We complete today, 21st, after four weeks and two days since our offer was accepted.
We have been pushing the estate agents and solicitors, and finally agreed a date.
The money has been sent by us and received by the solicitor in readiness.
We are now practically skint.
When we purchased the bungalow in Poole, on completion we were handed seven sets of keys. For months thereafter neighbours were returning further sets as the old lady had given them out to everyone just in case she was ever taken poorly. If her lounge curtains weren’t open by 10 am, someone would go round to see if she was OK.
Like Poole, there is only one entrance, so Hubby will take the old lock out to go and purchase a new one of the correct dimensions whilst Maggie and I house guard.
As we are travelling up today, we are taking a few things, though the main move will be on Saturday. I shall be cleaning cupboards and putting things away where I can. Tea bags, mugs, milk and biscuits are ready to go!
Friends who have relatives close by are helping us, so we intend to contribute to their fuel and treat them to a chinese meal on Saturday night.
Whereas last time we were looking for property in Lincolnshire prices were running away from us, we are actually buying for just a thousand pounds more than the house we sold three years ago.
