Wouldn’t an appropriately selected buyers advocate be able to assist you with finding such a property?
Thanks everyoe for your comments, very useful.
Just another quick qestion, if I was going with a single bank, would I do a single application for the total loan amount and then split the accounts, or would it need to be 3 separate applications (i.e. one per property)?
Been a little while since my last post but I was hoping to get some of the very qualified broken feedback on a question I have about cross-security.
I am looking at refinancing my 3 properties (2 investment, 1 PPOR) and wanted to ensure I did not get locked into having these cross securitised. My situation at the moment is all 3…[Read more]
Catalyst, you say when you replace something, it is seen as an improvement. I am not totally sure on this (happy to proved incorrect) because what if you replace a hot water service because the old one died? That is replacing something but I would expect the whole cost to be claimed in that year?
I was hoping any forum members could provide any thoughts on WCS Group. They are a group that other adivce / finanical planning etc. specifically focused on how to cut years off your mortgage.
I have heard them advertised on the radio and have looked at their website, but I’m not sure whether they will be able to tell me anything I don’t…[Read more]
From what I understand, the ‘capital gain’ event will occur when you accept the offer (and sign the contract), and the actual settlement date (when you receive the money) doesn’t impact the capital gains tax calculation.
If you are comfortable with managing the build (or happy to pay someone to do it) then it may be worthwhile, as you…[Read more]
Hi all, it has been a little while since my last post.
I was hoping to get everyones thoughts on a potential opportunity that has recently arisen. My future father-in-law owns a number of properties and has recently retired so is looking to sell a couple off and one of these would be a good opportunity for me and my fiance.
I am comfortable with…[Read more]

Generally speaking I'm not a huge fan of borrowing money in order to borrow more. Especially for those purchasing for the first time. I think it's important to be able to demonstrate an ability to save – otherwise they could find it tough when it comes to meeting their repayments.
Jamie I agree with you…[Read more]
Hi again guys, thanks for the comments.
Tom, you are right the bank does know about it as their authority was given before the sub-division was finalised.
Richard – the land is unencumbered, are you able to quickly jot down what some of these options would be?
Thanks in advance
I recall reading a similar post on Mildura on this forum so perhaps if you perform a search you may find some additional information.From memory, the general consensus on Mildura was mixed with some having good experiences, some not so good (which would be the same as any area). The fact it is a considerable distance from other regional hubs /…[Read more]

Hi Ashley,I am currently at the final stages of this process (waiting for Council to approve the proposed section 173) and have to say that this process flow would have saved me a LOT of worry! Knowing the upcoming steps in the process would really help with planning.Great resource and thanks for sharing!
This is a bit of a change of topic but I was also under the impression that GST is only payable if you have entered into the development with 'an aim to make a profit'?If you were able to show that your original purchase was not with the intent to develop (i.e. you lived in a dwelling for some time, then decided to sub-divide), would GST no longer…[Read more]
No one has the rates crystal ball unfortunately. It may be worth considering fix part of your loan/s. That way if rates go down, you feel some of the benefit but if they go up it wont hurt too much because part of the loan is fixed.

My point here is if I had of let economic factors stop me from buying, I may never have got started and never experienced a good performing asset.
