    UK mortgage broker

    Hi Does anyone know a good mortgage broker to help organise a home for when we return to the UK? I read somewhere that we need the offer of employment and a deposit. We don’t need 6 months pay slips like in Australia? Is this correct?

    Moving back but lost

    Hi, ive been in Australia for 10 years now and feel it’s time to go home. Over my time here I’ve had ups and downs of homesickness but this last year has been the worst! So decided to make the decision to move back. I just don’t know where to begin. The whole process seems so much harder than coming out here. I’ve read that due to not having a credit history we would need to pay 6 months up front in rent. Is this accurate? We don’t have a lot of money behind us and just not sure how we are going to manage the whole move back which makes it even more depressing. I have 4 children, one that starts year 11 in September. I’ve read posts saying get them back for GCSE’s but we just don’t have the money right now! We need to save for a year or so to get us there. Which means would I have to stay to put my other child through school first? I’m in such a terrible predicament and not sure where to begin. Any help greatly appreciated
  3. Hey my daughter was born in Australia, will this make it harder to enrol her at school upon our return? thank you Carly

    Year 11 and 12

    Hi I am in the process of organising a move back to the UK. I have to go back to organise work which will therefore put my move back by at least 2 more years due to finances and jobs. I will have a son going into year 11 at this point. Just wondering could he apply for 6th form if we try and aim to get him back for year 12 or would his ATAR not transfer over? I would also have a year 9 student. Any help greatly appreciated
