  1. None of your business I hear you cry! But seriously if you dont mind I am trying to work out how our affordability will work when we go to Aus. At the moment my husband works and I look after the 3 kids, when we go to Aus we will have a considerable drop in income as my husband will have to get his new Aus plumbing licenses and work for someone else for a while we think. I was just wondering what your monthly bills are on average, such as utility bills, council type taxes, insurances - health, life insurance etc, food, schools and so on so we can get an idea of how much we need to earn as a minimum. Hopefully you wont mind answering! Thanks in advance. x

    Please help - hidden costs ??? & Outgoings

    Hi guys, My hubby has received his offer letter this weekend woo hoo (we are a family of 4 and heading for Western Sydney)...... I have already done alot of research into costs and stuff, but am just wondering if anyone out there has an answer for me to any hidden costs that I have missed. But most importantly does anyone know what costs we would be looking at for the connect of utilities for: Water Electricity Gas Phone Internet Costs I have found so far are per month (are these OK?) I know car, rent, etc getting as part of package so doesn't really come into things at this stage. Phone & Internet 200.00 Mobile 50.00 Housekeeping 1,000.00 Electricity 200.00 Fuel - Oil or Gas 115.00 Home ins 30.00 Water 60.00 School Stuff 170.00 I am hoping i have over budgeted for Life Cover 200.00 I am hoping i have over budgeted for Other Transporatation 100.00 We have to get back to them to accept (hopefully) very soon as start day is only a few months away....

    outgoings on bills

    Hi all, we re moving out to Brisbane in March. Can anyone give me a rough idea on outgoings. We re looking at rentals between $350-450 dollors a week. Just want a rough idea what other insurances bills ect we will have to pay on top of this so that I know we are within budget. I ve had health insurance quotes for about $150-200 a month. Just wondering if Leccy, phone, internet is expensive. I there anything equivelant to our council tax charges? do you have to get home and contents insurance? Cheers Any info much appreciated:jiggy: Louise and family
