Family Pledge Home Finance – Tips for becoming a Guarantor

September 12, 2014 in Financing by Frank Zelasko

Guarantor home loan (also known as Family Pledge Finance) is popular amongst first home buyers. You may require a guarantor if you are looking at applying for a home loan and the lender/credit provider is concerned about the following factors:

>> You may not have saved the necessary 20% deposit to purchase your dream home

>> Your limited credit history, or

>> Your low income

Definition of a Guarantor

A guarantor is best-defined as being a third party (a family member or a best friend) who promises to provide payment on a loan or any other liability in the event of default.

By having a guarantor, you may be able to buy your dream home easily. Other benefits of having a guarantor can be:

>> Some lenders/credit providers will allow you to borrow 100% of the purchase price plus 5% costs of your first home or investment property without the need for proof of savings

>> You will save on the Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI) premium

The Impacts of being a Guarantor

Like many people, you may believe that your responsibility to being a guarantor is limited only to ensuring that your family member or best friend pays the debt on time. However, as a guarantor you are not only bound to pay the loan amount if the borrower defaults, but the transaction can have a negative impact on your credit score rating.

Have you been asked to be a Guarantor for a Loan?

If you have been asked to be a guarantor for a loan to support a family member or best friend, do not take tension. Before, you feel weighed down by the obligation to become a guarantor, you should consider what you will get out of the arrangement given that you will be responsible for repaying the loan if the borrower fails to repay the loan. Because, as a guarantor:

>> You are liable in the event that the borrower will fail to repay their loan

>> You may be required to service the portion of the loan that you have placed a guarantee for, in the event of a loan repayment default

>> You can lose your house in the event of default by the borrowers

>> You can provide either your owner occupied or investment property as security

>> You may have to refinance your existing loan to provide a guarantee to the borrowers, and lenders/credit providers will then have to undergo a full assessment of your financial position

>> You may find that some lenders/credit providers will not accept second mortgages as security for the guarantee

As part of the lenders/credit provider’s requirements, guarantors will be asked to seek independent legal and financial advice. So, contact a reputed and experienced finance brokerage firm before becoming a guarantor. It will analyse your situation and help you in making the right decision.

Singh Finance offers low doc home loan. You can contact the firm for seeking financial advice on becoming a guarantor. The firm will even help you if you want family pledge home finance for buying a property. Call on 0424 190 908 or enquire online to book an appointment.

BigTreeSupply.com: How Trees Grow

September 11, 2014 in Landscaping by Nancy Penrose

Trees pass through many stages as they grow. If a tree starts its life as a seed, it will initially grow a short stem. Most of its energy will be used to continue the growing process.

Young trees are typically small and thin. During this early period they are also vulnerable. Both seedlings and transplant trees will not only need space to grow but also protection from the environment. Tree growth will be centered around the root system and canopy. Branches will become long and slender. Very little pruning is needed during this period.

Once a tree has become established, it will grow at a fast pace. The tree will have an increased ability to defend itself against pests, illness and disease. A good branch structure can be created during this period with pruning.

Saplings are trees that have reached several feet in height and whose growth process has started to slow down. Most saplings have a trunk that is a foot or less in diameter.  Saplings will often look like mature trees in size, without being able to reproduce.

When a tree reaches maturity, branches will be strong with abundant foliage and the tree can reproduce. Tree limbs will continue to grow, but at a slower rate. This is the time when a tree is at its strongest. Mature trees can be thinned to maintain the tree’s health and appearance.

During the later stages of maturity, many older trees will develop flat-topped canopies. Major limbs may also start to die and the tree’s energy resources will decline. The trees ability to produce seeds will also reduce.

Pruning dead limbs from an older tree will help maintain its health. Consider the health of the tree before pruning. Older trees cannot recover from over-pruning like younger trees. Pruning an older tree also makes it more susceptible to insects and disease. Tree nurserys have arborists that can give you advice on the best care for your type of tree.

During the end stages of a tree’s life (also called senescence) more limbs die and break. The tree will also lose its ability to ward off pests and disease. The trunks of senescent trees will typically become hollow. Eventually, the tree may fall. Senescent trees that die and remain standing are called deadwood.

There are many factors that determine how long a tree will live, including the overall health of the tree, environmental factors and maintenance. The size of a tree depends on the species.

Trees like the Western white pine, a timber tree, can grow up to 160 feet tall. White bark pines will reach 40 feet tall. The Sitka spruce can grow as tall as 140 feet. A Douglas fir can reach heights of up to 200 feet.

