Could this be the site for our eco house?
Just as I was walking through the door on Friday evening the phone rang. Mr D confirmed that he wanted to go with my offer!! An offer I submitted 2 weeks ago.
Although excited I did not want to get too carried away as I knew there was a long way to go before the plot was ours.
He was to speak to his solicitors on the following Monday to confirm everything was in order before we went ahead.
It seems the current people who ‘rent’ the land had been unable to come up with the money to match my offer in time. This was my only chance of securing the land as his family had apparently had a 60 year working relationship with their family and they were always going to have first refusal on the land.
It has been about 4 months since I first wrote to them, many follow ups, then conversations and we finally got to this point.
I have never been someone to discuss a potential opportunity too early before it has all been agreed, as for anyone who has bought property before knows; there is a lot of things that can go astray before anything legal is in place and you have right to the land/house.
But if this was to be it we have progressed our eco dream to that next step and indeed the furthest we have got down the track to date.
The next few weeks will reveal all but for now we must revisit our initial drawings for the site in a little more detail to relook at the options for our eco house!
