On the very last day of November, we finally completed the transfer of the three “affordable houses” at Falcon Close. As with most property transfers, we had the last minute scramble to get all the paperwork tied up, but where there is a will there is a way! It had to be done in November, to have any chance of getting the new tenants into the houses before Christmas.
The pre-occupation process, to satisfy the criteria laid down by our generous benefactor, was carried out prior to the completion. It was now just a question of all hands to the pump, Acorn Developments to finish minor interior jobs with the more able-bodied CLT Board members to fit curtain poles and any other fittings that were needed.
On schedule, there will be an additional three households in Seavington by Christmas or the beginning of 2019.
A full update, together with a date for the official “handing over” by Andrew Whitehouse will appear in The Seavingtons’ News early in the New Year, together with details of the way forward for The Seavingtons’ Community Land Trust Ltd.22nd December 2018
