Hi
we heard about so many times about people buying a house and transport it to their property :)
can anyone tell me what exactly we have to look for before buying a house and what should we financially include in it (water, power, septic...) and what would the price expectations be for doing something like that :confused:

thanks

I moved my house on to my block of land, almost 10 years ago now. WOW how time can fly.

My advice is

Talk to your council about what you need to do, it can differ. They can also offer advice on the type of septic system that is best for your area and land. Going with what they sugest can make things a lot easier.

And Buy a house that is what you want, not one that you will have to alter lots. Can be cheaper to build if you need to change it lots.

Also use a well known and well liked transporter with a good reputation.

I had a very good experience, but I do know people that did not. But then that can happen if you buy ready made, build or what ever

Life is about the journey, not the destination

9 acres
6 ponies (Lucy, Amanda, Angel, Sophie, Kaimanawa Tika and Kaimanawa Te Ata)
4 donkeys (Eeyore Barti, Bonnie and Kenya)
2 mules (Zebidi and Las Vegas of Peach Hill)
1 cats (Mr Kincaide )
1 dog (Nina)
Ducks, (George, Kate and Emma)
and 2 quail...

A building inspection report by a proper building inspector prior to purchase of house. One not too long ago on TM full of borer.

Previously posted here, for someone looking to relocate a home.

when ours was moved on, council demanded building consent and did full inspection prior to shift.. with long list of things to fix prior to sign off..

Hi, as previously mentioned check with the council in the area that the house is going to as there will be rules as to whether it has to be repainted with a certain time and bought up to a certain standard within that time. You possibly will have to pay a bond, and that is refundable when you get the final Code of Compliance. Cheers.

Hi there,
We transported a house successfully :-) My advice would be to talk to as many people as you can. Make sure you have quotes to move the house that take all aspects into account (location, difficulty etc) talk to the council and get as much information as you can and ideas of costs. Get a really good architect to look at your ideas, quote from the electricity provider, get a soil test done so you can get an accurate idea of what your septic costs will be. As for the house, make sure a builder inspects, get quotes from a plumber and electrician also as that is quite expensive - and it helps if you love the house :-) My man is a builder so that kept our costs down but there is a lot of work involved (depending on the house and what you want to alter etc) We had ours cut in half and transported and then added to it along with changing the layout etc so there was a lot involved - but we love our home and we have a lot less debt from doing it all ourselves. I have book with everything in it, things do differ between councils but I can give you heaps of info, ask away. GOOD LUCK :)
