    Advice please - Finance dramas and options?

    Thanks Cassandra and Strongy. Much appreciated. There is maintenance needed and they are weatherboard fibro. I'll look into the council rates for sure as this will affect net yield, thanks, and also chat to the bank re deposit. Any further things to consider? Thanks again.

    Tax implications for bringing money from UK to Australia.

    You're losing me a little here Terry. Sorry. Transfer funds to a second party and then second party returns / lends it as a gift? Does bankruptcy have to be declared? Better to transfer in one lump sum or in smaller amounts? Many thanks.
