    Sorry for being thick but does the 195K include or exclude the 78K land price - what i mean is - what is the TOTAL you are paying for your new house??

    Includes the land. Total with the $6000 extra for heating etc is $195 000

    If we didn't have that extra bit on the mortgage then TOTAL for the land AND the house it is $189 000

    Wow Joanne

    just read your thread brilliant. Your own house for less than 200k. Imagine paying 80k for a brand new detached 3 bed bungalow in the UK....................makes you think eh!

    well done and am glad you stayed in NZ.

    Do you think they build elsewhere - or just in Chch. Or are there loads of similar companies?

    When I was a kid there was just Lockwood and then Ideal Homes.

    I checked their website ( www.murrayhomes.co.nz ) and they appear to only build in Canterbury area.

    More good news today can you believe it

    Some of you may know when we signed our tenancy agreement we signed a fixed one till Dec, stupidly did not know anything about tenancy agreements and unfortunately the agent DID NOT explain any of this to us.

    Michelle phoned me up today, telling me MH have got me out of the contract :eek .

    The legal stuff is that if we wanted to come out of the contract early we would have to pay a penalty AND pay for advertising and any other costs ie rent until a new tenant is approved by the agent. As you all know we are SKINT and couldn't take the risk. :?

    Couldn't believe when Michelle told me that MH will pay ALL of these costs :P :P :P :P

    Which means we are looking at moving into the house in SEPTEMBER not december

    Keep on waiting for something bad to happen as things are going so good at the moment :? :?
