    Hi Friends,

    I was just wondering if we can put a business signage(business related to health services) in front of our house? if yes where do we have to take permission? and also do we have to get permission from house owner or real estate agent?

    Looking forward for your wonderful help.

    Thanks
    Pinky

    It depends on your local council first. You need to check their requirements – it’s usually a restriction on size and location of the size.
    If you are renting you will also have to consult the real estate agent (do they know you run a business?), however it would be best to find out the details from council first.

    Yes, you do need to check with your council. Why not look your local council up on the web and see what they have to say? My local council has quite an informative website and hopefully yours will too.

    After that, if you are renting, you should contact your agent or landlord as well. If you’re doing something health related does that mean you’ll have clients/patients coming to your house? If so, there will be other requirements relating to number of rooms used, the availability of amenities, insurances and so on. There will be quite a few things you need to put into place first before you can start.

    Have a careful read of your lease and make an anonymous enquiry to the council.

    Friend of mine use to run a business from a rental home and from what I remember he used to have a sign on the front of the house (on the wall) and that wasn’t a problem. If you are doing digging and wanting to place a 2m long signage I doubt any landlord or council will allow that.
    Contacting your local council will probably be the best starting point.

    Best of luck,

    In residential areas the maximum permitted sign is quite small, somewhere around 300mm x 200mm. It varies from council to council. Most councils don’t police such local laws, instead they respond to residents complaints so, make sure you are on good terms with your neighbours and speak to them before you put up the sign.

    If you make a quick call to your council, and a quick call to your landlord/real estate agent, you’ll have your answers in 5 minutes.

    Someone said something about insurance, which is critically important.

    As other have said, contact the council. If you place signage on the verge aswell, the council can sometimes take the sign and you wont get it back until you pay a fine.

    i know you can have an Aframe inside your property, if it is on the nature strip you could be fined, i had a sign fixed to the fence and was told to take it down and apply for a permit, but the aframe on the front lawn was fine, no permit was needed.
