Well, it’s been awhile since I did my last update. Nothing too interesting to report other than spending alot of time in front of the photocopier and constantly signing documents.
Since the last visit to Porter Davis and paid our deposit not much has happened in the way of colours and variations.
We became worried when it wasn’t until 20/3/09 that we had had some form of communication from them. That’s exactly a month later after paying the deposit. It didn’t bother us too much just concerned that nothing was happening. Luckily this has been resolved and I have been introduced to our Customer Service Coordinator.
I have booked in our Contract appointment with Porter Davis for the 5th May. This will mean that we will have no problem with the First Home Owners Grant and Timing of Contracts and Building. This brings us within 26 weeks from contract date to site start.
The National Tiles selection appointment is on the 28th April to finalise the tile selection. Georgie has a uni exam that day so I am trying to change it but if we can’t we will finalise all the selections earlier and when I go in i will just confirm that is what we want.
Due to the massive workload on the banks at the moment, it took much longer than expected to gain formal approval from CBA. We had to extend the finance approval clause in the land contract for another 2 weeks. Luckily after we applied for an extension the bank approved the loan.
This coming Saturday 28/3 I will be paying the remainder of the land deposit.
As I mentioned above because of the FHOG coming to an end the banks are backlogged with loan applications. This caused our loan approval to take ages and constant sweaty palms lol.
That’s about it for the moment. Georgie has been buying heaps of stuff for the house like frypans, cutlery and glasses. I think she is now hooked on buying stuff. Well atleast its not coming out of my pocket rofl! And it keeps her busy!
