Hi Everyone,


Welcome to the September issue of our newsletter.

At its meeting today, the Reserve Bank of Australia decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 2.5%.

All pool owners are now required to register their pool (or spa pool) on the state-wide Swimming Pool Register. Pool owners have until 29 October 2013 to register their pool. After that date, any pool owners who have not registered their pool face on-the-spot fines of $220 or a maximum court penalty of $2,200. Registration can be carried out either online at the NSW Swimming Pool Register website or lodging a Pool Registration form at your local council. At the time of registration, pool owners are required to carry out a self-assessment of their pool, and advise if their pool meets the relevant pool safety standards.

In this issue we show you how the housing market is Australia's new economic driver, how rental rates have increased at more than double the rate of home values and we list the records you should keep for assets that may be subject to capital gains tax. In addition, we give you some alternative ways of entering the property market and we explain the six secrets to building a successful investment portfolio.

Please feel free to contact us about any matter. We are always happy to hear from you and to assist!

Kind regards,

Donna Westwood
