Myself and Mrs. Jings bought our first house back in 2004, so we should qualify for the much publicised extra relief afforded in the last Budget. No sign so far from EBS, who are spectacularly amazing at dodging the question or feigning ignorance over the phone. Just wondering if there are any others out there who qualify, and whether or not they've got anything back yet.

I know we're entitled to back payment, but it's November for heaven's sake - how long can it take for lenders to bump up the relief? They're pretty prompt when it comes to passing on interest rate hikes. Fecking banks. Not even Jesus loved them.
