So close, but yet so far..........

Jase got a call from PD today. They are ready to start !!!!!!!! However, we are still waiting on R**s to pull a finger out *ho hum* going on past experience they won't break any records........We were also advised by our Mortgage Broker that because we are now combining the land and construction mortgage R**s want to charge us ANOTHER valuation fee on the land, even though they valued it for the land mortgage 3 weeks ago !!!!!!!! I KID YOU NOT ! They want money basically for breathing.......Who's idea was it to de-regulate the banking industry.......

Anyhoo, at least PD are ready to go :) So as soon as the ok comes from R**s, off we go !!!

ARRRGHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a little tip, If you ever consider obtaining finance with R***S, then don't ! They have only had 45 days to get our documents organised for the sale of our house which was supposed to settle on Thursday, but guess what ? We find out today that they haven't done anything yet. Despite repeated contact from our Mortgage broker !!! Our MB is just about to lose the plot with them and can't believe their lack of service and incompetence. The rsult of this is that the new owners of the house are doing their nana, we have to wait longer for payment and we have to delay our land settlement again !!!!!

ARRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As soon as our house is built we are changing lenders.

Busy busy busy.......

Have a fair bit to update today. Am finally back online after waiting for over a week for broadband to be connected only to find out that it is not available in our area (even though we have moved less then 1/2 a km away from our old house *eye roll*)

We signed our contracts for the new house on the 27/04 and were told that building would start in June instead of July, YIPPEEEEEE !!!!!!! Only a few minor problems with some detials in the contract and these have now been fixed.

Got the keys for our rental on the 27/04 and moved in that weekend. We have finally settled in are happy for this to be home for the next 7 months or so. Spent 4 hours cleaning our old house, that settles on the 17/05 so I am glad we had left plenty of time. Had a bit of a cry as I looked out into the backyard and all the boys toys and play equipment were gone, it seemed so empty and lifeless.

Am getting used to the pinkness of our rental, although I don't think I will be buying anything in pink for a long time, lol.

I think we have sorted out the lounge we are buying for the rumpus room and the outdoor lounge. Now to find the 'prefect' barbie !
