  2. Plumber/gas fitter wages

    Please think carefully about what you are doing.These posts are from 2013 when Perth was a boom town - now WA has gone bust - unemployment is very high - good luck with your decision
  3. Best wishes to the Pom queen

    Oh No - so sad to hear this I hope you get better real soon PQ xx
  4. Cost of living in Melbourne

    Perth is way more expensive than Melbourne!
  5. Flight deals

    I used Best Flights also years ago - since then have just booked with airlines directly. Thanks for info
  6. Painter going to oz for work

    Can't help with visa question but Melbourne is not crazy expensive - Perth is. Australia has become very expensive but knowing and having lived in Melbourne (recently) and Perth (still do) Perth is so expensive. Perth also has the highest unemployment rate in the country.
  7. I think you will find Applecross pretty bland. I live in Fremantle and there is plenty of vibe - I think you would love it - I would stay in Freo if I were you - lots of local pubs with quizzes most nights of the week. You would meet lots of people. Real holiday atmosphere also.
  8. Getting a UK mortgage after 7 years in Aus

    Thanks for more info Ken
  9. Getting a UK mortgage after 7 years in Aus

    Thanks for the information Ken. I was actually in the UK at the time - very frustrating!
  10. Getting a UK mortgage after 7 years in Aus

    I tried get one a few months ago and no luck. Tried lots of brokers. The problems were because I was living in Australia - apparently Australian financial regulations have now made it very difficult for UK lenders and because I was trying to buy in Scotland - thought it was still part of the UK?? I was going to put down about 60% of purchase price and had other property in UK as security also - didn't make a jot of difference.
  11. Ticket is bought!

    Best wishes for the future Mhags - it does sound like you need to go and be Scottish for a while - Hope you have a great flight and enjoy the catch up with all your friends and family. xx
  12. Into The Unknown in Melbourne

    Have a look at Mordialloc - pretty little place with village type feel and on the beach. 40 minutes to the city by train and 25 minutes by car. Lots of nice cafes and bars also. I also like St.Kilda. Mordialloc is more laid back though.
  13. Airbnb Perth

    Local Government are now looking into regulating Airbnb - think they will have to have planning approval in the not to distant future. It has apparently been a nightmare for some people who live in apartments

  15. Storage costs in Perth?

    $11 a week is good. I am paying $100 a month in Melbourne. This is for an indoor storage unit
