  1. Hi, Following on from the.... what is we dont sell our house thread, I wondered if anyone can give me some feedback that has rented out their house in the UK. I am going to get a rental agent in to see how viable it is to do this incase we dont sell the house, seen as the market seems to have come to a standstill. We thought that if we could get a tenant in to cover the mortgage and release some equity then we would have enough funds to go with, then in 6mths or a year look to try and sell it again? Would prefer to sell in now mind but at this moment we are covering all bases. Cheers Em x

    How long are leases for renting property normally??:chatterbox:
  3. We want to rent out our house for 6-12 months when we go, but are unsure of the tax implications of this to the UK and Australia, do you pay tax in both countries? Has anyone done this? Tried to post this on the money forum, but it won't give me access!
  4. Hi. Can anybody make suggestions on places to live in and around sydney. We are looking to rent - unfurnished. We have a labrador size dog and therefore need some where with outside space(house?) and near to dog friendly parks etc. My husband will be working just near the north sydney train station. We are 31 and 38 and want somewhere near to cafes ,restaurants etc as we are fairly social and an easy commute into the city. Also near to the beach would also be nice Not a lot to ask :laugh: (lol) On a visit looked around Manley,Balgowlah and Fairlight which seemed nice. Mosman was also recommended but did not get chance to visit. Any other suggestions welcome. My OH is there at present so he needs a nice list of places to visit !
  5. Hi all, Anyone out there renting with dogs?? We have heard it is hard to rent as it is without having dogs in tow. I have enquired at a few agents but none have come back. We are going in July to Nambour and starting to get a little worried as to where we are going to live!!!:confused: YVONNE

    Hi all great site and very informative but can someone tell me if it is difficult to rent a house in Ipswich or Logan, etc as i understand it is in Brisbane? Cheers Tony
  7. Does anyone know if you need any references to rent a house ? I don't have any rented references because I have owned my own house for a number of years ? What is it you need to bring with you in order to get one ? Thanks
  8. Are you renting or selling your houses??? Im renting mine but i keep hearing the old horror stories and its starting to worry me! Spent a fair old bit of money on it the last couple of years and dont want it wrecked. I want to rent it until we'r 100% sure oz is for us! Even the 2 plasma's are staying up on the wall,cant take em down as the rooms wouldnt be right without them there. Must be mad. Can see me popping back in a year and they'l have been used as poker tables! Stu

    renting with 1 dog & 2 cats

    Hi everyone, We are hoping to be allocated case worker for our 136 visa application anytime between March & July. Could anyone give me some honest advice about our chances of being able to rent a house ( probably in Brisbane South/ Springfield Lakes ) with a dog & 2 cats in tow. Our dog will definetaly be coming. Our cats are 15 & 11 and I know it is not the most sensible idea to bring them ( cost, upset to them etc) but I have an 8 year old daughter who would be distraught at leaving them behind. I feel she is already unsure about leaving her best friend & her family & having to leave her cats ( who she loves to bits-especially the 15 year old one) would be too much !!! However, the last thing I want is to arrive over there and find we are all homeless as no-one willing to rent a house out to a family with a dog & 2 cats. Thanks, Wee Wen :? :? :?

    Renting a property

    Has anyone got any info about renting a property in Brisbane. I would like to get one sorted before moving, so that we have somewhere to stay for when we arrive. Thanks for any info..... Rache
  12. You may find that a visit or two to some of the Opportunity shops will pay off. There are a number on Chapel Street (St. Vinnie's etc) which have had some lovely pieces in at unbelievable prices! If you have transport, there are two massive warehouses in Hoppers Crossing. I understand renting furniture to be an expensive idea but other people may have had different experiences.. All the best for a good flight and a great life in Melbourne. As an aside, I heard that Uni Lecturers get the highest Super at 17%.... Lucky you!

    Renting furniture

    Hi all getting close now, leave for Melbourne on Wednesday! My question is, does anyone know if it is possible to rent furniture in Melbourne? I'm shipping most of my stuff over, but there will obviously be a gap of a few weeks between me renting a place and it showing up (and form the look of some of the posts here, that might be optimistic). Any ideas on places or prices? Also, I might have to store some of my stuff when it arrives-to start off with I'll probably rent a 1 bedder. Again, any ideas? Thanks! Andy

    Hi there We are off to Sydney this November and will have to look for temp. accomdation to stay in. What's the renting procedure in Sydney? I've been looking on realestate.com.au and various of site....even tried to contact some letting agent about our situation.

Stressful stuff........ P.S any advice on which suburbs are good in Sydney as well?

    Selling and Renting

    Is it common for those who are awaiting visas to put their houses up for sale and rent here to enable them to use equity before actually going over? This is something we are thinking of doing so any advice would be helpful. TIA. Choobs
