This afternoon we ofered the full asking price on a house we love, as we were led to believe that the OP had offered the full asking price. Later on when I was talking to the EA about our position he got in a bit of a muddle about who offered the full asking price first & I told him he had told my husband the OP had & that it is now sounding a bit iffy. Is there anyway we can find out who offered first? I feel as though we have been pushed into making an asking price offer & totally have no faith in the EA. Thank you.
Well tbh I'm not sure how you could find out. Does it matter though? If you really want the house and are happy with what you've offered how will it change things if you find out? Or has your offer not been accepted?
But then the vendors will have a full asking price offer on the table & our revised lower offer. We will stick with the asking price offer but will not increase as would then have to pay 3% stamp duty.
