I am worried that he might have diabeties or his is feeling emotional because he just started school 1 month ago?

Q:

If someone worked as part of a real estate agency between 2000-10 selling property on a commission only basis with no OTE's and were required to give the agency manager a personal invoice for the sale, would the manager or agency then be required to pay those individuals super? Given the time lapse could the employee obtain unpaid super? Consider there was no formal employment contact between the parties and agency, yet all worked from one office under single unified company label/brand.

Q:

My partner and I have been discussing buying a new home. We currently live in my home which is worth about $750,000 and the home loan is $310,000. If I didn’t sell my place can we use the equity as a deposit in a new home and does that mean my loan would become an investment loan if we rented it out? The home we are looking is around $1.1M, would there be enough equity in my place to pay a deposit?

Q:

I own a small rural property on the outskirts of a small rural community. The house is the former railway masters cottage for the now defunct railway line. The railway line has been recently transformed into a walking trail. A councilor from the local council contacted me yesterday & said that the council has approved plans for a former railway station to be moved immediately adjacent to my house literally meters away as a tourist attraction. Can I stop them?

Q:

Hi. I have already bought an investment property from the available funds of offset bank account for a mortgage home where I live now.
To keep new house on investment officially I contacted NAB bank. NAB bank is ready to swap over the property title-papers but advices that I will not be able to take advantage of tax benefits by doing so because govt tax officers check what was the purpose of the home loan originally? Please advice me now how do I take advantage of tax benefits?

Q:

Hi. My husband and I have agreed to separate after a ten year marriage. For the past five years I have been a business partner for our painting business. Admittedly he put in most of the hard yards and is definitely the boss !! Since I have been his business partner I have not earned a wage yet now he is basically saying I am entitled to nothing financial when I leave. I don't want to take him to cleaners but surely this can't be right ?

Q:

Hi, we were looking at renting a boarding room for our son with the licensing agreement being in my husband and my son's name. My husband has signed it but my son hasn't as we aren't sure if we want the room now. We have paid a holding fee, bond, next weeks rent and a licence preparation fee. The real estate agent says that we will have to pay a break licence fee and continue to pay rent until someone else takes the room even though we haven't moved in. Is this correct? Thanks Rhonda
