Yeah, I guess I will wait until the full HTB and then shift gears.

18 grand is a lot of money to throw away to save a month.

The market is soft enough, and with lockdown and Christmas, you can be fairly certain Park will give leniency on closing dates.

Excellent explanation above by JDD on the process.

A good solicitor is worth it for a first purchase. I'd heartily recommend <SNIP> for a truly decent firm that will give you general advice too.

Nobody wants to be left in a situation where you have paid €40,000 deposit, got a paycut and then can't drawdown the mortgage. You can't get that €40,000 back.
Thank you, this is super useful. I am wondering if Park is not willing to budge on this, do I even have a choice in the Dublin market? We are in fairly stable jobs but who has seen the future. With no prior home buying experience, we are clueless how much leverage we have and if delaying the contract to get the clause in will lead us to losing the white goods as well.

Hi I know this might not be the correct forum but did any one owning the Clayfarm houses appoint an interior designer to get their houses done?

The 3 beds were gone on the first date of the launch. We were lucky enough to secure the last Fern and our appointment was only early afternoon. The Elders were gone even earlier than that. There should be some 4 beds left. AFAIK they still recently had some available from the previous release they did a few months ago.

Has anyone got word of contracts served to their solicitors? The EA suggested this would happen in about a week, which would've been around last Friday.

They were apparently given out on Friday but our solicitors have not received it yet.

Is that for the houses? Heard that the contract will be delayed for a month as the 3 beds are not expected to complete until Mar/Apr 2021?

The elders from 19-23 seemed incomplete but the rest of the houses seemed fine
