    Hi

     

    Hope your journey is a safe one.

     

    With renting here, you will need your passports to show ID and if you have references from a previous rental, give those as well. Your deposit will be sent through to a central point so no unscrupulous landlord can withold it. However we went with an agent.

     

    We paid 4 months upfront to offset the fact we had no Aussie credit history or jobs. That was fine, we also had to provide a bank statement to prove we could afford it and we asked the bank to provide a less detailed one to submit for this purpose.

     

    Good luck with everything

    thanks for that will sort copies of bank statements. We are all really excited (and nervous) about coming. All my 7 year old wants is a house with a pool!!

    Hi Paul & Janine,

     

    When we went over for our reccie in April, we went to a few estate agents/letting agents and were advised exactly what libby has said.

     

    But, just wanted to say hi, and good luck with your journey and new life.

    thanks for the replies. We have now found a house in flagstaff hill (with pool so happy children:D) and they have settled into school. We are really enjoying ourselves and its still a bit like being on holiday- guess that will change once i get to work!
