Jill speaking. How can I help you?Jane Yes, hello Jill. I’ve got a problem, a complaint I wish to register. Who should I speak to?Woman 1You’ll want to speak to Tracy, the residential manager. Just a moment and I’ll put youthrough.Jane Thanks.TracyHello this is Tracy. I understand your rent is going to be increased?JaneYes this is why I’m calling. I was told that my rent would not be increased for thelength of my 6-month contract, which I signed only four months ago. What’s going on? Is my landlord allowed to do this?TracyI see. Yes…OK. That seems strange. Look, can I take down some of your particularsand I’ll register a formal complaint to the landlord on your behalf.JaneYes, sure, that’d be good.TracyFirstly, name and address/contact details.JaneYes, Jane McSweeny. That’s M-c-S-w-e-e-n-y. 3 Maugher St - that’s M-a-u-g-h-e-r -St, Wendouree, double 3, double 5TracyAnd the phone there?JaneYes, you can contact me on double 3, 4-7-5-6 extension 3176. I generally arrive home by 6:00 in the evening so you can call around that time but not after 9…sorry…8:30 because that’s the time I leave for work.TracyOk, so I should note down that the problem is that your landlord wants to raise your rent? And when did you first move in?JaneYes, well, the contract began on August 1 and….oh hang on…sorry that’s the endingdate. We actually moved in on Feb. 1. TracyOK…good now, if need be you will have to send a letter to the Rental Tenancy Board. But as I said, first let us approach your landlord - on your behalf - and see if we canwork out the problem before it gets to that situation. I’d be very surprised if you haveto send the letter. 95% of these kinds of problems get solved early on.JaneOk TracyNow, if you have any problems you need to discuss, feel free to come in and talk withthe General Manager. In the meantime, if you would just wait until we receive ananswer from your landlord, we’ll be able to then plan our next step…   Created with novaPDF Printer (www.novaPDF.com).

Wow! Nice to see all you international students here today. Thanks for coming. I’m Penny from finance. I wasn’t expecting so many. They told me 30, but there must be at least 50...anyway... For many, if not most of you this is your first time in Australia. You may find our banking system similar to yours. Anyway, if you have any questions,could you leave them ‘till the end?Ok then, well step one for most international students is to open an account. Some of you have brought cash over from your country and, having worked with internationalstudent accounts for many years, I can tell you that the money often goes missing. Evenif only for safety’s sake, open a bank account – it’s the safest place to put your money.  Now in Australia, we have 4 main banks and, lucky for you all four are within walkingdistance of the school. First off, in Scarborough St we have the United Global Bank or UGB as we call it. Next, we have the International bank; when you walk into Pacific Plaza, you can’t miss the big red sign on your right. The Pacific Bank is located in KeyPlaza just 100 meters down the street and Townbank - another international bank - is inSouthport Park.  Now, one of my jobs in Student Services is to locate the best bank accounts for our students from the neighbouring banks.I am happy to say that the banks in this area are quite competitive and I’ve managed tolocate 3 excellent accounts with various pros and cons. The first two are from the UGB. Firstly, the  Easy Saver   account is very popular among international students. The reasonfor this is the low fees and the 10 ATM withdrawals per month. The other account thatdoes well is the Quick Saver. The main reason for this is because once you open anaccount, there are no fees for the first 6 months. No one wants to pay fees, right? Now, the International bank has what they call a Student Savings Account  . This accounthas been quite successful among our international students as well, especially for thosewho need a checking facility. The account offers a cheque book at no additional cost to you The last of the popular student accounts is the Study Account,  which is offered by Pacific Bank. The main advantage with this one is that the account can be linked to a credit card which can also be helpful for students….(Fade)SpeakerA lot of people when they go to a bank to open an account take with them all sorts of documents. I’ve seen some students take restaurant bill statements, rentalagreements…even video rental cards! Well, these are not suitable for opening a bank account. When it comes to opening an account, just remember the 100-point system. Some items get higher points than others but basically you can’t go wrong with your  passport as the primary form of identification...I think that’s worth 75 points. Somestudents have a driver’s license, this is a good secondary form of identification and it’sworth 30 points. Another one that works well is a phone bill with your address on it. Any of these items will easily get you the 100 points needed to open an account. Ok, thatfinishes my….   Created with novaPDF Printer (www.novaPDF.com). Please register to remove this message.
