Granny flats are becoming increasingly popular in all parts of Queensland. The total M2 allowable for a new Granny Flat in Queensland can vary depending on the local Council.
The approximate M2 allowable is generally around the 60 M2 to 80 M2 range.
Sometimes it’s illegal to rent out a Granny Flat, but perfectly within local laws for a relative to occupy the residence or for it to be used as a home office. The laws regarding who can stay in a Granny Flat (based on relations) and who can’t vary on a Council to Council basis, so if you are considering installing one, it would be in your best interests to consult with the local housing authorities before beginning to plan your Granny Flat or commencing construction.
The information provided is general and specific local council consultation should be arranged.
