    So much for moving....

    Well got informed last night that the seller (whose house we were buying) has decided to accept a MUCH higher offer and has now rejected our
    I think the term is “Gazumped”

    Took us 2 years to find a place that ticked all the boxes and suitable for the wife (due to illness) and within budget.
    half the house boxed up and back to square one

    Unfortunately we were only a couple of days away from signing the contracts (this Monday) so nothing we can do.
    Not just to cancelled move but its the costs that all go down the drain with it

    Not a happy household at the moment

    Hi Colin,
    you should have got a lock out agreement. It stops the seller from accepting another offer.

    We didn't know about that until OUR agent told us about it AFTER the seller pulled out Kelvin.
    To say I was "Slightly" annoyed with him is a little bit of an understatement.
    To date we have lost about £2400 with all the costs etc involved.

    Think the wife has had enough at this point and has decided shelving the move for the foreseeable future

    Hi Colin every sympathy with you - it seems that 'let downs' in the English housing market are pretty common.
    We've been let down three times in different ways during then past two and a half years and have now decided not to sell as it's not worth the hassle.
    There's a lot to be said for the processes adopted elsewhere e.g. Scotland and much of Europe where a sizeable deposit is made at the point of commitment and people withdraw at their peril.

    All the best with the next steps
    Tony

    Sorry to hear that, let's hope the other person pulls out and the seller then is up the creek if they come back you want to say OK but at a lower price than we first agreed then see them squirm
