    Went on the market yesterday, had 2 viewings and it just sold for full asking price to landlords so there is no chain :D

    Spoke to a great mortgage advisor, we can stay with Abbey but change to a interest only, so wont have to pay £4500 redemption fees. Then as long as we don't go over 85% property value we can self certify for another interest free mortgage, therefore putting up what we can look at paying to around £180k. Our repayments would be about £20 more a month than what we are currently paying, so we can put a little bit back each month into a savings account, more when Matt gets payrises and qualifies.

    Now to find a house!!

    *Makes note not to read anymore moving threads from Cat and Terrie* lol.

    We've got a viewing booked tomorrow for a house that has no chain, so hopefully if we like it there shouldn't be *too* many issues when we move.

    Ha stress should be my middle name, I was in the bath last night calling out things to Matt that I kept thinking of, like sorting out our gas/electric bills as we're in credit etc.

    Wobbs the house I looked at today I don't think a midget would fit in the spare room! And it's at the top end of our budget.

    Feeling really disheartened as we will have to pay £180k for a house that needs £5k of work and it's still not ideal. God house prices have gone up!
