R and I dropped by the flat last night for a quick check. We brought our renovator with us so that he could see the place for himself and better advise us on what to do. We initially arranged for us to see the flat 7.30pm but it was delayed till 9.00pm because the seller was at her new place waiting for late deliveries.
We met her again today at HDB for the completion of the sale and to collect the keys. It all went okay except that she left HDB without passing us the keys. We had to go make payment for fire insurance and when we came back, she was gone! When I called and asked if we could meet to get the keys, I was informed that she was already on the road! I requested that she turn back. That was slightly unsettling and the worry wart in me started to fester. Anyway, we received the keys eventually and now we can start work on the flat!
Our own place – this feels surreal.
