  2. Everyone says that. It's money I can afford to lose. They tend to say that after they have lost it. It's money. You can't afford to lose it. It's money, you will miss it. It's not a life changing sum, the smaller or the larger. It's enough to make next year a bit nicer or a lot nicer.

    I think it’s becoming quite clear that most places offer what we are looking for, or at least it is not isolated to a specific area. I am going to speak to a migration company this week and try and make a plan going forward. just good to know that there are plenty possibilities for us thank you

No real reason, just a couple of recommendations. yes defintely need to think more about the job sitch, as having my children in a good school and area would be paramount!

    Should Donald Trump win Nobel Peace Prize ?

    No, of course it's not, IF you're looking at governments. But if the Ukrainian governmetn was corrupt, the solution is not "let Russia come in and rule over them", is it? Imagine if the British government was making a mess of things, so America said, "OK, we'll just come in and take over the whole country, since you're not doing a good job". Would that be fair? The solution is for Ukraine's people to overturn the corrupt government and rule themselves, and there were some signs they were doing that before Russia invaded.

    That’s to have my skills assessed isn’t it?

    Oh there is so many places. Although this is good because I guess it really means that location won’t really matter for what we are looking for, as most places seem to offer it.

    Yes I understand what you are saying. It ls only because a friend went on a 482, so had a job, but whilst sorting it all applied for a 190, went to Aus on the 482 and was granted the 190 after a month being there because the ball was already rolling. what I hadn’t thought about was the location with 482 and that I probably can’t choose. Specific schools come up for the 482 but I guess I can’t choose them and govt will put me where there is a place once we arrive.

    The ACT region has the highest horse ownership per head of population in the country. We’ve just moved from Manna Park near Bungendore to Bundara Park on Captains Flat Road, Carwoola.

    Agistment centres aren’t cheap unless you’re going to buy property. Share properties are popular in the ACT region and most horses are not stabled.

    Moving to Perth! - Schools

    Start looking when you've got your rental. People usually get homes where there are properties available, that you can afford, close enough for the work commute, close to services you may require and in a neighbourhood that doesn't fill you with horror. The schools reflect the suburb so if you couldn't bear to live in the suburb you wouldn't want your kid in the school. All kids living within the school's priority enrolment area are guaranteed a place regardless of when they arrive. If you fancy a school and you're out of their area they may agree to take you if they have vacancies but they're not obliged to. Government schooling is going to cost you $4k pa (I mentioned in one of your other posts) on a temporary visa. If you don't like the gov system and you're Catholic, there's usually a parallel Catholic system. Schools are going to be the least of your problems. Your 4 year old can apply for a part time kindergarten place but I'm not sure that a place in either a school or community kindergarten is guaranteed. They will start full time school at the beginning of the year they are 5 or will turn 5 by 30 June.

    Just as a supplementary, you are aware that you'll have to pay$4k for your kids' education? They waived it for 2023 but I see no waiver for 2024

    Bank account in Aus with 189 Grant

    An interim solution is an account with Wise. You can get a physical debit card (sent to your UK address) that you'll be able to use from day one (without any of the FX hassle of using a foreign card). You can even have an Australian BSB and account number if you need to give anyone Australian bank details before you arrive.

    Interesting. There isn't 'another contract' in NSW either. The seller has to appoint their conveyancer/solicitor to draw up the contract beforehand and that's the one the agent issues to people who want to view it before making an offer.

    Actually in both WA and SA the real estate agent organises the offer to purchase and sends to the vender and purchaser to complete. These are then forwarded to the settlement agents/conveyancer who arranges the land transfer etc, they don't draw up another contract.

    The real estate agent doesn't draw up the contracts, they just print copies to hand over. The contracts are drawn up by the seller's conveyancer or solicitor. If there's no real estate agent involved, the seller's conveyancer/solicitor also holds the deposit.

    EOI for Civil Draftsperson

    It is more than a moral obligation. If the minister forms the belief that an applicant had no intention of working in the nominating state or territory action (visa cancellation) can and has been taken.

    I'd be interested to know how that works in practice because the estate agents over here do a lot more than the ones in the UK, who simply advertise your house and arrange viewings. I recall that the one's here handle the contracts, and also hold the buyer's deposit until settlement. If you're completely dispensing with their services then how are you going to manage those aspects of the transaction? And as a further matter of interest, does anyone know anyone who's actually done that?
