For the past month me and my girlfriend have been in the process of buying a house.
Yesterday (Thursday 18th June) we collected the keys to the house!
It has been an up-and-down journey. Thinking: “Will we get it?”, “Are we doing the right thing?”
It started off pretty fast, with instructing the solicitor, arranging a mortgage, getting quotes for all of the insurances that we will need, and the survey.
Then it seemed to go dead.
Then suddenly, more paperwork to sign! Followed by the exchange of contracts, and a rough estimate as to when it will all complete.
Then on Thursday I got a phone call from the solicitors saying they had the money from the mortgage company, do we want to complete today?
Two hours later, we were told it was all done, and we could pick the keys up!
We are now the proud owners of a 1960’s mid-terraced three-bed house in Lawrence Weston!
We are hoping to move in around the start of July.
