rockets were placed up bottoms and the survery was done yesterday. My seller goes on holiday next thursday for 2 weeks but is going to be available all holiday so we can exchange and hopefully move the day after he comes home.
Bless him, he is taking all his contacts for removals, redirection of post etc with him on holiday.
Looks like an August move IF all goes well

Well it all fell through again. The guy at the bottom of the chain pulled out of buying the house below me in the chain.
He was a landlord and had already knocked off £5k and was trying to knock a further £17K off the house claiming an asbestos problem.
This is the second time he has lost a buyer so I told my buyer he can no longer buy my house until he has a buyer in place who has completed a survey and puts in writing to me that they are happy with the survey results, assuming I haven't sold it to someone else by then.
My man I am buying off is happy to wait for me as I sold my house so quickly last time it fell through.
So it's back on the market again (which took 3 days due to an office idiot not ticking a box :x )

Oh no, what a nightmare Bel Bel!!!

I feel your pain (to some extent anyway!).. buying/selling a home is so stressful and frustrating.

Blimey, Bel, you're really going through hell with this :o

I wouldn't tell your solicitor your opinion of his profession until it's all sorted though :wink:

It is supposedly happening as we speak.
I don't believe it anymore though

You still all set to move on Friday Bel Bel?

Sorry to hijack your thread, but I just wanted to say that we have changed estate agents, and we're having a lot more luck with them! They are much more professional and pro-active. We've only been with them just over a week, but we've already had a viewing, an offer (albeit a very low one, but it's hopefully just a starting point) and got another 2 viewings arranged tomorrow. Fingers crossed we sell with this estate agents! :D

Yes Ragdoll I'm all set for tomorrow and already packed to go on holiday Saturday.
However hubby is not. As usual he leaves everything to the last minute then I have to help :evil: I told him he must pack for holiday before we move or he isn't going to be able to find anything. He has also been out watching football etc this week and then has the cheek to "JOKE" that I haven't got much packing done. I never mind him watching footbal or going out but this week was not really appropriate.

I could gladly skin him alive right now

I know he will say "what were you panicking for we got it all done" - No I got 90% done while you were out and about and you did 10% :evil:

So if you read this hubby lots of creeping is in order :P

Glad things are better with your new estate agent. Best of luck with selling.

Glad to hear your moving date hasn't changed, though not so much about your hubby!

I know I shouldn't generalise, but it sounds typical of men the way he is behaving! I don't know how they're always so laid back about everything. Do you think it's because they know we will just sort it out?! :roll:
