Moving a house
For some people, transporting a house to a new location is an attractive option. We look at the pros and cons, explain the process, and outline what consents are required.
Should you move an old house or a new house? And will it suit the site?
We take you through the steps of transporting an older house to a new location, including likely costs and objections from neighbours.
We explain the building consent requirements for removing and relocating an existing house. In some cases, you will also need resource consent. We also explain bonds which are a requirement of some local councils.
We look at the insurances required during the move, insurance for the renovation work, and what is required to transport a house on a public road.
