  1. Thank you sir! Aye we worked our socks off, and through lockdown and lots of deaths in our family, plus pregnancy losses. Traumatic! But totally worth it 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
  2. Thanks! Hope you enjoyed it! It’s a highlights reel of course - everyone in this forum knows the truth of house building!
  3. The programme of course make drama of everything! We have lots of friends in the tower blocks - it’s a great area near lots of new flats and beautiful houses along the river. The caravan was sadly burned…but we had abandoned it and the site for months as my husbands father passed away. We didn’t have site security at that point and kids must have thought it was abandoned as it was pushed to the back… Still horrific! 3 other houses are now well underway!
  4. My problem is my application went in on 15th December and Ofgem are ignoring my emails, ie. Not responding to the application. There was a postcode mixup, which I rectified a few days after application. Now the application says "Address mismatch - pending". I called the other day and they said they were working on it... It's a long time when some people have theirs go straight through!
  5. Hey all, Apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong place.... Couldn't find a relevant thread... So we are nearing completion, we have been living at the house ie. using it in a domestic sense, for just over a year. We installed an Air Source Heat Pump and got a loan from Home Energy Scotland. We were assured that the Domestic RHI would pay for our loan. We have our MSC Certificate and our EPC. Ofgem and the Domestic RHI team are completely ignoring all emails from me for some reason. We're hugely aware of the fact that the deadline is coming up - they questioned how many days we had lived in the house, I told them we were here every day using it and the heat pump every day for the last year. I've chased the guy 4 times - no response. I'm on Twitter trying to get through to Ofgem. I'm trying them on the phone but keep missing their opening hours. I just want to find out if they're trying to dodge me, and if other people in a similar situation got the RHI all sorted? I'm starting to worry, as we really can't afford these monthly payments and would DEFINITELY not have chosen to go with an ASHP otherwise... Thanks! Joanna
  6. Have been in chats with the head of Building Control for a while now - maybe I should speak with the head of planning? I'll speak with the local MP for sure, thanks Dave!
  7. I applied for a temporary habitation certificate via the portal over a year ago.... they've just said no. Everyone who works at the department. They dont issue temp certs anymore they say.
  8. I sure have asked many times!! They said they dont issue them anymore - as standard... they dont do it. We have them practically kicking our door down to get us to register for council tax though... Maybe I'll need to just do that?
  9. Still going with my VAT return... almost there though! We do not have completion so will need to provide some other evidence. Did anyone use a letter from their mortgage company? This is ours: This is to certify that ********** released, on 27/01/2021, the last instalment of its loan secured on the building at Plot 4 ********** because the final valuation completed on 25/01/2021 confirmed a sufficient property value to support this release. The HMRC VAT return notes state that they need to know the building is complete... do you think this letter will suffice or not? Confusing! Glasgow City Council won't give us temporary habitation...only the full thing. I'm loathe to start paying council tax when there are literally no services on our street. Its a dump!! No bin collections etc etc etc... Thanks! Joanna

  11. Haha oh dear I've entered every invoice number on to the spreadsheet.... I'm nearly done now! All my invoices are digital and I've printed them, so will send the hard copies.
  12. So I'm going through my mountain of Screwfix and Tool station invoices. Does anyone know if you can just use the last 4 digits, like the stores themselves do, on our spreadsheets? So for order no: A6973253874.... can I just type the last 4 letters? Will HMRC accept this? Thanks all! Joanna
  13. If delivery is included on the invoice, do we claim for the total, or take delivery out then calculate the VAT? Also... if invoices are in euros, do we make the conversion before entering to spreadsheet? Thanks all!
  14. Oh my goodness. What a long time... were they in touch at all in between? CONGRATS!
