Event description

Description

The City of Fremantle is pleased to announce our Adulting 101 series of Youth Talks. These will be run during the school holidays aimed at older young people 15 to 25 years. These talks will help assist you with knowledge and information on a range of topics as you step into adult life. Some will be hands on, some Q & A, some with interactive role plays and you’ll leave all of them with more insight than you started with.

So you’re hoping to move out with some mates into your own place. Whose name is going on the lease and on the bills? Have you thought about it or talked about it? If you’re thinking of moving out this workshop is for you. We will cover:

Leases, bonds and the legal stuff – Be on top of the move…

  • What is a bond and where to apply for bond assistance? How do I apply and what do I need for a 100 point check.
  • Rights and responsibilities of leases. Rental Leases are a legal contract. What happens if I don’t pay the rent?
  • Going to court. What do I do?
  • A brief walk through from thinking about moving into your new rental, renting and ending the lease.
  • Learn to read your utility bill(Gas, power and water).
  • Bill shock! Paying fortnightly and centrepay. How can I bring my usage down?
  • Keeping track of my usage. How much does my cup of coffee cost to make? My 10 min shower cost how much?
  • An in-depth look at how much power, water and gas we use and how to bring our consumption down.
  • Down to earth easy tips at keeping on top of our utility bills and avoiding bill shock.

This workshop is facilitated by Uniting Care West who provide financial counselling in the Fremantle area. We also have copies of the Barefoot Investor for the participants attending. (one per household)
