The latest news on our house

We've had the survey valuation back, it was slightly less than we had offered, but that was to be expected - surveyors are always cautious, I've never seen a report that matches the purchase price - and it wasn't enough to worry us or the Bank. We've also received our mortgage offer (well it had really been pre-approved as we're borrowing less than the amount we paid back when we sold down in England), so we're completely ready.

The two Solicitors are playing 'ping pong' or 'chess', or whatever they call it - which isn't something that happens down in England - trying to agree the missives so that they can be signed and exchanged (or whatever the technical term in Scotland is. Our Solicitor did his bit, they came back with counter-suggestions, we wanted those amended slightly to put back in a couple of things their side had taken out, so it's now back in their hands. We're hoping that the final paperwork for the missives can be agreed by the end of next week - if not sooner. Our Solicitor seems to turn things around over-night, their's, unfortunately, seems a fair bit slower. However, I believe that everything is still on course - it had better be otherwise we're homeless after 21st April!!!

Hubby keeps telling me that I'm worrying unnecessarily and that I was expecting too much of the Scottish Conveyancing System - and he's probably correct :-) By nature I'm a realistic-pessimist or even a pessimistic-realist, but when I do allow this side of me to be overtaken by optimism, I sometimes get carried away - I was expecting to have 'exchanged' already.
