NO!! Mind you I never moved anywhere until I met dh. I didn't mind the system in Scotland, this is only the 2nd time we have moved via the English way and its chronic.
Hope yours goes smoothly. Mine has been hassle from day 1 but the purchasers and I managed to keep things going because we were in constant contact with each other and that has helped tremendously in fact if we hadn't of done so we wouldn't have completed today, as my buyers solicitor failed to give them vital pieces of information.
