Make a plan that will allow you to visit communities that share the same area.
However, if you're searching for a home for the entire family, then not only must you find the perfect location, the apartment features and community amenities will also impact you.
Or they may have to hand back all the interest the money has made since the
deposit was given.

Sheila Godes...the label in the border says: "To The Ladies of the Convict ship Committee: This quilt worked by the Convicts of the Ship Rajah during their voyage to Van Diemans Land is presented as a testimony of the gratitude with which they remember their exertions for their welfare while in England and during their passage and also as a proof that they have not neglected the Ladies kind admonitions of being industrious. June 1841"
