I don't believe it!!

Yes folks another up and down day here at 'move of the year HQ'.

Emailed my solicitor to let her know that we had discussions with our sellers and we preferred the 18th Jan. Put my hols in and so did Alan. Then Alan phoned me and our seller had phoned him to say that his solicitor had called and that our buyers have the week 14-18 pencilled out because her husband is on a course!! apparently he found out because our buyers are using another partner and they had liaised. The thing is our seller can't sign up for his rental property until contracts are exchanged. So I rang our solicitor (wasn't that brave of me) and told her the news. She said well we can't exchange anyway because your buyers buyers (they are the ones who held us up over xmas with the building regs approval) haven't had their mortgage certificate yet and until that turns up nothing will happen.

I let our agent know and apparently he had just had the update on the lack of mortgage cert. He said well I would have thought that if 5 out of the 6 in the chain want the 18th then it should happen but I can't see that. The worst thing is that our buyer (the woman) told me that they are having proper removals to come and pack and move them in - so why does she need her husband there - unlike the rest of us who will be humping and dumping ourselves. The thing is it could be the Monday 21st but that means everyone needs holidays and thats why Fridays are good cos everyone gets a couple of days to get settled.

So bloggers - I hit rock bottom again this afternoon............watch this space.

Hi Catherine. Hang in there! You're going to make it! Not too long and you'll be sitting in your new home, having a cup of tea or a glass of wine and this will all be behind you. Rhondi

Hi Catherine

I can't believe what a nightmare move you're having. There comes a point when I'm sure it's difficult to say "it'll all be alright eventually and we'll laugh about this"! We've moved so many times - and usually quickly - but from the odd time when it's not been easy I can well understand your anxiety. Fingers crossed that you'll get at least 11 months of this new year in your new home, and hopefully all will still work for the 18th ...

Hi Catherine. About your Country Living magazine. I would contact them and just tell them you didn't get it and get them to extend the date when the subscription expires. Evn if it is lost somewhere it's not your problem and it's awful when you get 3 issues at once which may very well happen. Hope you get it sorted out! Rhondi

Defintately unbelievable - hopefully this Down means the next thing will be an Up? Once you're in this will all seem like a bad dream!

We moved last year, and I feel your pain.. isn't it just an awful nightmare?!

Alot of people told us not complete on a Friday. It has been known for things to not go through as they should.. and then you're left stranded over a weekend!

Good luck with it all.. it'll all be worth it when you're in your lovely new home.. I promise! :)
