Help in buying house and land package please.

I might be wrong but there may be a drain at the corner of the block. Doesn’t indicate an easement at the back either as there is on lot 29.

2-4. See point 1.

I understand your thinking. You’ll need to research your state and council regulations regarding what plans you need to provide and if you need footing inspections etc.
