Lol I probably sound stupid but this city is huge I grew up in a town with 20,000 people and went to uni in NZs second biggest city with only 300,000ish people so it's taking a bit to work everything out etc when we don't know anyone here...
But thanks for the advice

We had a similar problem when we first started trying to rent, except I ran my own (successful) business and DP earned over $100k!
We had no rental history (both owned previously) and my accountant was family so that didn't look good either!
We eventually lied and wrote a letter stating my mother contributed to our household and we got the next one we applied for!! Unbelievable. That too was in Bris!
Now we are looking to rent elsewhere as our current place doesn't have enough room for bubs and we aren't getting what we are applying for and it's really frustrating!
Can't wait until the land we want is available to buy and we don't have to deal with this rubbish anymore!

That's ODD even before DD when I didn't work we had no problems getting houses with just DH working. Same thing now that we have DD.

SammyP... there is also an intercampus bus between the Ipswich and St. Lucia campuses... so if you could find a rental closer to the Ipswich campus you could use the intercampus bus to get to St Lucia. (They are both campuses of University of Queensland)
I find it strange too. We've always gotten the first house we applied for. And until this year I was a SAHM on parenting payment and DH was only making about 45000 a year...
Is there a reason you need a house and yard? Could you just rent an apartment or townhouse for a while, until you start a family?
(No way I'd want the maintenance of a house unless I had little people! I can't wait for them to leave home... so I can downsize! lol.)

I have a couple in our rental and the woman doesn't work. She might receive some sort of benefit but it never worried us that she isn't working.
