Non-compliant rooms can affect your resale

  • This relatively new unit in a large complex was advertised by the selling agent as a two bedroom unit, when in fact it is only compliant with the local building code and Council requirements as a one bedroom unit.

The nature and seriousness of this problem may potentially hinder a future resale and possibly affect the selling price, considerably!
