Thu 31 August 2006 - and still waiting .......
just a quick update on the house sale
and we're still waiting, was informed on Tuesday by EA that 1st time buyers want to exchange on Thurs (today)
Ring solicitors, "we'll chase it up" rang them again today, still no news
Phoned EA, "ah" she says " there is a slight problem!" WTF
"The first time buyer has been really unfortunate and his mortgage offer has to be audited????? (never heard of this) and there is another small problem" she says!! This is exactly what happened last time and the 1st time buyers pulled out after 3 1/2 months into sale (these are not our buyers but their buyers)
"ok what!" i said
"they are querying if the en-bloc gagrage is free hold or lease hold"
At this point i did explode and got very cross, i mean surely this would have been sorted out when the solicitors were drawing up contracts and asking points of interest etc!!!
Well the upstart of it all is, our solicitor is looking in to it, we are awaiting her call back!!!
and i told EA if this is not sorted by Monday the house is going back on the market!!!
I mean, school starts next week, what are my girls supposed to do, we were supposed to be in Oz by now! they have had leaving parties etc
