Is my house appropriate for a business?

A houseA house that is to be used both for living in and for running a business needs to be big enough to accommodate both uses.

You might like to consider the following list before you turn your home into a home based business:

  • Is there adequate parking available on site for your customers?
  • Is there adequate storage on site for your products?
  • Is there adequate room for your work space and that of any other employees?
  • Are you aware of any planning zones or overlays on your land that may prevent a home business or require a permit to be obtained?
