Reading the Ozzi News I see the cost of rental units in Perth is rising steadily causing problems for those looking to rent. Seemingly renters are offering over the asking price to secure a lease. House rents up by almost five per cent in the December 2012 quarter to $470 - Euro 370pw and apartments up 2.6% to $400 - Euro 315pw.
So I thought that if there were pie members home / abroad they may like to update the thread with any useful information regarding costs of living down under. Also might give us an insight into some stories from down under from their perspective. Renters... “Compared to renting a house at home, you have to give all your records – your visa, your passport, your wage slips and your driving licence. I must have given them six or seven points of identification.”
I know it's Perth which we always knew as millionaire city, but it sure is'nt cheap.
