It all finally makes sense. The reason why our house hasn’t been worked on in 10 weeks is not because it’s the councils fault like I thought but because the builders never received approval to build. I thought it was weird that the council could approve something and then take it back especially because they have 6 weeks to look over the contract and house plan. So I called a friend that deals with the said council on a daily basis (she’s a property developer) and she’s never heard of anything like that happening.
Good thing my dad is a builder and spoke to some people at work who helped us put the pieces together: has there ever been an approval in the first place? I called the council this morning and asked when the approval was issued. And guess what? There has been no approval.
I can’t wait until we speak to the sales rep & see what she has to say. The fact that we’ve been paying for a mortgage all along when nothing has been approved makes me so angry. But it’s also made me realise a few very important lessons for my future career in property. For one, I will never trust a sales rep with the process of building my home and two, I’m more interested in the law and justice than I thought. Hmm how does Anna and Property Lawyer sound?
