Sad News – but always a Silver Lining!

Well I am sad to report that the settlement did not go as planned today. The Vendors were unable to resolve the issue from their end in time.

However the Silver lining is that everything is resolved from the vendors side now, so we should have no issues on Wednesday when the settlement is scheduled to take place at 2:15pm.

So even though we are disappointing we did not get the house today, we are excited that the vendors issues have now been fixed, which will allow us a smooth purchase of the house on Wednesday.

So back to counting down the Sleeps we go!


Today is Settlement Day – But will Everything be Settled on Time?

Well today is the day. The day when we are supposed to have our house purchase settled and finally get the keys to the door.

We are all excited, yet a little apprehensive too. As we don’t wish to get too excited, in case something goes wrong. BUT we do want to enjoy these last few moments while we can.

We are just awaiting confirmation that the sale has been finalised. Then we will be running off to the paint shop to purchase a few sample pots. A trip to the local supermarket will also help us pick up some cleaning products as the house needs a really big clean. No one has been living in it now for around six months and it shows. There is dust everywhere and everything needs a good spring clean. I can’t wait to get inside and clean, Clean CLEAN!

Once we have confirmation that we now own the house, we will need to get a quote on having the carpet replaced. We hope to do this in every room, but as always it depends on over all cost. Plus we need to have a small wall removed in the kitchen, so our fridge will fit in! – all in good time, let’s just hope we get the keys to the door today – Fingers crossed.
