  1. Do many foreign buyers take out mortgage? I thought it was more to do with hiding money away in bolt holes?
  2. Taxi from the airport

    Thanks. Worse case we can always take two standard taxis.
  3. Taxi from the airport

    Does anyone know if you can fit three suitcases plus cabin luggage and five passengers in a maxi taxi from the rank? I could order a shuttle, but they are more expensive.
  4. Or will the heat melt the chocolate? Saw one in mindarie, but are there any others, preferably in the swan valley?
  5. Bricklayer arriving soon

    Maybe you could try the pomsinoz site. Brisbane has been bouyed by the commonwealth games. Melbourne, Sydney are better as they are not resources bound.
  6. Perth lawyers

    I know of a James Somers who is a lawyer in Perth. Haven't seen him in years, and hard to Google because of the bionic woman. Maybe you could try yellow pages. I expect he'll charge, he is a lawyer after all. Also went to uni with nick, http://www.corrs.com.au/people/nicholas-ellery/ , again expect he may charge.
  7. It is going to be crazy hectic

    Don't give the house away. Off-peak you can get cheap flights back to oz to deal with legalities.
  8. Bricklayer arriving soon

    There does seem to be a reduction in new builds at the moment in Perth. How attached to Perth are you? You may have more luck in the Eastern states.
  9. Hows Perth doin ?

    Ah yes. An unnecessary distraction, and possibly even the straw that broke the camel's back.
  10. Hows Perth doin ?

    What's happening to Europe in the summer?
  11. Hows Perth doin ?

    I really think it depends on your circumstances. If you are prepared for the worst case and happy to treat it as a long holiday if you can't get work then it can be great. But if you have a family and you're betting the farm on it working out, you might want to wait awhile. Also depends on how secure you are in the UK. I would not give up security for a dream right now. But in two years time, who knows. Plus visas take time, and they are valid for a while.
  12. Hows Perth doin ?

    Isn't there an inverse relationship between the amount of work for social workers and the state of the economy?
  13. Should we buy and bring a tumble dryer?

    Many people don't use them, and they do sell them if you need one. Places often have a clothes line at the side of the house under cover. I'd wait and see what you need. You may even rent/buy a house with one fitted. If you already owned it I would bring it. But I wouldn't buy one especially. When it rains it rains hard, but you can get nice sunny winter days.
  14. WA's worst suburbs from crime stats

    Just read this, shocking http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/perth-boy-11-accused-of-esplanade-train-station-murder-inconsolable/news-story/82539bce27c808a333b69d924d6193c5

    Dianella was the real surprise.
