Wowser, what's with the short hand? Posting in forums isn't quite the same as sms and all the abbreviations make it a little hard to read for most of us who aren't used to it

If you have a permanent job, I don't really think you'll have a problem getting a mortgage. It might depend on the visa you are on though, but if you're planning to get a job, then I'm guessing this means you'll be on some kind of long stay/work visa?

Speak English or you'll never get a mortgage. If you're on a permanent residency visa you will have no problems applying for a mortgage. Its up to the bank if they give it to you though. If you're on a temporary visa you have to get the purchase approved my the Foreign Investment Review Board.
