Been in the process of buying a house since July. Made an asking price offer on a house we really wanted, which was accepted . We then Lost the buyer on our house 3 times!, then finally found a buyer who looked kosher. Was a couple of weeks away from exchanging contracts on friday and were out shopping for new kitchens etc....when the owners of the house we wanted decided they no longer want to sell as prices were rising and they had decided to rent it out instead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:twisted: £2000+ down the drain in fees etc.... and prices where we were looking are now beyond us!!!:twisted: The UK house buying/selling laws need changing! £2000 wasted and it could happen numerous more times! How wrong is that? I wanna start an e-petition. Anyone think of a decent available domain name to use?
