Granny flat agreement

Monday, 1 March 2021

If you’re in the process of building a granny flat, you would’ve heard the term “granny flat agreement” been thrown around a few times. This is because it is an important part of the granny flat process.

To solidify the living arrangements of the granny flat, a granny flat agreement or granny flat interest would need to be put in place. It is most commonly settled when elderly parents are given accommodation by their adult child. This is often in exchange for payment or assets, and everyone involved should be notified and should “sign off” on this agreement.

Centrelink would have to be notified about the arrangement as well, as they encourage people to stay out of supported care. This could potentially help your situation further.

To make things a little easier for you, we thought to provide you with a basic sample granny flat agreement. This sample granny flat agreement might give you an idea of the questions to take into consideration when you begin planning your own.

We highly recommend speaking with the professionals before signing any papers. Our team would be more than happy to guide you into the right direction. If you have a more complicated scenario, we’d suggest speaking with a solicitor.
