    <p><p>Really, sorry, haven't been on here for ages!. How are you getting on?. Skills assessment involved sending description of all duties and skills learnt over the years, migration agent should be able to help with this. I have NVQs, are you using an agent?</p></p>

  8. <p><p>Hi there, I hope you don't mind me sending you this message. I was wondering how you were getting on with the immigration process. My husband is also a Butcher and we were considering making the move to Oz. He has worked mainly in supermarkets and has been in his current post for 12 years. I see that you had a skills assessment, can I ask what did that involve? Also, do you have any trade qualifications. He didn't but his work put him through a course that gave him certificates but that was just 2 years ago. Again, I hope you don't mind me asking you all these questions. Thanks, Lou</p></p>

  9. Hi Adona, Thanks for the reply. We will be able to save, just thought this might a good helping hand. We were going to pay for the loan while over there and rent our house out. Think we may just save though
  10. Thanks everyone. We know its going to be tough and wont take any risks. We dont have much now and arent moving to Oz for this amazing luxurious lifestyle, far from it. We expect to have no money and struggle, just an idea we were toying with to help fund the move and pay for the dog to be transported (ludicrous amount!!) Were being sensible and renting the house out, may as well keep it for now. Think were going to give ourselves 18 months to save as much as we can. Thanks for all the advice Steph
  11. Hi, Not for one minute did i think it was going to be easy. This wasnt to set us up and give us a "dream" lifestyle. Were under no illusions that it will be tough, this was just to help with moving costs
  12. Hiya, Im thinking of taking out secured loan to fund our move over and im worried about what happens to the secured loan in 2 years. Can i continue paying this from Australia, will the bank call this in?. Im concerned we wont be able to get a decent rate again in 2years or we wont be able to get anything at all, leaving us with a large debt to pay back asap...:arghh: Any help would be appreciated!!! Steph
  13. Hey there, Thanks for the help. Were really worried about bank accounts renting our house out..arrgghh!!!
  14. Hiya, Ive just applied for a basic account from Westpac, so we can start transfering money over and build a credit history and just had info from my migration agent, advising Commomwealth would be a good choice, as offices in the uk and cant sort credit cards, loans etc..... Im really stuck now, any help much appreciated!! Steph
