    That is really crap for you mate.

    Lock out clauses are not used often but I believe we should adopt the same law that Scotland brought in and stopped the gazumping.

    The French and the Scottish model should be adopted everywhere.

    While it adds time pressure it stops all this caper.

    There are no winners in all this and maybe it’s for a reason.

    That is a shocking state of affairs Colin - I'm truly sorry for you. You have more rights as a consumer when you buy a bag of nails in B&Q than you do when you try to buy a house in England. It's an appalling state of affairs, and the greed of your vendor bears no thought whatsoever for the expense you have incurred or the emotional upset involved.

    It's a little more secure in Scotland, but it's a myth that once offered, you're bound. An offer is legally binding, but it always contains caveats on both the offer and the acceptance, so until the caveats are dismissed or agreed one by one, by negotiation, there is still the opportunity to pull out on either side. Once they are agreed, the missives as they're called, are said to be concluded, which is the same as exchanging contracts in England. But until then, a clever solicitor will always build in a few curve balls to get out by, on both sides of the bargain.

    I hope your luck looks up Colin.

    You have my sympathy Colin, how these people can sleep at night is beyond me. Shame on them.

    I think my wife has resigned herself to staying in this house.
    It has upset her far more than me, we need a Bungalow as my wife has Emphasema (sp?) and it gets worse in the winter, she is now talking about getting a stair lift rather than move
    She said, less drama, less hassle and less cost

    Oh well, life goes on and I will do what adaptions I can to make life better for us both.
    On a plus note, the neighbours are pleased... God knows why as I told them I never liked them and was really looking forward to moving away from them all.....They all thought I was joking
    I am a novice.. Have been since the day I was born
