    Brits living in Oz, returning to UK for Uni

    A few years ago - my friend went back to Scotland after 20 years overseas and they classed her as a resident for university due to the fact she had kept a house there - hope this helps

    Melbourne suburbs

    I really liked Mordialloc (south east Melbourne) - great village feel and lots of cafes etc. there - very close to beach also. About a 40 min drive to CBD https://www.homely.com.au/mordialloc-kingston-melbourne-greater-victoria

    Flights to UK

    Saw a deal this week with Malaysian Airlines to London $871 return in June! Have flown Thai numerous times but not for a few years - they were great. Used to fly them so I could do a stopover in Thailand. Trip around Australia? Sounds good Pom Queen x

    Usually UK and Asia. UK because you want to go see family and Asia cos it can be a quick side trip. Usually Asia any other time because it is so close

    Moving to perth

    East Fremantle is a fabulous spot
  13. If you are trying to get a mortgage in Scotland whilst living in Australia - I tried this last year and found it impossible due to banking regulations between both countries. I tried everywhere - including brokers with no luck - even with having other investment properties and a 60% deposit. If the property had been in England it would have been ok. It was so frustrating
  14. You coming back to Perth so soon Dave?

    Cost of living in Melbourne

    Even $95000 to support a family of 4 would be doing in tough - gone are the days where Australia was a cheap place to live - I would not do it in your situation - you will be under so much money stress and do not underestimate the stress of leaving friends and family - that is huge. Would I do it again now? No
