Loadsa cash tbh. 2 bed annexe set in a totally rural setting ….If its for tourists, theres money to be made out there.
I understand the folk right next door thing. As for larpists Id get banned with my true thoughts, but each to their own.Loadsa cash tbh. 2 bed annexe set in a totally rural setting ….
just not totally sure we want people around us all the time though. Annexe was being built for number four daughter but half way through its build, she met up with some no job waster from Newcastle at a LARPing event and, having known him for three weeks, headed off North taking one of the grandchildren.
totally knocked the wind out of our sails which is why it’s remained unfinished for a load of years.
A bungalow isnt such a bad thing even if its not what you want. They sell easily and are good for you as you age.Well that rental I was going to see was a joke. They called me the day before we were supposed to view and said, it's gone.
Same day we made an offer on a house and it was accepted. Since the house is empty a moving date is no problem. Now just worrying about our buyers mortgage coming through. Tentative moving date of 27th July.
The only problem is I don't really like the house. Kim does like it. I wanted a Victorian sandstone villa. What we've got instead is a 60s bungalow that needs to be gutted and extended. Looks like it will keep me busy for two years minimum.
It also only has a single garage so plan to build a 5x6m shed/garage for the workshop and other car.
Wow. Genuinely gutted for you, what a miserable experience.Part 1
Well the house move this week turned into a fiasco-disaster, we were due to move on Tuesday. The removers came on Monday and Tuesday morning to pack up the van (looked like a massive full size HGV) then headed off to Monifieth. We headed up soon after and expected the key exchange to happen at around mid day.
At around 12 we started to hear that our buyers were having problems with their mortgage from Santander and there would be a delay. We were told that Santander had sent the mortgage to the buyers solicitor, the solicitor said its not here. Anyway this went on for the rest of the day till at 4, the removal company said, "the lorry has to go back to the depot of there are no keys by 4". By this time I'm swearing at the solicitor and my wife is in tears. Stuck in a hotel overnight.
Next day, the removal company says, tell us when you have the keys and we will come back (two hour drive for them), but if no keys by 12 then they need to return the contents to the original location. So I tell me solicitor, key by 12 or the deal is off.
More pissing about till 12 and still the buyers mortgage cant be found, so deal off and we head back to Dunfermline, wife virtually hysterical.
Finally at about three when the removal van was half emptied back into our place in Dunfermline, we get a call saying, the motgage has been found, can we complete the sale today. Given it take about 6 house to load/unload the van and that it was just too late, we had to say no, it too late. The deal is off.
Wife devastated and £2500 down the drain for the false start removal that should have taken 2 days and ended up as 3 back where we started.
Dont think I would have laid on a removals team and packed anything until completion
Is being 2.5k down at this stage a deal breaker? I would have thought this pails into insignificance considering all the other expenses involved in a house move.
