Re: Is 50,000 sterling a ok salary in outer London area?

A house in the UK will almost certainly be freehold.

Flats will almost certainly be leasehold.

As you are looking for a house, this really isn't even a consideration as freehold is...

Re: TAX

It isn't a gift or a loan and there are no tax implications for either you or the family member, other than they are liable for tax on the very small interest that it may accrue. I guess the only...

Re: Parents visa

Is that a decent private /company pension or do you mean UK state pension? If the latter, well it will get frozen and won't go very far especially with current low exchange rates. I can't imagine...

Re: Parents visa

People moving on a parent visa usually are financially secure, the mere cost of the visa rules out those that are not. If you are not financially secure and don't have an income, I don't really...

I am baffled as to what you think is unique, looks like a bog standard "which visa" post to me, thousands just like it. ;)

The partner visa would be easier than a skilled migrant visa if she...

Re: Working Holiday Visa vs. Partnership

Pros and cons to both approaches. As I see it the main advantage to the WHV is that it lets you try things out before committing and incurring that large partner visa fee. My only question would...

Re: Newly Qualified Midwife looking to move to Brisbane
