Angry Not what we needed!!

Today has felt like a rug has been pulled from under our feet! It's 12 days till we fly to QLD, all our furniture has been shipped our house was due to complete next Wednesday and some b*****d has pulled out and the sale has now fallen through!
We've now got to remarket the property as we were selling to friends previously but in all honesty who is going to buy a property with mattresses on the floor for beds and no other furniture!!!
We just feel really deflated, annoyed and extremely p****d off. We know it can happen but had kind of relaxed (wrongly) at this point due to being so close.
Anyone with spare karma? God we need it.....and more!!

So sorry.

Can you still go when planned without the money from the house sale?

Even though we have been here for over a year, you never forget that feeling 'the last few weeks/days', waiting to start you new life whilst still dealing with the old.

Sincerely feel for you. Can I ask why they have pulled out ? Sometimes if they get a whiff of a possible rip off, people do try to get a few thousand more off the asking price - any possibility ?

Try to stay positive - I know that may sound stupid but sometimes its all you can do to keep sane !

Sent you some karma, but have a feeling you'd rather a new buyer
Are you still coming over in 12 days? Some people have no vision, and so seeing other people's furniture and stuff can put them off. Maybe seeing a 'blank canvas', after you've left for Oz will inspire them!

Hope to see you at Girly drinking night and BBQs! when you do come over and get settled.

Thanks to all for your replies and karma.
Yes we still leave in 11 days it's just tinged with this disappointment. We've just got to stay positive and hope that it sells quickly.
The people that had been buying our house are friends and it was their buyer that's pulled out. They are completing the sale of their property but are no longer going to buy on. Why they couldn't make this decision a couple of weeks ago god only knows!!
Why doesn't the UK adopt laws like Scotland, where you are protected from these sort of things happening?
Heh! It's not all bad we are still following our dreams and getting a fantastic oppotunity to start a new life in Oz.
We thank you again for your kind replies

shit shit and double shit....sorry to hear that.....I know how it feels happened to us twice, but we found that the house sold better without the furniture etc in it, as people could invisage there own belongings there(they kept saying to me, how great it is to see an empty house, far better to judge the size, I almost said aye wait till ye get yer furniture in, its ****** tiny lol).....all I did was put a couple of vases of flowers somewhere in the house to make it look cheerier, best of luck with it and keep us posted

Really feel for you. Exactly the same thing happened to us before we came out. As everything was already booked and my husband had resigned from work we went ahead and came out anyway- after putting house back on the market and signing power of attorney over to my best mate.
The last 5 months have been pretty hard as we've been paying the mortgage on an empty house while starting a new life out here. We've accepted a new offer and should be exchanging this week.
Hope it works out for and you find a new buyer soon...even if you have to drag one in off the street.
