Fantastic, wonderful, exciting news!!!
« on: March 03, 2010, 05:06:14 pm »
Since we saw a potential smallholding last October we have been trying to get a bank interested in giving us a mortgage, up till now with no luck.

Today, finally after many months and spending 6k for various reports for various banks we have now got the funding. The letter confirming this is to be sent to both solicitors tomorrow. ;D :) ;) :-*

I know this sounds all very awkward and slightly unbelievable considering we had 100K sitting at our solicitors as a down payment but there are reasons which I will explain further when we have signed.
Im wary of saying which property it is on an open board in case we get gazzumped.

I got it George.  ;D

As my first act as a smallholder Im going to order 20 rescue chickens for the next collection in May.  ;D

Good girl re rescuing 20 girlies, and well done - hope it all goes smoothly.  When do you get entry?

Congratulations!

We've also concluded the purchase of our new home today, so we'll be taking entry on 14th May. It seems to have taken forever from the verbal acceptance of our offer on 8th December but we're there at last.
