Oh please tell me I'm allowed to get excited before exchange?! It's likely we'll complete very soon after exchange - I'd like a little bit of pleasure/happy anticipation before I need to start panicking!
You're right about the money flowing about. I haven't even dared to add up the amounts I'll be paying out to make this move happen - around £5k I reckon!
Noooooooo! No wonder your feet are angry I am hopeful that they won't mess us about, because they themselves have lost two sales and know how horrible it feels to be messed about. Also, I've had my share of sh*t!
Whooo! Fingers crossed for you two too then, light and Poocat! I am really very lucky: because I am doing let-to-buy, not selling my current house, we don't actually have to do the whole move on 'C-Day'! That should help reduce stress considerably!
Ha, Raising, I know what you mean! Kiss, not a cash buyer, but nothing to sell: I am doing let-to-buy with my current house, and because I was gazumped previously, that mortgage is already agreed. Also, I had a structural survey done prior to offering, and started some of the searches, so really the mortgage survey on this house is the only potential delay: my broker is confident it can be arranged swiftly, and my solicitor says everything else should be relatively quick.
On the vendors' side, they have nothing to buy and are moving into rented... All in all, my solicitor says a month is possible, tho not by any means guaranteed.
Wow. I'll cross my fingers for you that you complete in a month. I'm excited that 'my' house is now marked sale agreed. My friend gave me a bottle of prosecco but I was thinking 'thank you so much but cool your jets!'. I haven't even put the prosecco in the fridge yet!
ooh champagne! maybe I will get a bottle, for when I move in. Have already told the children they can have appeltiser in champagne flutes when I snorkel up the real stuff. so, oh dear, I have mentally moved in
