A detached house is occupied by just one family or household and all maintenance and repair costs (interior and exterior) are at the owner’s expense.

Semi-detached housing- Semi-dethatched housing is built of two housing structures which are constructed side by side as dwellings, they share a common wall. The layout of each dwelling when constructed is such that each house layout is a mirror image of its own.

A Terraced house- A terrace house is a house attached either side of it( terraced house is normally constructed with three or more houses which are joined together in a row). Terrace houses refer almost exclusively to Victorian and Edwardian era terrace houses or replicas and they are found in the older inner city areas of the major cities. Modern suburban versions of this style of dwellings are referred to as "town houses".

Town houses- Town houses are a medium density houses in cities generally but not every time terraced. A modern town house is generally the one with a small footprint on multiple floors. Town houses are mostly found in large complexes and generally have:
