    Incidentally the best guess in the international markets is the canal will never be completed. They don't have a captive population of coolies and its a blue-sky bet by some Chinese entrepreneurs.

    I'm with Davo on this. We can admire China for its extraordinary rise from a peasantry economy but the human price is heavy. Starvation under Mao Tse Tung, summary trials, forced abortions etc etc....

    You really don't understand the importance of a home, do you. The memories, sense of safety, belonging, a whole pantheon of cherished bonds which a home means to an older person.

    To be honest Glenn, I don't even know what a housing accord is? And that's with a background in law and volunteer work with Habitat For Humanity (building houses).

    All very good and well done.

    $40 per month. If I owned the building I doubt that would be attractive. Air conditioners (heat pumps) don't last forever so the owner will be saddled with a machine which dies after 5 years.

    Agreed Ivan. It's a simple matter to append a Lender's execution to the Loan Agreement for the sake of completeness.

    No it is not possible. Every registered proprietor on a title must agree to the encumbrance - in this case the mortgage. She has to have signed loan docs and an A&I to become an owner and a...

    Mmm...someone in a bank told you that? I suspect that's not what their lending securities section says. Who supplies the Solicitors Certificate?

    Lets be practical: pittosporums are not trees. Pleasant hardy shrubs certainly, and commonly used for hedges. This sounds like a hedge out of control. They are easily trimmed and recover well.

    With respect, you are misled. There are many, in fact most towns and cities within New Zealand where a young couple can buy a home and prosper. In beautiful surroundings.
