The average demolition cost for demolishing a house of less than 1,000 sq. feet is $4,000 to $ 15,000. While its rebuilding cost is $40,000 to $175,000. Depending on the rebuild specifications the total demolition and rebuild cost is $44,000 to $190,000.

For a knockdown and rebuild you would generally allow around eight to 12 months. If the building is subject to planning approval, this can extend the time considerably.

Unless your property is free and clear from all liens or encumbrances, your mortgage is secured to the structure as well as the land. Your lender has an interest in the building itself, so you cannot unilaterally destroy the lender's security without permission.

No, stamp duty fees do not apply when knocking down and rebuilding a home on an existing site.

This might be through savings, by budgeting your income, or by borrowing extra money. If you already have a mortgage, you may be able to borrow more, up to 85% of the value of your home (including your current mortgage). Think carefully before securing other debts against your home.
