    Had a second viewing of the place we’ve had an offer accepted on. Having lost one to significant subsidence my partner and I are now somewhat paranoid. Are these cracks anything to worry about @leggy_blonde? Obviously we’ll get a proper survey in due course but whilst we’re waiting for all the initial conveyancing to go through I’d value your thoughts, as well as anyone else that knows about such things? Wondering (and hoping) they’re just cracks in the render from settlement etc

    Further developments from the subsidence indicated in the survey that I posted about a few pages back; we've decided to walk away.

    We viewed another property earlier this week that was the same price, bigger and clearly in a much better and more loved condition than the subsiding one. We offered the asking price and have just found out we have had our offer accepted. We met with the ever brilliant Mike from Crystal Clear today who has said that we can just port our mortgage offer across. We had a flat fall through after estate agent fuckry, then we had a house turn out to be subsiding so this time we're really hoping it's third time lucky

    I was on them for four years, finally given a “proper” contract last year.

    PHD sounds exciting, good to have lots of options open to you. Hope the meeting goes well!

    As a member of UCU I’m an avowed opponent of fixed-term contracts in HE, but in this case I’ll make an exception ;)

    I figured those would be the answers! I hope you’ve been getting some good kms on it
