traffic management?

Is your demolition insured?
