Finally after another week of chasing the bank and waiting we have now sorted the invoice & FHOG issues!! HURRAY!
Have been in contact with the bank everyday to see if the payment has been made to which I get the standard response "we are still awaiting approval/funds from the OSR - ring back at this time tomorrow for an update".
Well got in this morning, logged onto our banking and to my suprise found that construction funds have been drawn down & that the full grant had been approved :)
Was getting a bit worried that we might need to apply for an extension to get the extra $10,000 as although construction started on 03/05/10 the slab wasn't complete until 11/05/10 AND our 26 week deadline ended on 10/05/10!!
But as usual worrying for nothing, grant has been paid, both the slab & frames invoices have been paid to the builder and I can now enjoy the weekend :)
If only the darn rain would stop....
