  1. Where to stay on arrival

    Hi Ozzie, yes I have noticed the f1 form while looking on real estate and to be honest I think that's even easier than paper so that's good to know. Hmm very strange when we lived in Brisbane and we put our pug on the application we was told they would ask the owner they said yes and that was that because it's there property owned by them, body corp is usually the owners of the complex not the property so if you're applying for say a unit or apartment then that's when they come into play and that will be noted in your contract. With just applying for a house we've never had to deal with body corp because they don't have anything to do with the property. The only time we ever dealt with them was in Melbourne when we lived in an apartment.? We lived in Melbourne a year and Brisbane for four.! We never had an issue with putting our dog on applications and was accepted at a few places before deciding which one we wanted. I think it helps he's only small though too I have friends with Labradors and alsatians who have had a bit more difficulty. Never owned a cat so not sure how they feel about that I know there's a rule they must wear a bell or and be in before 10pm because of the birds or something lol. Good to hear it's all worked out for you. We fly out on New Year's Eve so very much looking forward too being back 😊
  2. Where to stay on arrival

    Hi Ozzie, wow nearly a month we have never had that happen before we have lived in Melbourne and Brisbane and it only ever took a week after applying.! We already know where we want to live and I have lots of application forms printed and ready to hand in once we have viewed and like what we see I find having everything ready to hand in on the day speeds up the process and helps heaps in securing a rental. And im pretty sure body corp only come into play when it's an apartment complex owned by them as we have a pug and only ever had to have approval off the landlord. Thanks for all your info ☺️ Hi Robbins, we have booked an air bnb for two weeks to start but we are also prepared to be very busy in them two weeks looking for somewhere to rent. The place where we're staying also gives the option to ask for longer so if worst comes to the worst we just pay for another's week or so until we find somewhere but I think 2-4weeks is reasonable. Hope that helps 😊

    hi Ozzie, good luck with everything we love Brisbane/gold coast however didn't like Melbourne after starting off there and staying there for a year. I suppose it depends on what kind of lifestyle your after 😊

    Hi AlexJD, Thank you.! To be honest we just can't wait to get back. We had our first child over there before moving back to the uk where we ended up having our second child and the lifestyle over there compared to here well there's just no comparison. Brisbane/Gold Coast is wonderful in so many ways and just amazing for children. Good luck with everything for your move 😊

  7. Hey, just wondering if if anyone has any ideas on where's cheapest to stay when first arriving.? We lived in Brisbane for five years before returning to the uk in 2015 we are now ready to return to oz but now have two children. When we first moved we stayed with family in Melbourne but of course we don't want to live there we want to return to Brisbane/Gold Coast and don't have family to help out this time. We have been looking at air bnbs which can be reasonable but just wondering if anyone has any cheaper ideas.? Many Thanks in advance,
