I have a question about the procedure of booking On Arrival Public Accommodationl via the State of South Australia Government.
My house sale will start going through the motions via our Solicitors on Monday (tomorrow), but we have no idea when it's going to be finalised. We are aiming for about the 23rd November, therefore we would like to make our move to Adelaide, about 7th December. The problem is we have to give at least six weeks notice to hopefully gain our on arrival accommodation, so the date of us to apply at the very latest is 26th October. However on the 26th October we will not be sure if our house sale will be finalised before the 23rd November:
1. If we have given the On Arrival Public Accommodation a date for us to take up our accommodation and then our house sale gets delayed and we cannot make that date. What will happen? Can we change the date, for a later date? If so, what notice period do we have to give? Plus will this hinder our opportunity to gain the On Arrival Public Accommodation again.
2. We cannot afford to pay for our flights until we sell our home, therefore we cannot confirm a date for arrival until we book the flights. But we do not want to apply for the On Arrival Public Accommodation after our flights are booked because we then have to wait 6 weeks before we can set off, taking us till end of January 2010, both my wife and I want to take up our job offers in Adelaide as early as 4th January 2010.
3. Can we apply for the On Arrival Public Accommodation for a given date but mention that this may change due to unforeseen delays with our house sale and not being able to book the flights until we sell our home and the original flights we wanted/planed to book may have been sold and we will need to arrange another flight as close to the original date we gave On Arrival Public Accommodation .
I hope I have explained this right!!!!
