After yesterday’s post I am allowing myself a grumble.
Today we found out that the bottom of our chain has collapsed. I had allowed myself to hope this move would go smoothly (unlike MrS who has always made Eeyore noises about not getting too excited…) but today our buyer’s buyer pulled out. Apparently there has been some boundary issues thrown up by the survey on our buyer’s house which (for her buyer in particular) are insurmountable. Presumably the same issue will recur with any future buyer so we have to re-market our house.
Now we are waiting to see whether the people we are buying from will give us a period of grace to resell. They are waiting for probate to be granted for the property they are purchasing so hopefully this will make them a little more willing. We are fairly far advanced with surveys and searches, it’s the most frustrating system in the world and seemingly something no one can ever do anything about.
