Day 3 – no contract exchange. Apparently the people I am buying from did not sign the papers on Monday as they had said they would. They are not signing until tomorrow.
Added to that they don’t think that they will make the 6th July completion date (apparently they need to give their movers two weeks notice – so were the estate agents lying when they said they had provisionally booked them?). Potential new completion date is 27th July.
I have told my solicitor that I will have to seriously consider revoking my offer if that is going to be the completion date. I have to be out of my mate’s spare room in a week’s time. I can buy somewhere else between now and the 27th.
Time to start looking again, and cancel the insurance I was told I needed to transfer over for Monday.
