  • shaztaz replied to the topic Solicitor SCREWED UP with prepaid rent money! in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 9 months ago

    Hi soloinvestor,
    Sounds like your solicitor is at fault (negligent?), and may be reluctant to disclose the embarrassing mistake to the sellers solicitor.

    Maybe he hasn’t heard back from the other party because he hasn’t contacted them yet!

    These people take care of complaints against solicitors…..

    Suggest you might like to contact ‘The Office…[Read more]

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Help – What questions SHOULD I ask? in the forum No Subject 17 years, 9 months ago

    Hi Snowkiwi,
    To add just a little to Dereks reply… I would suggest you grab a copy of ‘A pocket guide to investing in Positive Cash Flow Property’ by Margaret Lomas from your local library. On page 68 there is a section titled ‘Asking the Right Questions’. There are 20 – MUST ASK Questions. Its a great read IMHO, and I’m sure it would help you…[Read more]

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Subdividing Bendigo in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 9 months ago

    Hi Winzer,
    I don’t live in Bendigo, but you might like to start with a visit to your local Council with a list of Questions. They can be very helpful and will let you know what is possible in your circumstances.
    Regards,

  • shaztaz replied to the topic First IP structure….Trust or not? in the forum Legal & Accounting 17 years, 9 months ago

    Hi Winzer,
    There is an interesting chapter regarding trusts, in Margaret Lomas latest book titled: The Truth About Positive Cash Flow Property.
    Chapter 6 – To trust or not to trust -structures and strategies. Page 97.
    An excellent read IMHO.
    Regards, Sharon.

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Renovating my 2 bd unit, yay or nay?? in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 4 months ago

    If you are a handyperson, a coat of paint works wonders and really freshens the place up. Best Value for money for a budget spruce up.
    You also might want to consider just replacing the kitchen cupboard doors rather than the whole kitchen.
    My rental carpets were in a disasterous state recently, absolutely filthy. But rather than replacing them my…[Read more]

    Hi Solomon,
    Here’s how to stop your screen from going black after 1 minute….
    Click on ‘Start’.
    Double click on ‘Display’
    Select the ‘Screen Saver’ tab
    Choose a screen saver from the drop down
    Adjust ‘Wait ? minutes’ with the up-down arrows to how ever long you want your screen to remain active, then the screen saver will kick in.

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Recommend Property Manager in Newcastle NSW? in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 6 months ago

    Hi Don & Liz…. Cardiff area.

    Hi Simon …. I’ll try Global. I used to like Leah Jay PM, but we didn’t get treated very well at all when looking for a flat for my son recently. I must add that all other PM’s we came in contact with were the same. Shame on them!

    Hi Jimoan,
    You can find more information about the Jenman system at http://www.jenman.com.au
    Whilst I have nothing against Neil Jenman personally…
    There is a local Jenman R.E. Agent in my area and I will not have anything to do with him.

    I was looking to purchase a house just before the last federal election. The so called ‘ethical’ agent showed me…[Read more]

  • shaztaz replied to the topic CF+ help in the forum No Subject 18 years, 6 months ago

    Hi Robin,
    I bought one 3 yrs ago too with similar figures to yours [biggrin] makes me happy too!

    CF+ are now as scarce as proverbial hens teeth, but some would say not impossible to find with a bit of imagination.

    You may need to put in some low offers on suitable properties. Before you put in an offer think about how you can increase the value…[Read more]

    Hi Bacchu,
    I have sent you an e-mail with a list of ‘Questions for Property Managers’ which I have used in the past. It works well.

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Dispute with Tiler in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 6 months ago

    Hi Omachi,
    It is possible to paint tiles any colour you like with a special type of ’tile paint’. I am not sure if it is durable enough to use on a floor, but easy enough to find out from your local hardware or paint specialist.

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Agents acting in the interests of their vendor in the forum General Property 18 years, 6 months ago

    I must agree with Bill Johnson…

    If you have finally found a house which meets all your criteria and is ideal for your specific needs (perhaps you plan to run a business from home and it is in a perfect location etc etc) then why would you not put in your best offer, knowing full well that someone else may be after the same property?

    Hi Crashy,
    You might want to give these guys a try if one is located near you…www.tendercentre.com
    I have picked up heaps of new & second hand building materials from them.
    They operate like a silent auction. You view the goods, then put in an offer on what you want on the form provided. If you are the highest bidder – bingo! If your offer is…[Read more]

  • shaztaz replied to the topic buyers agents in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 7 months ago

    Hi L & J,
    My guess is that you would be a consultant, however you could clarify things by asking the Real Estate Institute in your State or perhaps the Department of Fair Trading might be able to help.

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Box Gutters in the forum Value Adding 18 years, 7 months ago

    Hi Yack,
    Either a roofing specialist or a home improvement company would be able to help. Both do this type of work and have the relevant tradies on hand.

  • shaztaz replied to the topic Pensioner units in the forum No Subject 18 years, 7 months ago

    Hi Penfold,
    Don’t know much about Pensioner Units, but I think you would need to get to a minimum of 50m2 before the lenders would be interested.

    This friend is not a friend, otherwise he would be paying fair market rent. He has no respect for your friendship. Say Goodbye.

    Hi Milly,
    Sorry to hear about your situation. Your old property manager is certainly a dud, and you’ve done well to give him/her the flick. Lets hope the new one is a vast improvement.
    Just some suggestions/thoughts…
