I was supposed to complete on my house today

But the builders solicitors involved didn’t apply to the HCA for a document which means we can’t complete. So I’m sat here on the sofa in tears.

Our mortgage runs out today. The builders solicitors have all the funds. They hope to complete tomorrow but It’s going to go wrong I know it.

Added to that my car engine management light has come on.

I just need a sad whinge.

flowers Fingers (and toes) crossed that all goes well tomorrow and you're on here with a happy update!

Fingers crossed for you that in 24 hours you'll be sitting on your sofa in your new house with happy tears! it probably happens more often than you'd think.

Oh no!
I feel you, our electrical inspector had decided he doesn't like the building inspector so we have had to rewire a bunch of things and now he is saying he had no recollection of having approved the solar system! We couldn't have gotten the REC with the power company without his approving the system!
Fucking idiot!

Sorry op, that probably doesn't help. But it does suck whenthe professionals don't do their jobs!

Happened to us 3 days before Christmas. Is just the worst feeling. We managed to get mortgage extended very easily and did complete just after Christmas and now in our forever home. Hope you get it all sorted

And I’m in.

We finally completed at 5:15 today. We actually moved in at 1pm.

My dad tore shreds off the builders. The house was a mess.

Oh well Indian for dinner and a lot of moving and tidying and putting away!

Congratulations! Don't let the builders go before you check EVERYTHING!

See, told you we'd be waiting for a happy update.
Sorry it's been left a mess but at least you're in. How exciting!

Vanilla - oh don’t worry my dad tore into the site manager so much they have a five page snagging list to do and they have to have it done by Friday.
