Finding The Right Property For Your New Practice

Finding the perfect property for your practice

Setting up a new practice can bring many challenges, not the least of which is finding a suitable property in the right location.  

Finding the right property for your practice

Property Search Criteria

When searching for new premises, there are many factors to consider.

  • Do I buy or rent a property?
  • Does the location have the demographic for the practice I want to create?
  • How much space do I need for my clinic?
  • Does the planning scheme allow my clinic at this location?
  • Does the property have appropriate infrastructure, parking, power etc.

Engage Industry Experts

By engaging industry experts at an early stage you can greatly reduce the stress and avoid some pitfalls when finding a suitable property for your new practice.

Because designing and building healthcare practices is all we do, Elite understands the important criteria that will ensure a property is suitable for a medical, dental or veterinary clinic. Using this criteria we can discuss the pros and cons of a particular site with you. 

We can also advise you of properties that are not suitable thereby saving you stress, time and avoiding the risk of committing to a lease or purchase of a property that simply doesn’t work.


A key consideration when researching potential properties is the applicable zoning and planning regulations. 

Of course, sometimes the location, size and shape are just perfect but the planning scheme does not currently permit the use you require.   Applying for a change in zoning can often lead to lengthy delays, particularly if there are objections from neighbours.

This is where Elite’s experience in preparing and submitting development approval applications can make this sometimes daunting task easier and more likely to achieve the desired outcome.
