Hi, Trying to do some maths on how much to budget for if, when we move to Australia, we find ourselves out of work for 3 months. Including all the initial things one would need to buy upon arrival....
We do not want to touch the money that we have set aside for a deposit on a house (when we are in a position to get a mortgage)
If i have forgotten anything, could anyone replying, let me know if they are referring to an initial (one off) cost or an ongoing (monthly/annual cost)
Hopefully this will serve as an 'all in one' source of information to anyone else costing the move and settling in period.
Initial costs: (Port Noarlunga)
Car: I have a budget of $4500 so thinking something cheap like a AU series Ford Falcon (6 cylinder) $4500
Associated costs with registering a car on the road? $ ??
Securing a 3 bedroom property for 6 months (deposit, 1st months rent, references etc) $ ??
Utilities (initial setting up fee's) $ ??
Furnishing (on the cheap) -We have decided to not bring anything other than our suitcases $ 3500
Car insurance (39yo male/33yo female) $ ??
Fuel (1000km per month) $ ??
Average monthly shop (2 adults and 2 children) $ ??
Gas $ ??
water $ ??
rent $ ??
telephone $ ??
internet $ ??
tv licence $ ??
medical insurances - if applicable $ ??
I appreciate that any response is only going to be a rough guide.
