    Driveway Wash Out

    After so long, I thought I would update this forum on the outcome of my dilema. We decided to bitumise the area and in fact, used the brick edging with plants down the side with a narrower driveway. Turned out very neat and we are extremely happy with the end product. As I mentioned before...

    Body Corporate Inaction

    Hello all you property gurus. Hopefully, there is a brighter investor than me out there that help me in my situation. I currently have a unit in Yarraville (VIC) that is part of a complex that has been subjected to inaction by Body Corporate management due to insufficient funds as a result...

    Howdy everyone. It has been quite some time since I last posted here and now I figured it was time to get back into it. I have been searching throughout Canberra for a supplier of Astrolawn (aka Astroturf) but I can only find low quality products that just look fake. I did contact...

    Driveway Wash Out

    I have considered this method but it would require quite a few traps to stem the water flow and even then time would be required dig out the gravel washed into the water trap. I am still waiting for a couple of companies to get back to me about asphalt/bitumen driveways. This method does...

    Driveway Wash Out

    We did lay the gravel onto the driveway and used a roller to compact it about 10 years ago. It has stood the test of time pretty well but the washout is occuring on the left wheel rut for about 15m or so. We have used cement powder and the like to try and slow the process down but it seems to...

    Driveway Wash Out

    Thanks Mr Ed. Would take an enormous amount of effort to do all that but I guess we will have to keep that option in mind. It is a battleaxe block which accounts for the length. Need to clean up the whole length anyhow, so a mini backyard blitz on the driveway will be a good excuse. We are...

    Driveway Wash Out

    Hi everyone, Can I get some ideas on what I can do to stop my driveway from washing away when it rains? It is a gravel (Paddys River) mix that is 60m long and 6m wide. I have compacted it and it has survived the last 10 years fairly well. Only problem that I have is that the left wheel...

    SPAM/Junk Mail problems

    I have been using this program for a few months now and it is very good. My only problem with it, is that a lot of the bounces are rejected or produce an error indicating that the email account of the sender is not valid. This is true when the spammer could not care about the address as they...

    Good thread. I found the things that I DON'T want to do, usually gets done because I pay someone else to do it. e.g. mowing the lawn on a stinking hot day.

    OTP and agent agreements

    Re: OTP resale restrictions That would be to try and curb the flippers from scaring away new prospects. I get twitchy when I see a lot of flippers in a development that has not finished. It is all part of the due diligence that is performed when diving into investments.
