bored, bored, bored...
Buying a house / Selling a house, offer accepted in mid Oct on buying house, sold ours start of Nov. Cash buyers for our house, people that we are buying from are moving into rental. Mortgage agreed, Dec.
All paperwork completed on our sale on 23rd Dec (contract signed not dated in prep)
Our purchase is a pain....why do solicitors do things iteratively ?
Every time I think we are close to exchange they come back with another question. Why can they not work this out all up front ? Its all known,
eg, Japanese Knotweed...
We knew it had knotweed and the sellers had paid £11k to resolve the issue and had a 20yr guarantee to support the work from an accredited company.
Property had knotweed - writes letter (sellers solicitor)
(Our solicitor) Letter written back to ask for guarantee - They had this upfront as it was in the info pack
(sellers solicitor) - supplies guarantee again
(Our solicitor) Letter written back to ask for guarantee to be transferred
(sellers solicitor) - advises that it'll be transferred upon completion
Why does this take 2 weeks....I had a conversation in an evening and then looked online to check the accreditation etc.
TBH its only been 13 weeks including Christmas so maybe i am just impatient, I just can't wait to double my mortgage !
