Hurray…we are making progress again. Having walked around the house again with our snagging report in our hands we checked off everything that has been done and everything that has not…..
I am pleased to say that the majority of the 200 items listed have been rectified – with only minor issues remaining. For example, one of the toilets is not flushing properly, and the latch on the garden gate is bent. Esprit Homes have promised to put these issues right between exchange and completion. I believe them – because so far they have delivered when promised on these types of defects.
We are scheduled to exchange this Friday, with completion on the following Thursday, 8th September. We had hoped to complete before the start of the new school year, but in the end couldn’t do this simply because of the bank holiday. Solicitors apparantly, take every Mon and Tues whenever a bank holiday monday occurs. We wait with baited breath….in the mean time have bought a big king size bed for our new spare bedroom, a bargain on ebay. It is currently taking up all the limited space in our current dining room.
