Heating your house adequately is a topic that arises for people considering moving to Tasmania or wanting to upgrade their house in Tasmania. As for many areas in the southern parts of Australia, the winters do get cold in Tasmania. We take you through some of the best options for heating your new home.
The Huon Valley, south of Hobart, is a beautiful part of the world. You can enjoy living here and still be only half an hour (or more if you choose) from Hobart. It has long been a popular destination for people moving to Tasmania as it provides the perfect tree-change along with proximity to good services locally in Huonville and other towns.
This is our personal moving to Tasmania story. We are both born and bred Tasmanians, but each moved away as adults and returned together in 2011. We have never regretted this decision.
When you are searching for a rental property it is good to have your documents in place so that you are ready to apply for a property as soon as you find one you like. There are some differences in what property managers will want from you, but this posts goes through what you are most likely required to provide for each adult who will be living at the property.
When you buy a property in Tasmania one of the first issues you will face is whether to use a conveyancer or a solicitor/lawyer to undertake the conveyancing/legal work for you.
Are you wanting to rent a house in Tasmania and have pets? Perhaps you are a landlord and are considering letting a tenant have pets in your property. The short answer is that in Tasmania you can't charge a pet bond. You are only entitled to charge a bond equal to 4 weeks rental regardless of whether the tenant has a pet or not.
Launceston has a population of around 100,000, so it is a regional city. I think it's greatest advantage is that if you want a rural lifestyle you can have it and still be within 15-20 minutes of the city centre if you choose. Of course you can go even further afield if proximity to the city is not as important on a regular basis. Alternatively, a city or suburban lifestyle means you are always close to everything in Launceston as it is pretty compact.
