Well our house purchase has pretty much fallen through as the seller won't break the chain so we've no chance of completing in time.
And our own sale may be about to collapse too.
We had electrical tests carried out at the buyers' request - and at our cost - as they wanted it done.
It flagged up the main lighting circuits need earthing. It's a historical issue as we've had no work on it done for the 10+ years we've been here and was not aware of it.
Buyers say house is "dangerous" and want £2k off - we've said no.
They are standing firm.
I'm fed up with them TBH (and the whole selling/buying process) and am prepared to take house off market and put it back in a few weeks.
We feel they've already got a very keen price.
And because they've signed a rental agreement on their current place it's effectively scuppered our chances of completing our own purchase in time.
That will cost us £ for survey and solicitors' fees.
Our Agent says it also means if they don't buy our place they still have to move out of their own.
Having said all that I'm wondering if I'm cutting my nose off to spite my face and we should just knock off some £??
We have found a place we could rent.
