Would you believe it!
The owners of the bungalow I was right ready to buy took some sort of Equity Release thing on it as well as a mortgage and this can't be sorted until April at the earliest.
I agreed to buy it in November and they've left it until now to drop that news to the solicitors.
In the morning I was told to sort out a completion date with the removal company and in the afternoon....... BOOM it all goes wrong!
The young couple are ready and need to move in here ASAP to avoid the return of stamp duty.
So......................I'm looking for something to rent, which I really didn't want to do as it means unpacking and packing boxes twice unless I can find a holiday let and some places aren't allowing that due to Covid ban on holidays and risking losing their licence. There's not much around to rent anyway which is difficult.
I know nothing about Equity Release except what I've seen on the TV adverts so no idea how long it will take to sort out and I'm wondering if it would be better to pull out of the purchase and wait for something else to turn up.
All jolly good fun......................NOT!
