Dual Occupancy Homes

Dual Occupancy Homes

More space, dual income and ready to move in

Dual occupancy homes refer to any residential dwelling that allows for two homes on a single property.

Also known as ‘dual homes’ or ‘multi-dwelling residences’, dual occupancy homes can be attached side-by-side or contain two separate dwellings.

A duplex can also sometimes be referred to as a dual occupancy home, however, the distinction lies in having separate titles where the land can be subdivided.

Dual occupancy homes can be tandem, where one is located behind the other, with a driveway allowing access to both houses on the side of the property.

Dual homes are a great option for knockdown rebuilds, where you have a sizeable parcel of land and are thinking of renting out one of the dwellings for dual income.

Alternatively, dual occupancy homes allow your growing family or extended family to live in close proximity with the advantage of having separate living spaces.

Less red tape and faster turnaround for medium density homes

To help facilitate the development of high quality living communities, the NSW Government has provided a Low Rise Housing Diversity Code (formerly the Low Rise Medium Density Housing Code). The code fast tracks housing approval and in turn saves owners/investors time and money.

Dual occupancy homes are considered medium density, which means there are now faster pathways towards building a duplex or multi-dwelling complex.
