Home Living : January 13th 2009
2 HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, January 13, 2009 Beware the fine print HOMELIVING Did you read the fine print when you signed for an interest-free deal? If not, the chances are you're not alone. Research commissioned by the Office of Fair Trading revealed that consumers rarely read the fine print on interest-free deals and have a limited understanding of the details. Interest-free deals are becoming increasingly popular because they offer instant gratification but there are plenty of pitfalls for the unwary. Forty-five per cent of respondents to the survey recognised that the suggested minimum repayment on the statement would not pay off the total amount of the loan within the interest-free period. You should do your own calculations on repayments and check the fees, charges and the date the interest-free period ends. Make sure you can afford to pay off the deal before the end of the interest-free period otherwise you could end up paying up to 30 per cent interest, making the purchase very expensive. Pool safety warning The prospect of jumping in a nice cold pool is appealing. Whether it's an inflatable pool, paddle pool, wading pool or inground pool, the risks are the same and safety around is paramount. Pools present a real risk of drowning -- a child needs only a small amount of water to drown. Children need to be supervised around pools at all times. When building a pool, ensure it is built in accordance with Australian Safety standards by a licensed pool builder.
