We're in a chicken egg situation at the moment.
We've been approved for a rebuilding Ireland loan and have found a house we're happy with that falls within what we could afford. Its a new build though and hasnt been completed.
To get final approval the council needs an engineers report, which we cant get until the house is completed.
But we need to sign the contracts to move the house along and make decisions about the house, - flooring, kitchen etc.
Is there any way to insure your deposit? Does anyone know?