Dead trees should be removed by a certified arborist. Falling branches or limbs can cause injuries and damage power lines, as well as property. A big tree specialist who is expert in big tree moving will have the equipment that is needed to remove a dead tree before it falls. Someone with experience will also know the best way to remove the tree from your property.

Successful European Relaxation Music “A Baby’s Lullaby” Coming to America

September 5, 2014 in Music by Abashley Barnett

1888 Press Release – Chantal Hartmann’s three-volume new age music series, built around a 64-BPM heartbeat pulse to promote relaxation for mothers and children, is set for U.S. release.

Las Vegas, NV-AZ – “A Baby’s Lullaby” is a three-volume new age music series created by German composer Chantal Hartmann that serves as a natural sleep aid and general relaxation tool for new and expectant mothers and their children. This research-based music has been designed around a heartbeat pulse of 64 beats per minute, as music at about this rate promotes relaxation by bringing brain waves from the beta to alpha range, while the heartbeat sound has a calming effect on the baby, as it is reminiscent of being in the womb. Relaxation is further encouraged through Hartmann’s soothing vocals, harmonious sound textures and delicate string arrangements.

“A Baby’s Lullaby” was first introduced in Germany five years ago. The three volumes within the series – “Elation,” “Senses” and “Tenderness” – have since accumulated over 50,000 download purchases throughout Europe while receiving endorsements from music therapists, doctors and mothers alike. The complete music series is now being released to the American market as a physical three-CD box set to include one-hour seamless deluxe versions of each volume.

The music reaches across borders through the use of Hartmann’s unique artistic language created with vocables – words that have no specific meaning.

“I wanted to compose music that neither distracts nor narrates a story, but instead encourages the listener to discover their natural slumbering power through imagination and emotion,” Hartmann states.

Chantal Hartmann was born and raised in the Black Forest of southwestern Germany where she received formal training in voice, piano and violin. Over the past two decades her compositions have been featured on numerous albums, television shows and commercials throughout Europe. She contributes both musically and artistically as a singer, vocal coach, composer and arranger for various artists, with credits including Ireen Sheer, Fabrizio Faniello and Graham Bonney.

Hartmann has written, produced and performed the entire series of “A Baby’s Lullaby: Deep Relaxation for Mother and Child”, being released in the United States by Las Vegas-based label Cixi Digital Records on Sept. 16, 2014.

How To Wear Clip In Hair Extensions?

September 2, 2014 in Beauty, Health & Fitness by henrys beck

In general, clip in hair extensions, come in a wide range of consistencies, colors and lengths, so that any women can easily get her matching set. The great thing about this product is that it will give a very realistic effect. Another important benefit of this type is that it adds instant length and volume for achieving a quick change in your appearance. Here are some tips on how to wear clip in hair extensions:

Prepare and comb your hair: Before attaching extensions, it is important that you should brush your original tress and should keep it ready without any knots and tangles. It is important that your original pony should be free from any sort of wetness, so that application of hair extensions can be done easily.

Section and clip your hair: You can begin the attachment process by placing your thumb above any of your ears. Now, follow the crown of your head, thereby creating a straight part that start from one ear and ends in another. It will look as if you are styling your hair in half up-do method. Then, collect the top portion of your hair that was sanctioned towards the top of your head and twist it out of the way. You can use a clip for ensuring that the extensions are rightly placed and will never fall out.

Horizontal length: It is important that the horizontal length of the human hair extension should be near your scalp along the part that you have allocated. First, you will have to attach the middle clip and then should go on with the other two side clips.

Re-sectioning the hair: Then, you must let your original hair loose and should re-section it at a distance of about approximately an inch from your last section. In this part, you will have one more large extension with three clips.

Blend in the sides: In every set of the product you purchase, you will find a few one-clip-sized extensions. Then, be sure to create another section at about an inch above the top of your ear. Just like what you did in the larger size, you can apply the smallest one-clip extension here. This will ensure that the human hair extension blends in the length all through your head.

The end: Finally, you will have to finish the work by attaching the rest of your hair extensions. The rest can be randomly placed throughout your scalp for creating volume and for blending with your natural tress.

Summer Holiday Tech Tips to Protect your Gadgets

August 27, 2014 in Data Recovery, Information Technology, Security by Erika Chitty

If you feel indispensable to your company and you need to be in contact all the time, then the chances are you will want to take your work phone, tablet or pc on holiday with you. Unfortunately, combining sun, sea and sangria with our beloved gadgets can often cause a whole host of problems.

