mj&db posted a topic in Visa ChatWe are just about to submit my 457 visa and have a few bits of application we can't fill in! Firstly - proving our relationship! My OH and I have been together three years in January but we have been renting a house off family for the last two years so don't have a tenancy agreement. I have been advised to get a letter confirming that we have been living together as a couple since 31st Jan 09, explaining that no official tenancy agreement was set up as we are renting privately through family? We do have plenty of bills with both our names on them, a joint bank account and also documents for the two holidays we have been on together in the past three years.....will this be ok? Secondly - previous visas Both my OH and I have previously travelled around Australia (before we met) on Working Holiday Visas. I still have the same passport so have my visa details but my OH lost his so we no longer have his. I called the Australian Embassy today and they said to just write on application that he no longer has original passport with visa and to check electronic records? I am not confident that the visas were electronic then....he went out a year before me and I have a paper version in my passport? Anyone experienced anything like this? Is a Holiday Working Visa something they are that bothered about? It's becoming all so real now! Super excited!!
Guest posted a topic in Renting & Real EstateI was under the impression that you can submit several tenancy applications at the same time, as there are so many people applying you stand more of a chance. However each form says the following in the small print "Initial bond deposit and 1 month rent must be paid in cash or bank cheque within 24 hours after approval of application" So if I apply for 3 properties and all 3 get approved then would I be liable to pay for all 3 of them or be able to to choose which of them I would like to proceed with? Thanks in advance for any help.
We have decided to let our house out and I have an appointment tomorrow with a solicitor to draw up a tenancy agreement. I haven't a clue what's involved, so any tips on what I should ask to have in it? I know he'll know himself, but is there anything I should be including to make things a bit easier while we're away? Cheers, Sheena
Guest posted a topic in Aussie ChatHi there, can anyone help with any of these queries? Does anyone know if a tenancy agreement has to be drawn up by, or involve a solicitor? Can I just do it myself, using a friend's agreement, which was drafted by a solicitor, and adapt it to suit? If we both sign it, is it legally binding, and if so, who, if anyone, would have to witness the signing? Trying to look after the pennies, you know??:mad: Thanks, Sheena
