  • akirk replied to the topic Legality and buyer problems with a sale , how can I handle this ? in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 11 months ago

    Wannado,If you exchanged on the contract, and the buyer signed as well, then any penalties outlined in the contract will fall due by them (and that's regardless of whether or nor you're holding the deposit).I suggest that you get on the phone to your solicitor (or better still, send through in writing) and request an update on the sale and…[Read more]

  • Hi tingtong,I helped finance friends to purchase that town house so it's not mine!  I can tell you though that the quality is poor and the workmanship is questionable (I'm only speaking of the one that I'm involved in).  The owners have had to battle tooth and nail for about 6 months to have them address an obvious and serious water logging iss…[Read more]

    http://stagedhomes.com.au/I've not personally used their services, but I have only heard good things!

  • akirk replied to the topic Subdivisions – Utilities in the forum General Property 13 years, 11 months ago

    Give your solicitor that handled the purchase a quick call!!  They will have the contract on file, and would at least be able to get you started down the right path.

  • akirk replied to the topic rental property investment – basic questions in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 11 months ago

    MissMolly – I'm with sonyasal on this one!  International students are a great idea.  I had a friend who rented out 3 rooms of his 4 room house as 'home stay'.  He just needed to provide breakfast and dinner each day…..and I did the english tutoring so it was loads of fun!That is of course assuming that you're in an area with high demand for st…[Read more]

  • akirk replied to the topic Bathroom dilemna in the forum Value Adding 13 years, 11 months ago

    If it's a unit/apartment – check that isn't an issue for Owners Corporation!  A quick call to the Strata Manager should answer that.If it is your responsibility, with your costing for a renovation- make sure that you've included money in there to cover the plumbing fix – sounds like it's necessary whether you renovate the whole bathroom or no…

  • akirk replied to the topic unconditional cash offer requires finance? in the forum Legal & Accounting 13 years, 11 months ago

    It will essentially come down to the contract that they have signed.  Take a look at the clauses that deal with delays or exits.  Assuming that they signed it (and it was all legit), then surely you would have legal rights.  Are you using a solicitor for the sale?In all honesty, forget the opinions – go straight to your solicitor!

  • akirk replied to the topic SERIOUS HELP NEEDED PLEEEASE in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 11 months ago

    Is there rental demand in the area of your IP?  If you were to move in with parents, and rent out the property, you may be able to manage.  Seeings that you were given the FHOG, you will need to meet the requirements – there is a minimum amount of time that you must live there!I would suggest, that you:1. Confirm your FHOG position2. Get a r…[Read more]

  • akirk replied to the topic Can I get rid of my property manager after only one week? in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 11 months ago

    I would go into their office straight away and speak to them.  I must admit that I put a clause in my last contract saying that within the first 3 months I could break the contract with 3 days notice.  There have been a couple of small issues – but nothing major – I've resolved them all with them directly and quickly.

  • akirk replied to the topic IP-6 weeks and still no tenant in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 11 months ago

    I took a look at the link – there is no mention of the inspection days and times – make sure that you get the agent to publish those asap…..it's likely that alot of people search online at night – so the properties that they need to phone about will be left at the bottom of the pile.There have been some great suggestions – the best of which is…[Read more]

  • akirk replied to the topic Final inspection demands WA in the forum Legal & Accounting 13 years, 11 months ago

    $1000 seems to be the standard amount that is held back – and you get back what they don't spend.  I can't tell you what is supposed to happen – but when I purchased a property (in Vic), at the final inspection (the day before settlement), I found out that there were holes in the walls, and stains on the carpets that were very well concealed.   My…[Read more]

  • akirk replied to the topic Window Furnishings for new property to rent out in the forum Value Adding 13 years, 11 months ago

    Children and pets can make pretty short work of venetians!  Anything aluminium can bend and scratch easily as well.  I have a beautiful house that I rent out – and as much as I would love to have fabulous blinds – I settled with curtains which are much more forgiving!

  • akirk replied to the topic Master class DVD in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 11 months ago

    They suggest that you use a particular software from memory.  Give the office a call, or send through an email and they will help you out.

  • akirk replied to the topic One bedroom Reno Help Required in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 12 months ago

    I would love to see pics of it when it's done!!Is it strata titled?If so, then you will likely need approval for any internal changes (just a letter to the Strata Managers with your date range may suffice).  Also, if it's strata, then you won't be able to do anything with the external appearance (that will be 'common property'.  But, some of t…[Read more]

    Keep an eye out on ebay – There was one listed a month or so ago for $115 (video rather than dvd though).

  • akirk replied to the topic 2 Day Tax Lien Workshop in the forum Overseas Deals 14 years ago

    Hi,Yesterday I opened a HSBC US Checking Account.  All I needed was to take in my drivers licence, my passport, a recent bank statement, the filled in forms and $200 into my local branch.This will give me the US Checking account, a Debit Mastercard (which they will send from the US) and access to online banking.   To deposit any US cheques and…[Read more]

  • akirk replied to the topic Self Managing House Sale in the forum Help Needed! 14 years ago

    Hi Elle,Your advertisment is very well written….good luck.  You could likely do the floorplan yourself – just grab some software (even Visio would do it), and a tape measure.

  • akirk replied to the topic 2 Day Tax Lien Workshop in the forum Overseas Deals 14 years ago

    Citibank isn't going to the solution for me – so I'm checking out HSBC.Citibank only offers a 'Multi Currency' account which means that it's an Autralian Account, held in US dollars.  This presents the same limitations as using an everday Australian account (US cheques are deposited at a hefty fee, and take 21 days to clear).If anyone has found a…[Read more]
