When you are trying to get your old home demolished there are a lot of things you have to think about. A lot of factors will influence the price of the demolition including the total area of your home, insulation material used, presence of asbestos and construction material used for your home. A demolitions service has to adhere to a lot of safety norms and take necessary precautions so it’s important to choose demolition contractors for the job.
Check for compliances
You cannot just demolish your old home whenever you want because there are going to be environmental repercussions. This is especially true if you live in an area with a lot of population density. Though the actual law will vary from state to state you will have to obtain an approval from your local council after submitting a DA with your actual demolition plan. If you are building a new home after the demolition and your builder agrees to get the paperwork done for you then you are in luck otherwise there is an average time span of 2 months to get necessary approvals. Once granted the approval will last for 5 years after which it has to be removed.
On the other hand you can pay a steep fee of 900 dollars and get a complying development (also known as CDC). It takes only 5 days to obtain a CDC.
