Had the dreaded phone call from estate agent this morning to say our buyers have pulled out six weeks down the line. Apparently they have found another house which they prefer :mad: We took our house off the market for them and cancelled a booking for the following weekend and then they do this to us. I AM SO MAD :curse:

It is about time that sellers had some protection and deposits were involved then time wasters would perhaps think twice about mucking us about.

Now we have to totally rethink our plans and timescales. We were hoping to go out to Oz end November but not likely now!!!

Rant over.........feeling (slightly) better now :D

Julie, House selling Karma on way! yes, whole house selling business stinks.
Wish you luck!

really sorry to hear about it:(

however reading these threads i too agree that as sellers there should be some sort of protection - in other places once a sale is agreed it legally binding

When I put my house up I won't be telling any of them that I am planning to move to Oz. I remember seeing this tip ages ago on here. I will just have to make sure my neighbour is aware of my 'tale' otherwise they might slip up if someone talks to them.

Four years ago I had a baby and moved house in a six month period! Wasn't too bad.

So, this year I had a baby, trying to sell a house and move down under in a 12 month period. Must be mad.... :rofl::rofl::rofl:

We are in 'house selling hell' too. We had an offer £40K below the asking price. Do they think we are mad! However last night one couple on a second visit spent 50 minutes looking round (and round and round) so we are hopeful.

Hope it works out for everyone trying to sell at the moment.
