Certification plays a large role in the Sydney housing market these days. It’s quite interesting actually to know that a large percentage of developments that are happening are being approved through CDC Comply and Development. The roles that different certifications play depending solely on the land and the type of construction that is in being submitted to be approved. Different types of construction require essentially different requirements as when your building a pair of duplexes it's quite different when your building a single story home. The variations in design and compliance are very different. A single story home is quite easier to meet the requirements then a duplex as the duplex is essentially a two homes attached or semi attached to each other which in effect again will require different requirements to be meant for certification to be issued.
Residential Certificates are being developed over such cases as, If you are planning to build a duplex, triplex, townhouse, villa.
Duplex is a house which has been designed in such a manner that is suitable for two families that can be one for your family and one for investment this is a very common practice in the Australian market.
A triplexis a dwelling composed of three apartments which makes it suitable for the lifestyle of three different families maybe on 3 separate floors.
A townhouse is a house of which both land and building are being owned by the owner. A townhouse is built as a replica of detached or semi detached house.
