My husband has just secured a six month contract in KL expiring in August, 2018.  The contract has a high possibility of being extended, which is when our 8 year old son and I will then plan on joining him (from Australia).  A couple of questions please:-

1.  We are looking at an international school.  When does the school year start, and when should we start applying to schools?

2.  How will they assess which year level our son will go into?  Will he need to complete some sort of testing before being accepted etc which will indicate his year level?

3.  There seem to be many types of accommodation in KL (eg villas, condos, terrace/link/townhouse, semi detached/bungalow etc).  What are the best choices to start looking at which will allow a small dog (we would prefer a small yard/private outdoor area?  Does having a dog make it more difficult to find rental accommodation?

4.  Finally, are there many furnished rental properties, or is there more choice looking at unfurnished and then hiring/rental furniture (if this is an option)?

Thanking you in advance.
