A granny flat can be defined as a fully self contained home extension or secondary dwelling that is built on the same lot of land that the main home is. Essentially, it is another, smaller home on your property, ideally suitable for elderly grandparents to live close by, or for a growing family requiring a teenager retreat.
Local councils will dictate what the maximum size of a granny flat can be – usually no more than 60 square meters in most states including NSW and VIC – notably more lenient in WA (70 square meters) and ACT (90 square meters).
In some states notably NSW and WA, granny flats are allowed to rent out which might be a smart way to significantly increase passive rental income for property investors.
