We have rented ours out but are wondering whether to move Tia new area? My children can't both get into their old school.They have said my daughter in year 3 may have a place but my son In reception would not!! Over here they went to different schools as there were very few schools which had kindy places! I'm z bit worried abt going back! No jobs no schools just hope we will be ok

    Can your heart belong to 2 Countries?????

    Hi myself and my family have only been here 8 weeks and I'm struggling with missing family and the silly little things back in the UK. There is no denying that Perth is beautiful with parks and beaches everywhere but I at the moment don't tthink I will be able to settle here! I am already thinking of goin back next year!! I get emotional thinking about my parents and sisters back in the UK and my friends I keep getting upset too which isn't good I front of my two children! They are hard work and I had help back home so am struggling! Where we live is quite isolated as its a a new estaTe. My partners brother lives here do they are a good help but am swaying towards UK! Will my feelings settle?

    Dilema about renting uk house out

    Hellppp can someone give me some advice?? We have decided to rent our house out as we can't sell it been up for 7 months and only 4 viewings!! Now we are thinking of going through a managemdnt company to look after the house whilst we move (hoping to move to perth in may) is it worth paying them? Do they actually do a lot? We dont plan on tellin mortgage comp as they will put our mortgage up another 100 a month, if we pay management fees we are Goin to be adding to the mortgage!! We are just goin to cover mortgage as it is what with landlords insurance boiler cover etc we are adding to this!! Any advice and tips would be useful!! My head is burstin with it all as is my OH's!! Its putting loads of stress on the already stressful time! Got shippers quoting on thurs!! Wish we could sell it!! Meant to add have dropped house abt 19,000 already!! Thanks x

    Dilema about renting uk house out

    If we tell mortgage comp we will have to put abt 30.00 to cover mortgage payment plus 100.00 of management fee then about 30 boiler etc cover and then landlords insurance, all in all we have to pay 200 to it each month!! Which if we are renting out in oz as well is going to be expensive! Why cant things be simple?? Wish we could just sell it and get rid!! Its all v stressful! Thanks for everyones comments!!

    Childs trust fund in UK - what happens to it if we move??

    I would also like to know the answer to the questions about Child Trust Fund Thanks Stacey
  23. Hi All, we are hoping to emigrate May this year to Perth...and as we are now in 2012 thought i'd better start thinking about quotes for sending things over? Do I provide the shipping companies with a list of what we want to take? We are wanting to take over leather suite ( 3 seater and a 2), tv and stand, dining table and chairs, mountain bikes and 2 kids bikes, lots toys, clothes, kids clothes, kitchen items (cutlery, plates etc) not beds (maybe our 4 yr olds toddler bed) and duvets, towels etc? Do I have to specify every item of clothing? Or do i show the shipping company in the wardrobes and say this etc?? How long does it take normally for things to arrive in Perth? Any help would be gratefully received... thanks Stacey x:rolleyes:

    The Start of "The Big Move".......HELP....!!

    Hi there we are looking at moving over May next year and I am having the same thoughts....we are going to look at getting some different shipping companies round Jan time to get an idea of what costs we are looking at shipping wise. Have you sold your house? We havent yet and really want to sell it before we move...we will look at renting it out if not but would prefer to sell it to ease the stress of renting whilst so far away.. Its scary but exciting, my in laws are in Perth (staying with my fiances brother) at the moment for six weeks and they say its fantastic and very warm at the moment....! Good luck Stacey:biggrin:
