    Hello everyone!

    I’m an artist and I run a small business. I’m currently running my business from a home studio in Victoria.

    There is a building that I’m interested in buying to use as a new studio space. It was a council building and it’s the local council that are selling it at auction. It’s zone is RZ1. It has a toilet and kitchen but no bathroom. I will not live there or even sleep there.

    My question is does anyone know if I’m able to use this property as a studio? Do councils have issues with people using a building for business purposes that are RZ1? I know that you cannot live in a building that does not have a shower/bath. Will this somehow have an effect on buying the property and then just using it as a place to work from.

    I don’t want to have it open to trade or anything, there will be no signage etc. I just want to be able to use it for my art practice. This doesn’t involve noisy machinary etc.

    I just want to know what I’m up against before I go to council and start asking questions.

    cheers

    Lilly

    Ask the council (different councils might have different regulations) or the real estate agent should be able to tell you or find out the information for you as well

    If you can get me the address privately then I will have my Victorian office have a quick look at the property and get back to you through who so others can see the answers (with all identifying info removed)
