    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    Hello, it's Thumps Hi, so here it is July 2015, and i can tell you, unfortunately we have not made it to Bali to live at this time. Hubby started a new job in September 2014, and to date they do not offer FIFO from or to Bali, so financially, it was going to cost us too much, so, we are...

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    DenpasarHouse - yes we have been 10 times over the years, the recent being last year. What is it that worries you? I'm certainly not naive, and know that we can't move to Bali overnight. So your post rather confuses me....:icon_rolleyes:

    Thanks Scout. We are actually booked to come to Bali in September for 13 days, we had already booked and paid, before even the idea of considering a move to Bali. Seems so far away though, now that we have this idea to move there. Guess if it came to it then, hubby and I could do a quick trip...

    Thankyou Fred, that information is very helpful. Yes we will definitely sell up everything, not worth the hassle of moving everything. Any recommendation on medical insurance, and as to what companies will insure us for that amount of time?

    Thankyou RonB, for your kind words. I have EVERY intention of following through with our decisions to move ourselves and the kids to Bali, so Markit you can back off and stop with all the preaching, worry about your life, and basically saying we are bad parents.

    I certainly got the point as to what Markit was getting at, and maybe there has been a lot of people who would think it's going to be like going on a long extended holiday, when in reality I know it will certainly have it's ups and downs, by its lime anywhere in the world, life is what you make it.

    Markit. Not sure really how to take your reply! But I for one cannot see how a young family cannot make it work in Bali, so i guess I'll ignore the negative comments you made. You were right on one thing, renting will probably be the way to go.

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    Thanks Davita, we were atually just thinking, that renting may be the way to go for the first year, for that same reason. Ok so with renting in Bali, is it much more of a straight forward process. In Perth, Australia, we currently rent. VERY EXPENSIVE. We also have rent inspections every 3...

    I couldn't imagine going without our dogs, that would break my heart. Thanks for the info samsian. Next question, when we do finally decide on a Villa to leasehold, does the whole amount need to be paid upfront? Or can you just pay like a deposit?

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    Your advice is a dream come true Davita, it's fantastic to finally find someone who can answer me direct and honestly. So what are the suburbs of Sanur that you suggest. We haven't got a huge budget, but don't want something that we may have problems with either. How would it work for visas etc...

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    Davita, thankyou so much. That clears up the buying part. We will definitely only want leasehold. No, I am not married to an Indonesian. None of us, apart from the mother in law is over 55. What's involved with getting an Indonesian to sponsor us, and what is the reason for it? Also Davita, can...

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    I guess we would decide in 25 years That is where I get confused, what is the best way to buy. Freehold or leasehold?

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    In reference to number 2, we definitely want to buy, not sure what using a nominee is though? Budget for a house would be no more than $280 000AUD.

    Hi Everyone, new to forum. Need lots of advice about Moving to Bali Please.....

    I was referred to this forum from trip advisor. So here goes.... We, meaning my family of 2 adults and 2 kids ages 5 and 15, are very seriously wanting to purchase a Villa (hopefully in Sanur area), and move to Bali from Australia. Mother-in-law will probably join us too. I am after some...
