Today we signed all the paperwork for the house and had all the contingencies removed, so now all we wait for is the mortgage company to come through with the money and the house is ours on the 3rd. It has been a very stressful weekend, but we got through it. What they did was illegal (giving us new disclosures the day we were supposed to sign off on the contingencies) but we’ll deal with that once we move in.
I didn’t think it was going to happen. Maybe this is the usual case for buying a house. It certainly wasn’t the case for getting our place in Sydney. We didn’t have a real estate agent and instead found a lawyer who handled everything. It was a bit easier.
But it is ours and we’re happy with it. It will be fun to make it our own. And I really can’t wait to start working in the yard!
