Duplex and Dual Occupancy

A Duplex is a single residential building with two dwellings under the one roof and a dividing wall between.

Also known as a dual occupancy, each side is a completely separate home, with its own entrance, amenities and yard.

Although it costs more to build a duplex than a single freestanding house, it’s usually cheaper than building two houses, and because both dwellings are on the same block, the land costs less than two separate lots.

Duplex and Dual Occupancy properties are sometimes on one title, meaning both halves must be sold together. If a duplex is subdivided into two separate titles, each home can be sold separately.

This can be done either during or after the build and adds instant value. Though you must check that the land is actually sub-dividable, as some duplex packages are not.

An additional benefit is that you are only paying Stamp Duty on the one block, not two.

For an owner occupier, a duplex offers opportunity to have family living under the same roof, though with some privacy & independence for each.

Multi-generational living arrangements are more commonplace in many parts of the world but are quietly emerging in Australia. At present one in almost five (18%) of households hold two generations. In Sydney, that increases to around 25% who live with multiple generations of relatives, while 9% hold three generations.

As an Investment, a duplex allows for two separate tenancies which halves any tenancy risk, as it is unlikely to have both vacant or with a problem tenant at the one time.

If you subdivide the block, you can sell one and draw a profit, or you can draw on the equity of either for another investment property deposit.
