Yippeeeeeeee we are on our way, fly out Sat 17th Nov.
How did we get this far? Lots of wasted time, up sets, leaving do's and leaving do's.
We put house on the market in Jan this year, lots of viewings but no offers, so after 6 months dropped selling price,
Had an offer and said yes, was all going well, untill we started talking about exchanging!
She messed about for 3 months, we agreed a date to exchange on the following monday and out off the blue we get a phone call from our solicitors to say that she had pulled out.
So had to put house back on the market and start all over.
What a mess, as on the say so of her's & our solicitors and our agents we both gave up our jobs, ordered our container packed and sent over all our belonging.
Have been sitting here since mid Aug with no jobs, no money coming in, but lots going out!!!
Found new buyer and has all gone through now, so we are very happy.
But god knows how much we will have to pay for 8 weeks storage for 20 foot container!!!
Hope this helps others, as in
1) Do not give up your jobs before you exchange!
2) Do not book or send container until you have exchanged!
I think we got a bit excited and just wanted to be in Cyprus, but have learnt by our mistakes
