    The nightmare rental market in Adelaide

    I would agree with justaguy and try to bypass the agents by dealing direct with owners. Not that it helps in your situation but yes, Adelaide rental agents are average at best and in some cases outright cowboys. We have twice had to take agents to SACAT (rental tribunal) and won both times. I also found that the law here is weighted very much towards landlords, and I say this as a former landlord myself in the UK. The idea of a 'rolling lease' for example has been laughed out of town every time I suggested it, even though I offered this for my tenants in the UK - flexibility for both parties. Also look out for the old 'break of lease' scenario, we bought property mid way through our rental lease and the landlord/agent came after us for 'loss of rent' even though we gave 6 weeks notice before moving out, they refused to even start advertising until we had handed the keys back. During Covid! As a result the rental was empty for nearly 3 months, agent comes after us for loss of all that rent and we take them to SACAT. Again! Best of luck to the OP. ps if anyone is having issues with ADL rental agents and want advice on the SACAT process feel free to PM, I strongly believe the agents in a lot of cases take advantage of good tenants who do not have the means or knowledge to fight them.

    Nishara, You only have two options now : Please see if you can request an exemption again if not done and try for a ticket to come back before your 489 expires and you can use your bridging visa. If that is not an option, you'll have to wait for your 887 grant.

    Hello

    Hi so introduction terms I’m a registered nurse have 14 years experience. Yes have five children single parent ( 2 older ones are in the military here) so have a 14 8 and 5 year old. We are all Australian citizens. Not sure between Adelaide and Brisbane areas. We have previously lived in Perth for 4 years but then my marriage broke down and I returned to the U.K. been back 9 years. We went for a extended holiday 2 years ago just was the wrong time as all five kids at home and two eldest decided not for them at that time. 14 and 8 year old just want to return and I love both countries. My work life balance In the U.K. in horrendous ( partly my fault as I have just done a degree and now started a Masters) I have to work permanently on nights to make it work financially. I feel old (40years) the weather gets me down here but im a little apprehensive about going again. The kids do swimming languages and dance and horse riding in the summer so concerns are finding a nice affordable suburb finding a job making it all work as a single parent access to activities for the kids being able to survive and make a friendship group sorry for the long intro

    People stuck overseas and waiting for a grant need not worry, your visa will be granted even if you are offshore now due to covid. I have seen information related to it on my visa grant notice quoting instructions on how to travel to Aus now

    From 489 to 887 Visa

    1) If I am the main applicant for 887 Visa, can I apply as soon as 26 August 2021? Or will I need to wait until 25 Dec 2021 as my wife and daughter came over that time? You can apply on or after 26 August 2021 2) What are the language requirements (if any?). According to my knowledge no need.
  28. Hi, I'm will be applying for 887 in a few months time. Was informed by my agent 1 year ago that in my case (from 489 to 887), there is no requirement to retake IELTS. I took my IELTS on March 2018, overall band 8.0. If I am planning to submit my 887 application on August 2021, will I still need to retake and resubmit the IELTS?
  29. Hi all, I've been reading through the Home Affairs website and still unable to get clarity on my scenario. We are a family of 3 (myself+wife+6 year old). Currently on a 489 visa with plans to apply for 887 in the near future. My Visa 489 was granted on 13 April 2019 (valid til 13 April 2023) Visa condition is "8539 - Live, study and work in a specified area" I came over to Adelaide on 26 August 2019, and have not left since. My wife and daughter came over on 25 Dec 2019 (and also have not left since). My full time job started on 18 May2020 (still currently in the same job). My IELTS was on March 2018 (Overall 8.0) and my wife took hers on March 2019 (Overall 8.0) Questions in regards to application for 887 Visa: 1) If I am the main applicant for 887 Visa, can I apply as soon as 26 August 2021? Or will I need to wait until 25 Dec 2021 as my wife and daughter came over that time? 2) What are the language requirements (if any?). I have been reading that some will be required to submit a "valid" IELST while some says its not required for the 887. Thanks a million in advanced for your advice!
