Hi Mums, My partner and I are looking into different options to purchase our first home, and he’s pretty set on using a company who come in, pick up a house from a block where the landowner are going to demolish, then sell and relocate them to your property. There are some really nice houses, but I was wondering whether anyone had any actual experience with this and how they went about it- council approval, who disconnects the plumbing etc before the house is relocated etc etc.

  • Interesting idea, but see if you could Google it, or go to local council for advice.

  • yes it is so expensive to move, that is why most houses are “free” but i would look into it any way.

  • I have not experienced this and do not know of anyone who has done this – but it is an interesting option. Maybe join an online forum for people that have done this as they may have so valuable information and experiences to share with you!

  • I sort of looked into it fir my son. There was a house being given away but the buyer had to go and get it. Ended up being way too expensive with just moving costs :/
