I can warn you that the housing market in Melbourne, especially in the
inner city area, is awful to be looking for a place in; my partner and I
have the ill luck to be hunting at the moment.

I don't imagine the biggest problem will be the rental history being
discarded so much as your needing to compete with twenty to fifty other
applications on any property you care to name.
