  1. My husband, 2 yr old son and myself arrive in Mackay on Nov. 20th and we have had 0 luck finding a rental. If ANYONE knows of something please send info my way. I am interested in apartments or units for our 1st rental. Perhaps after we have been there 6 months and accumulated some additional belongings and furniture I would seek a house. I appreciate any help. Shannon

    Rental References

    Hi, I am sure this question has been asked a million times before, so sorry to ask again :embarrassed: I am looking to prepare our reference pack so we can hit the ground running when it comes to rentals in Sydney. Here is a list of what I think might be useful, but further guidance on what works best would be really helpful! Letter of introduction to landlord, telling them what nice, professional, responsible people we are and how we will look after their lovely house. Letter from OH's line manager to say that he has a job (he is on a 457 visa) Copy of job offer which has salary details so they know we are going to be paid to cover the rent If we let our house in the UK a letter from the letting agent to say we have a nice well cared for property back in the UK which is being let out If we sell the house then a letter from our estate agent to say what a lovely well maintained property we have I read somewhere a suggestion to put a mortgage statement to show that you are financially responsible and pay your mortgage every month We have 3 cats so maybe make an offer of an extra $100 on the bond as a pet 'insurance cover' and offer to have any carpets professionally cleaned on moving out the house. Also put a little description of each cat in, that they don't destroy furniture and that we shall provide them with ample scratch posts. They are kept in at night, which I do anyway and one is a house cat, so wont be trouble to neighbours. Those are my initial thoughts, but I would be really grateful for any further advice or anything that you guys found to be of benefit. Thanks!:biggrin:
  3. Hi. We are emigrating to Joondalup on the 14th December and are struggling to find accomodation of some kind for the 4 of us (preferably 3 bedrooms). It's difficult as its holiday time so does anyone know of a place? We have looked at: fully furnished -struggling to find any available in December/Jan non-furnished-hard to get while not able to view caravan sites- none big enough... HELP! Or even, does anyone want any lodgers for a bit while we find an empty place to rent?
  4. I know, this has raised its head in various forms on here before, mostly for PRs. So... we are moving to Oz at the beginning of Dec on a 457 visa. I understand we are classed as "resident for tax purposes" in Oz. Does this mean we have to declare our UK rental income (from our house) in Oz? Also, what about the UK - will we be liable for tax there (though we will be below the personal tax allowance rate of £7475)? Help gratefully appreciated.....
  5. Hi We are a family of 4 moving to Sydney from UK - arriving on Boxing Day. We're looking for short term accomodation - approx 1-2 months, to help us get settled in before finding something longer term. I am lookign at Domain, RealEstate, Rent-a-Home and gumtree. Can anyone suggest anyother options that I can look at please. Many thanks Jon
  6. Hi, We are over in Aus as a PR and finally have our heads around the Aus tax system ........ However I have a question with regards to UK tax.... I own a property in the UK which is rented through an agency, I completed the NRL1 form and made a tiny profit of £1800 for the last financial year... Is this profit liable to UK tax on completing the self-assessment form? wouls really appreciate any feedback? :eek: thanks

    Rental Bond refunds

    Hi everyone, We moved out of our rental property on 15th October and handed in the keys along with bond refund form on the same day. Our letting agents have proven themselves to be as useful as a chocolate teapot in the past but i was wondering if anyone knows if they are obliged to process the bond within a set time? We have left message after message and emails for them to update us on progress and are getting nothing in return. The property is still in tip top condition so there should be no need for an remedial works before release (and you would think they would need to contact you in order to do that!). Anyone had any experience of this or know of timelines etc imposed by the bond authority, cant see anything on the web site. (We are in Victoria if it makes a difference). Thanks!
  8. Hi all, we are heading out in january, DH on 3 mth prob and we have decided that we will all go together and rent a holiday home for 3 months. Can any suggest where to find fully furnished holiday rental in Perth?

    Hi, we are looking for a rental in the Cannock area of the UK from Nov to Jan. All the agents/landlords we have contacted are looking for minimum 6 months, where as we only want 3. We are a family of 4, 2 girls aged 12 and 9 no pets and non smokers, so a 3 bed would be ideal but will consider a 2 bed. Have been down the friends and family route but not an option. Anyone with anything that would help us out? Thanks.

    Short Term Rental Perth

    Hey, Haven't been on PIO since receiving Visa grant mid-May. PC got a virus and is out of action and very hard to write posts on Iphone ;( Flights are booked for 14/09/11, finishing work on 26/08/11, first wedding aniversary 28/08/11 so it's all go. Trying to get our house rented at the mo but our main concern is somewhere to live when we first arrive. We have friends in Doubleview (emigrated last Nov') but don't want to stay more than a couple of days because don't want to be a burden .. Would need something maybe for 2 wks until we have found something more permanent. Would like to settle in the Quinns Rocks, Mindarie or Joondalup areas and so maybe a short term here would be nice to get a feel for the areas. We've enquired in a few places but they all seem very expensive and we really need to try keep costs down until we find jobs (medical secretary and plumber). If anyone has any advice, it would be much appreciated. Cheers, Gill
  18. Can anyone recommend any short term rentals in Perth, I have been on all the usual sites, we are looking for something Pet friendly for about 3 weeks from about 25th June 2012 preferably around Joondalup,Ocean Reef as long as it is near public transport and North of the River, I have sent so many enquiries but with no luck either they want a min 6-8 weeks or no pets, we are sending our dog over before us so that we can pick her up when we get there so it's less stressful for her. What did everyone else do for there first few weeks ? It's so difficult as we don't have jobs lined up and don't know where we finally want to settle. please Help:eek:
  19. Hi, We aim to head out to Aus this September and I'm trying to work out how to co-ordinate the arrival of our shipping, which takes about three months, with moving into a long term unfurnished rental. The holiday rentals are expensive in comparison so I'd want to get out of there as quickly as possible but I'm not sure what else would be available for the relatively short 2-3 months gap that needs filling. What's everyone else doing/done? Cheers!
  20. Hi guys does anybody know of a rental?? must be secret harbour. if you know of a minimum 3 bed with a lock up garage reasonable garden please contact me, if it makes owners feel better i can give a reasonable deposit up front any help gratefully recieved cheers :notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:

    Short term rental..!!

    hi all.. me and the wife are due to be in melbourne (moving from sydney) in 2 weeks and 2 days. We've still got NOWHERE to stay... we cant afford another trip to melbourne before we arrive so going straight into a proper long term rental aint going to happen. So we'll have to do the short term thing. I'm jobless as it stands , but the wife has a job in Mulgrave. We're looking for a short term furnished rental somewhere within a 20min drive to mulgrave. And we're struggling. i'm on gumtree all day pretty much, not sure where else i can look. I've checked http://www.moving-to-melbourne.co.uk/ and though there are short terms, they're all a bit pricey (except for one in Box hill which is $595, however that's still a bit over budget)... Can anyone help, advise, or just shed some light as i'm getting a bit nervous... Thanks
