Ask RiotACT: looking for rental advice

Hello Riotact. Does anyone have some advice on renting out a property in Canberra?

By 15 March 2011

Has anyone else spotted a somewhat gypsie in red van pulled up around Kingston?

Mate caught DUI

By 7 March 2011

Any legals out there?
Mate caught DUI .220 Sat night. Previous history - 3 previous convictions more than 10 yrs ago.
I’m thinking fine up to $2,200 and /or 12 months slammer, and no chance of workers lic as high range?
Does the spent convictions ruling mean the 3 previous convictions will be ignored?
Guesses on punishment welcome!