If you are sort of person who can’t bear to leave your emails unread whilst you’re away from the office, or just want to tell your workmates what a great time you’re having, then you need to read M2 Computing’s top tips on looking after your IT whilst away, especially if it belongs to your employer.

Saving your waterlogged smartphone

Going to the seaside? Sitting by the pool with a nice drink? Putting your smartphone in imminent danger of drowning is not a good idea. Fortunately, you can take some simple measures to protect it, such as a smartphone condom – a thermoplastic covering that protects from water, sand, and any other damaging things which get into the those little holes and crevices while on holiday. Or how about a waterproof case to keep your emails dry during the day? They come in various sizes so you can get them for your laptop and tablet.

But what happens if you drop your unprotected phone into the water? First thing, don’t panic. A simple trick is to take out the SIM and battery and place the phone in a bag of dry white rice overnight. The rice will absorb all the moisture and in most cases, leave your phone in perfect working order by the morning.

How to get sand out of your device

It’s easy to get sand in your phone or laptop if you take it to the beach. If this happens then the best thing to do is get yourself a can of compressed air. Remember that sand can be quite damaging, so if you use a cloth or something like a cotton bud to clean things out it is liable to cause scratches and other damage. A can of compressed air with blow that sand back onto the beach where it belongs without causing any damage to the hardware.

Keeping your gadgets safe from prying fingers

The other thing you need to worry about on holiday is keeping your smartphone and laptop safe. More things are stolen on holiday that at any time simply because thieves are on the lookout and we’re less attentive when enjoying ourselves. Try not to leave your gadget lying about and make sure you have a proper password strategy in place so that if someone does get hold of your pc or smartphone they can’t get your personal details so easily.

Protecting your data online

Changes in European rules are making it easier for us to access the internet abroad. Finding a Wi-Fi hotspot is convenient but you also need to be aware that it raises security issues and makes you more vulnerable to hacking.

It’s always a good idea to talk to your IT provider if you are going to be making sensitive transactions or sending messages whilst on holiday. They will be able to recommend something like a SSL or VPN connection that will protect both you and your company. If you are using a Wi-Fi hotspot then try to avoid making transactions with your bank on your pc, instead opt for their mobile app which will be more protected.

The purpose of a holiday is to relax and have a good time. In this day and age, many of us have to keep in contact with work in case an emergency comes up. But of course, keeping your gadgets safe whilst away from home is something we should all be concerned about, whether we need to keep in touch with the boss or not.

And just a little preparation and thought can help prevent any big dramas spoiling your holiday.

Do It Yourself-Repair Sliding Glass Door Rollers

August 26, 2014 in Home Improvement by mac heal

Is your old patio door becoming more and more difficult to open? Does it take a lot of effort to pull open? Does it no longer slide like it used to? If so, it could be time for the rollers on the door to be changed.
Eventually every sliding glass, or patio, door will need help. They get harder and harder to open and close over time and the most common problem is that the rollers they slide on simply wear out.
Sliding Glass Doors are ideal for allowing sunlight to enter and keeping intruders out. If you find that sliding your glass door open is difficult or that the door makes a screeching noise when sliding, there’s no need to replace the door.
Most aluminum sliding glass doors use single-assembly rollers. Most are steel, although some use nylon.
There’s not even any need to call a repair guy. Follow the simple steps outlined below and learn how to quickly and easily repair your sliding glass door rollers.
The most obvious first effort should be to clean the track out – remove any debris, small rocks or gravel, etc. Vacuum the track thoroughly and see if there is any improvement – this is sometimes all it takes and is quick and easy to do.
Step 1- Take the door off
Step 2- Remove the wheels
Step 3- Clean the parts
Step 4- Install the new wheels
Step 5- Put the door back on
Tips & Warnings
• Replace both rollers at once, even if one of them is in better condition. Using one old roller with one new one makes the new roller wear out faster because it must compensate for the lower performance of the old roller.
• Adjusting the rollers for a snug fit improves home security by preventing would-be burglars from lifting the door off of its frame to gain entry to your home.
• Always take the roller with you to the hardware store to avoid purchasing the wrong piece. If your door has a top and bottom roller, purchase two new rollers.
• Always have a friend help you lift the door(s).
• Highly recommend getting a helping hand in order to lift the door out, and avoid injuring yourself!
