Ivy is annoyed when the girls don't make up the old rate and wages even though they work flat out. She refuses to take orders from Connie Parker. Martin helps Kevin knock No.13 about, building an archway. Mike is delighted to get an order from buyer Graham Farrell but isn't sure the order can be completed on time. Kevin spends his spare time stripping the wallpaper at No.13. He and Sally are horrified when the building society reject their mortgage application. Mike realises that he's going to have to win the girls round so he offers to up the rate 5% and tells Ivy that he'll pay them all overtime at time-and-a-half. The girls reluctantly agree. The building society tells the Websters that in June 1985 Sally had a county court judgement made against her for an unpaid debt of £216.48 and as they didn't declare this they couldn't have the mortgage. Sally had forgotten all about the debt. She tries to explain it to Kevin but he is furious, accusing her of ruining their chances.
