We put an offer

(Just a little late posting ) AH! we actually did it! We put an offer on a lot, we signed the final offer on april 23 after we went back and forth a few times negotiating on price with a few conditions to give us time to get a soil sample, an engineer to see where and which septic system we can put and of course get building permit approvals . As there are some restrictions on this lot they request specific information on surveys before we can be approved for building permits and if we don't have this information on floating level lines where it starts and ends, high water marks and a few other specifics then we would need a new survey. The agent has been trying to track down the surveys and 2 weeks later there still no sign of anything, I gave him a deadline for him to retrieve them otherwise a surveyor will need to be hired. We finally hired a surveyor and typically it takes 15 days from once they're hired for them to go on site and then proceed a report, I let our in-laws know and my father-in-law went to the surveyors office and explained our time crunch and was able to put a rush on it, to 3-4 day turnaround time. Thankfully my father-in-law has known this surveyor for years and has hired him on different occasions. While we wait for surveys we need to provide a breakdown on costs to the bank for each specific building item within 14 days!! did i say 14 days! in order to meet all our deadlines. Since we will not be using a builder and doing a construction mortgage I have to contact every single trade possible for pricing and emailing more then one person of the same trade as responses we're coming in fast enough. Also while getting quotes we were trying to finalize our plans as the majority of trades require our plans inorder to provide accurate pricing. We met our construction deadline, finalized 99% of our plans as we can not fully finish them until we have our survey. Now we wait for an approval which can take up to 72 hours. There seems to be a theme here: WAITING! and waiting is not my husbands strong suit..
