We Have Visitors

Tuesday, 28 January 2014


We had a few nervous moments, as resolve wanted to delay settlement til the 31st January without penalties due to us having signed an out dated first home owner grant form. The conveyancer was swift in response saying Peet will penalize any late transactions ekkkkkk.

Did we sweat or what!!!!

Resolve was waiting on a UIN number for us but turns out our lender had already sent it to the conveyancer PHEW!!!

So settlement has finally happened (at 2.30 today to be precise), we now own our block of mud ( well the bank does) haha

Now the wait is on for all site reports then developer approval then finally the exciting one the building permit.

Our prestart lady has emailed me saying it should take 8-10 weeks from title til we are handed over to construction. But I think its more of a matter of how long a piece of string is. Some people have waited 15 weeks...

Lets hope the wait is within their time frame :)

I should hear from her soon I guess to pay the $4500 which is needed to upgrade our house due to our lot being in the bush fire prone zone. YES we are still in it which is pretty disappointing. That's a very expensive variation.... That money WAS going to help to pay progress payments while renting.

But these things happen we will get there... gotta keep chugging along..... and roll on construction......
