Update on moving home…

If you are not aware we are in the process of moving home, you can read part one here. I just thought I would do an update to document where we are currently at.

Things have not been plain sailing so far so we are hoping things will be a bit better from now on. So our chain finally completed about 8 weeks after we sold our house. The top of our chain is a really old lady who just didn’t seem to understand that so many people under her were waiting on her to get a property. It all became very frustrating for everyone involved, however she has now found a place and the chain is complete.

At the moment we seem to be filling in lots and lots of paperwork, taking lots of calls about the new mortgage and just starting to get everything in place for the new house. Our survey is being done on the house we are buying on 31st May so that’s very exciting. The survey was done on our house a couple of weeks ago now and that’s come back perfect.

We are currently at the stage now where things go quiet for a while whilst everyone waits for their surveys to come back. Hopefully it wont take too long and we can soon get a date to move.  Hoping to be moved by August, because if it isn’t before August it wont be until September. August seems to be a very busy time in our chain for holidays.

I have finally started to pack up our loft. OMG didn’t realise we had so much stuff, what a mission that has been. I am however starting to get there with it and getting on top of the mess that is our loft.

So that’s all I have to update you on right now… I will carry on documenting our journey right up until we get moved and settled in. I will add some videos to my Youtube channel along the journey as well, so please go over and subscribe to my channel Blogging Mummy for video updates as well.

    Aw sorry its taking so much time. Hopefully it wont be too much longer for you. Yes one thing that becomes very apparent when you move is how much stuff you have. Happened to us too! I try and do regular spring cleans now to make sure we are rid of all the clutter I dont always stick to it though!! xx

      Well our loft was just a joke. I spent about 6 hours in the loft and it looked exactly the same as when i went up there. I am finally starting to get things boxed up and sorted now though.

    I absolutely hate the buying and selling process- let alone the actual moving. We’ve lived in 5 different places since the birth of our son who is 3 and a half.. and even now we’re looking at selling our new place next year to get somewhere slightly larger now that our family has grown. It’s never ending stress.

    Oh gosh I don’t envy you at all. I’ve only ever bought one house, the home I am in and have been for 9 years, and I would hate to move!
