I received the call at 2:37pm...not that I was counting or pacing or anything (!).
The bank has drawn down the full portion of our land costs and now the dirt is ours!
So that's the end of dealing with the land conveyancer- the less people the better!
It turned out that we didn't have any out of pocket expenses at all with the settlement as expected. We were prepared to hand over about $5000 in stamp duty and fees but it was considered in our loan already which is great news to have extra disposable funds for after the build to put towards back landscaping/fencing/cat proofing which we are currently saving for.
So now to wait and see what is next on our journey "home".
