I now own my first home!!
« on: October 21, 2013, 08:59:03 PM »
Back in May I posted that I was buying my first home. Well, our solicitor pretty much dragged his feet through out the entire process and eventually we got rid of him and the paper work then flew by.

Fast forward to today, the Wife and I get the keys tomorrow!

I'll be decorating after work then hopefully we'll have all our belongings moved in at the weekend.

Really looking forward to having our own space where I can write music without being disturbed by in-laws  :lol:

Gratz!  I'll be unable to do this for a while, but I can't wait until the Mrs and I get the same feeling, heh. FREEDOM!  :lol:

Nice work, mate.

Thanks for the nice words guys  :D

Had a look around tonight and it's bigger than i remember. I've got a lot of prep to do before I start painting walls etc but it's all part of the fun I guess  :lol:

I managed to convince the Mrs to have my amp either in the bedroom or living room, not that I'll be cranking it much anyway  :lol:

And Phil!

You're absolutely right, first time buyers are having a very hard time. The only way around it is to go through a mortgage scheme with the bank but some of the deals aren't all that good. Ours is pretty decent for a couple who could only get a 10% deposit.

Considering private rental rates and a shortage of social housing I feel sorry for those who aren't able to buy. Definitely feels like us guys and girls are being bent over and buggered.

Steve, would you mind letting me know who you went with for the mortgage? My Mrs has an appointment to see a Santander advisor soon (she gets some kind of special deal as she works for the University), but if we don't like the options we are given, we'll be looking around a lot more over the coming weeks. Pretty sure we can only get a 10% deposit together, too.

Many congrats Steve - owning your own place is one of the best feelings in the world.  Mine may be small, but it's my personal castle  :D

Enjoy the DIY!
