Complexities of Moving

Turns out that moving to another country is not as simple as just going to that place and building a home. See, this is what comes of our family never leaving the walls of the family home, even in the modern era. We don’t have any idea of how it all works, so now that some of us would like to move away from the ways of the past, we’re finding it…difficult.

So, first you have to tell the ruling bodies that you’d like to move to a place. You then have to pay for the place, and it’s very expensive even in the currency of the land, and then you have to go through other things. We’ve been advised that we need to find a conveyancer for hire in Melbourne, because we ‘don’t seem to know how buying a home works’. Goodness. It doesn’t seem that complicated to me. Although I understand finding the right property can be a challenge when it needs 11 bedrooms and at least 2 kitchens. The majority of the family still live together in harmony, for the most part.

I’m starting to see what the grandparents mean when they say that moving the family is a bad idea, although maybe not for the reasons they think. It’s so much hassle, dealing with the ways of the land in which one lives like an ordinary citizen. I can see why our family retreated behind the walls of the homestead. We didn’t have to deal with estate agents and conveyancers…although part of that is because, as mentioned, we never moved.

There’s no better time to learn, however. We will do our due diligence on our subjects, as we were taught. We will learn about conveyancers, their inner workings, strengths and weaknesses, the vendors statements they hold so dear. And then…we will strike. By which I mean we’ll sit down in their office for a chat about title transfers.
