By 14 November 2012

Did anyone read this article in the Canberra Times about the OwnPlace scheme?
Oddly enough, I can’t find it anywhere on the Canberra Times website now.
But I was absolutely appalled by the apathetic and unfriendly attitude of the Land Development Agency. I don’t care if it’s not LDA’s responsibility. At the very [...]
