Thursday 2nd October saw us settle on our land purchase.
Hello mortgage! Our bank, HSBC, were great and managed to get everything ready so we could settle in time.

CDC approval is via a private certifier and is normally granted within 10 days so is faster than the alternative route of going via Council for approval.
That was all a bit dry so onto something involving colour and pictures 🙂
