Sadly and with great frustration and expense, the flat we were hoping to buy has (again) fallen through. It may be a case of bullet dodged (as our solicitor was becoming increasingly nervous) but it’s starting to feel as though we’re cursed.
The system is seriously wrong to allow a higher offer to be accepted two days before contracts were meant to be exchanged.
To say we’re frustrated and upset is an understatement. The only saving grace is that we hadn’t given notice at Chalk Farm so at least we’re not homeless as the process starts yet again.
