About Balmain East

Balmain East is located within the Leichhardt region as part of the Sydney (C) Local Government Area.

Properties in affluent areas tend to be built to a much higher standard than elsewhere. The result is that construction costs are might higher on a per square metre basis. The number one advantage of overcapitalising on renovations or purchasing a property with a high construction cost is depreciation. Essentially, the more money is spent on the construction, the higher the deductions are likely to be. This area is also dominated by townhouses as a property type. Townhouses are a great middle ground when comparing houses and units. Deductions per square meter for townhouses are often higher than houses due to the fact they have smaller open spaces which makes the construction costs higher per square metre. As with units, townhouses also have the added benefit of being eligible for deductions on common areas with items such as lights, driveways, pools, garden irrigation and automatic gates being some of the possible deductions available.

Yes! Unless we can find double our fee worth of depreciation deductions, we’ll cancel the report without charge! Our first step starts with an analysis of your potential claims.

The short answer is no. It is correct to say that the newer a property is, the more depreciation deductions you are likely to be able to claim. However, a property will generally always attract some amount of depreciation regardless of age, unless it is a very old property in completely original condition.
