On the move – part 6: A considerable amount of paperwork*

A couple of weeks since my last moving related post (18 July) and the chain on our sale is now complete. Last week we got all of the forms from the solicitor and I spent numerous hours over a few nights, with help from Sam of course, completing them and collating supporting documents. Tedious but necessary of course. The purchase forms were much shorter and easier to complete. Of course, the purchase will come with a lot more reading.

We went on Wednesday to deal with the new mortgage. We had forgotten how long it takes to go through the process. We had done an awful lot of prep. work but yet we were still lacking information that was necessary! However, it was done in just over two hours and we then headed off to work (at home for me) a bit later than normal. Next step is to book in a survey – need to do that tomorrow. Oh, and I need to try and get some removal quotes.

I had a bit of a ‘meh’ moment on the way home though. A combination of the heat, being busy at work and all of the paper work and money starting to go out have made it quite real but in a very ‘high risk’ way. I don’t like risk, it upsets me greatly. But, this is how the moving process works so I just need to grit my teeth and keep getting through it all. It’s something Sam and I both want so all of this stuff is a necessary evil!

*Inspired by Hot Fuzz which I was watching in preparation for our cinema trip to see The World’s End, part 3 of the Cornetto Trilogy.
