It's all going on!

Hello Ladies,

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments on my last post. Everything has been all go looking at house to rent, houses to buy! And, we have had an offer accepted on a terrace house in the village where we used to live. The house needs lots and lots of work doing to it. Loads, the most you could imagine! That is good as I have wanted a project but I keep thinking I am maybe taking on a lot more than we can manage. We don't have a mortgage for the place yet, so I am waiting to see if we can get one first. I have heard a few horror stories that they are turning people down for little things! My BT account went to debt collection just the other month, but they admitted their mistake and wrote it off. I have been chased by debt collectors before for a phone & gym membership! Opps! I have had a mortgage since then, but it's so strict now. We'll just have to see! Cross all your fingers for us wont you. I have had it with renting!

Anyone know anything about removing artex! Every wall has the bugger on! AHHHHHHHH.

Keeping all my fingers and toes crossed for you, im sure the debt chasing wont affect the mortgage. Scarlett x

Project is good - think of all the value you'll be adding. Buying a house is super stressful, but so exciting. Good luck with it all.

I hope you will be able to get the mortgage :) I am currently doing the same thing, just that we are buying a co-op . Stressful time so I know how you feel. I am keeping my fingers crossed
Good luck

Keeping everything crossed for you! We had a nightmare getting our mortgage, mostly because of self employment though. My best bit of advice would be to get a decent whole of market broker - I wouldn't normally pay for 'advisors', opting instead to do my own research, but we paid £100 for a chap who was worth his weight in gold! Keep us updated!! x
