Often legislation is introduced to protect the interests of the powerful and the wealthy, there are implications that deliberately impact negatively on those who are not "in the club". I'll bet this legislation was formulated by an abuser. Women beware of the abusive "set up" whereby an accountant or an intending abuser suggests that your name not be on the title deed to a property. The idea is that the spouse on the higher/ male wage can claim negative gearing - sounds innocent? Here is the real intent: abuse and when you leave you will find you have no claim on the property! You are obligated to the mortgage debt but you have no say whatsoever over the sale, disposal, estate inheritance or any other interest in your home. Result? You have a considerable debt, your credit rating is at the mercy of the abuser and you and your children are now homeless! Did you use your own property that you owned 100% outright as collateral on what was intended to be a joint property? Consider it now gone - all to the abuser. Sell your property? The bank (in this case ING - may they rot in hell too) will gift all (yes all of the proceeds) to your abuser. The accountant? Well he's probably sitting at home, warm, cosy and smug - maybe the abuser gave him a bottle of wine? You and the kids? Well you obviously weren't in the power club...let's hope as an older Australian facing life on the streets through no fault of your own that the strain wasn't so much you did anything drastic... Women we need to take on this legislation and get this revoked this is putting who knows how many women through undeserved hell. If I hear a male suggesting this again - I will know they are intending fraud and abuse - leave them.
