http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-04/melbourne-man-buys-home-with-illegal-structures/10178320 What you all reckon ? As I've only ever sold 1 property and brought another, my oldman never cared about any council permits and made me extend the shed twice, after he died when we were selling his home I said to the real estate agent what about the buildings without permits he said every third house around here is like that don't worry about it. Shut up he said thing when I told him the gas heater was rooted and shouldn't be used. The bloke that brought my oldmans house knew there was no permit for some of the shed extensions at my fathers house I remember avoiding that question when I briefly spoke to him and gave him a permit for the previous part as he liked the extension he left it at that. The first house I wanted to buy my solicitor / conveyancer told me to run away because of no building permits for the sheds. The house I ended up buying the conveyancer showed me the plans and asked if thats all the building thats there she never went to the property's. It appears theres as many incompetent professionals as dodige mechanics. Or did he know and hes crying because he got caught?
