    Good property managers for Southport and West Brisbane

    I would also recommend Russell from purerentals. He was able to find a suitable tenant within one week of the property settling and appears to be an honest guy to deal with. Initially I was concerned that his offices were located a bit far from Underwood where the property was located, but...

    Solicitor in Brisbane - Logan City area

    I have since had another chat with Andrew and he has explained the difference in fees was due to the extension of settlement which I had requested and the fees which I had already agreed to. So accepting where fault is due, it was my fault for not paying attention to the fees and charges...

    Solicitor in Brisbane - Logan City area

    The difference in fees was $100. The least I would have expected was an apology if it were a mistake. I am sure there are many ways to look at it to be fair to Andrew however in my opinion I would not recommend him to anyone based on my experience.

    Solicitor in Brisbane - Logan City area

    I recently used Andrew Wheldon based on recommendations here for a purchase in Underwood, QLD and would not recommend him. Some of the issues I had were: - Not booking in settlement with the bank until I personally followed up a few days before settlement was to occur. - Initial fee quoted...

    CBA Valuation and Equity

    Thanks Rolf, I called the new loans department at CBA and they confirmed LMI would only apply on the new loan amount. Seems like the relationship manager CBA assigned to me is not very familiar with the loans side of things.

    CBA Valuation and Equity

    Hi All, Assuming there was a house which was bought for $10 with a 95% lend from CBA. Say the house value increased to $12 and CBA did a new valuation. I have been advised by someone at CBA they could lend me the difference up to 95% of the new value. So the existing loan is $9.5. and 95%...

    White guilt and racism double-standards

    Who are "they"? Are you referring to the people like those in the Cronulla riots? I am not sure what their parents taught them so can't comment but you seem to know.

    White guilt and racism double-standards

    I agree that the English did do some good work in Australia but they also made mistakes. However as I have said, things changed and improved with time as they will continue to do so in the future for the better of Australia.

    White guilt and racism double-standards

    Well this did not sit well with the first British migrants and set a trend for all migrants after them.

    White guilt and racism double-standards

    It may or may not be foreign values which the Aussie values will evolve to. We may end up creating our own unique way of living. No one is perfect and no country is perfect. As time goes on things should always keep changing for the better. For example, were woman always allowed to vote in...

    White guilt and racism double-standards

    So you agree that Australian social history/ culture has been evolving and will continue to evolve as more migrants enter? Always remember that Australia was first settled by the aborigines. Why did the first migrants not follow their culture and way of life when they first came here...

    White guilt and racism double-standards

    I have not met many people in Australia who actually respect and follow the Christian heritage or values. I looked up Wikipedia to see what it meant: Today, in the 21st century, the phrases "Christian values" and family values are being used by conservative political groups [1] [2] [3] to...
