    I think you'll find Paul1Perth is from the UK and has probably had several European holidays like most of us here. It's possible to like both Australia and Europe you know, it's not a competition.

    Well you're hardly going to find beautiful green English countryside in Australia are you? Did you do any research on Perth before you moved here??

    Unoccupied costs on a property in WA

    Council rates vary between councils/shires and also between properties. The annual amount is often included in the listing but if not, the real estate agent can tell you the amount. The shire we live in have particularly high rates and as we're on a large block our rates are nearly $3000 a year

    Yes, you will still have to pay council rates and water rates (if it's connected to mains water). Even an empty block of land incurs council and water rates.

    We will be there in 2 weeks so would like it like this for a bit longer please . Although, I see the forecast for Huonville is 38C today which is a bit too hot.

    Are we talking Northbridge, Perth here? Which is a short walk from the CBD with lots of bars and restaurants and a few nightclubs. The place where many people head for a night out. It's not somewhere I'd describe as a quiet, leafy suburb and I used to go there a lot
