  1. That website is very useful, thank you! I had not come across that. Quite an involved process so need to work out some sums but could work out to be good concept . Thank you for taking the time to give me some good info and website connections as it’s a few months since I first posted the question and the world is facing some challenges presently but worth thinking about in the next year or so.
  2. The stamp duty is a killer! I knew it was a sizeable sum - on the plus side there are some reasonable small new builds in the area I am looking at at around $350 so the fees would be smaller . Just out of curiosity which website did you find the figures? Many thanks
  3. Thank you - I had since gone onto the website which had the same information- but I guess the “fees” may be quite high but certainly worth thinking about. Thank you for the information - always helpful for for viewpoints which may not have occurred to me. Need to get through this world wide problem first!!
  4. I am looking at Adelaide where my daughter lives. When I say a limited time I mean I would stay in Australia for 3-6 months (dependent on visa) than return to UK - property could be rented in interim- I would not be looking at selling property within a short period of time - it would be two fold, an investment and also a place where I and other family members could stay without my daughter having to juggle bedrooms etc when visitors descend
  5. Thank you all! Useful information to mull over that it is possible to be able to do that and also for insurance purposes as in the U.K. insured properties should not be left empty for prolonged periods arrangements can be made to have somebody there off and on to satisfy the insurance terms. I do agree that it would be inadvisable to "lend" money to purchase a property (and it would be a new build also - not interested in an established house) as you are quite right you never know what may happen down the line - I would want to be in control Thank you for your replies!
  6. Is it feasible to buy a house (no mortgage required) in Australia as a British citizen to use for 3-6 months per year whilst visiting family who would also use the house for friends and other relatives to use at other times.
