Hi all, I'm a first timer to this forum, so would like to ask everyone to please bear with me if I'm unaware of the proper etiquette here. :biggrin: As my wife and I will be migrating to Melbourne and taking up a job based in Croydon, in the city of Maroondah, we would like to know is this a good place to live in? If not, we will happily consider other suburbs as long as it's within 1 to 2 kilometres away from Hewish Road, Croydon where my company is located in. We know we could be more specific in our likes/dislikes but, suffice to say that we are not overly picky as long as it's a safe (meaning little to no crime) and healthy (not right next to a nuclear reactor or sewage treatment plant etc) place to live in. My wife and I will be dearly grateful and appreciative of even the smallest information regarding this. Cheers, WH
I am British, living in the UK with my Australian husband and my spouse visa application is underway as we plan to move to Melbourne next year. My husband has bought a house there - I couldn't easily get on the NAB mortgage or the title deeds but I will do so once I have the visa and I'm over there. In the mean time we are renting the flat where we live in the UK and on top of that we are paying the Australian mortgage by renting out the Melbourne house and contributing the rest half each. I also made a substantial contribution to the deposit we paid on the Melbourne house. I want to protect my interests in case anything happens to my husband (God forbid) and I've consulted my friend who is an English property lawyer and she has advised that we should get a declaration of trust legally drawn up. At least that's what it's called in the UK. She says that if the property was in Britain we would have to involve the bank and register it at the land registry. Now I need to figure out how to do this. Does anyone know of any law firms in the UK (probably London) with the expertise to do this, or any law firms in Melbourne who would deal with overseas clients? Any leads or suitable contacts gratefully accepted! Cheers Kate

Here is the article below it can be found here: Housing squeeze deepens | Herald Sun MELBOURNE'S housing shortage is worse than realised, according to government projections. Documents obtained by the Sunday Herald Sun under Freedom of Information show new housing approvals - which slumped from 33,373 four years ago to 27,276 in 2006-07 - will reach only 28,720 by 2011. Previous estimates by the Housing Industry Association had the number of new homes in Melbourne recovering to 38,828 a year by 2011. The projection of new home approvals was prepared for the Premier by the Department of Planning and Community Development in February. A government spokesman said the estimates were based on outdated ABS data and were a "projection, not a prediction". But HIA economist Harley Dale said if the projection was correct, Melbourne's housing crisis was far worse than thought. "We are estimating a shortfall 7000 dwellings a year by 2010-11," he said. "These numbers would suggest the situation is even worse than that, especially as the situation has deteriorated since February." The findings came as property analyst RP Data warned the rental crisis was likely to get much worse because despite strong population growth, construction of new housing continued to languish. It predicted the average Melbourne house rental price would rise 14 per cent this year.
