The council refused to give details of the dogs or the attacks, saying the information was confidential and the council was not at liberty to pass it on. Lord Mayor Katrina Fong Lim said: The professional opinions council has received to date advise they are not dingoes. Its where a lot of residents walk their dogs. Were asking people to stay away. She said three attacks had been reported to the council but there could have been more. There could also be two dogs involved. You dont know until you catch them, she said. There has been sightings of a couple. She said a cage, similar to a crocodile trap, had been set in the area. We dont bait because domestic dogs are let off the lead there, she said. The traps have been set for 12 weeks. A new survey shows one in five new home buyers are 40. Wayne Buckley waited until he was 52 to take the plunge Picture: KATRINA BRIDGEFORD Older Aussies taking the first home plunge By SARAH CRAWFORD FIRST home buyer Wayne Buckley, 52, may seem to be taking the property plunge late in life, but one in five people looking for their first piece of real estate are just like him. Research has found that they are not buying their first home until they are over 40, when they are in a stronger financial position and ready to settle down. Mr Buckley, an employment program manager from Darwin, said being one of the lucky few who was granted a 100 per cent loan under the former governments My New Home scheme compelled him to take the plunge. That forced my hand, Mr Buckley said. I was saving towards being able to buy something but that made me make a decision far quicker. Mr Bucking said he was hoping to buy a new threebedroom apartment at Kingston Village Apartments in Parap once he had all his finances approved. He said owning property offered security. It is something I never did before because I travelled a fair amount when I was younger and I never got around to doing it, he said. Now it is about security because of the uncertainty of the options available as I get older and my superannuation is not flash because I lived overseas for a long time. The annual Mortgage Choice First Home Buyers survey of 1000 people found 61 per cent purchasing their first property when were aged over 30 years. Those aged 30 to 39 made up 41 per cent of buyers, 14 per cent were aged 40 to 49 and 6 per cent were over 50. Mortgage Choice spokeswoman Belinda Williamson said many first home buyers had researched their ideal location and were keen to settle into a property they would call home for many years to come. The survey also found job security fears had increased over the past year. Almost 18 per cent of first buyers said that was their greatest concern, compared with 11 per cent last year. Inquest into three deaths THE Territory Coroner will hold a four-day public inquest into the deaths of Michael Chisholm, his son Julian and stepdaughter Aaliyaha Webb next year. Mr Chisholm, 23, is believed to have killed his four-year-old son and stepdaughter, 8, before taking his own life at his Leanyer Drive home in March last year. Coroner Greg Cavanagh will hold the inquest from March 19.
