Well our fee for our wireless modem was $129,$60 for changing landlords name on telstra to ours,$30 for account establishment fee for electric,$30 for gas set up fee.

Probably doesnt sound alot when you write it down but when these amounts are added to your regular bills aswell....it soon mounds up.

Just something to be aware of thats all.

I just wanted to warn any newcomers to Oz of the 'one off' payments that are involved in setting up your new home.

So far we have had to pay a 'one off' payment to the electric company,telstra, bipond, alinta all for setting up a new account in our name.....ridiculous!!!!

So for all of you budgeting your bills etc...make sure you include all of these 'set up fees' so you dont get caught out like we did.

We are looking forward to actually getting into a routine with our bills so we know what we are paying....without all the 'one offs'!!!!
