That **** at number 9… again

Update time, people. Kim’s offer on the house was accepted on Tuesday last week. On Wednesday, she founhd a solicitor and passed their details on to the estate agent’s involved.

It is now 8 days later. That’s 6 working days. Rat boy still has not passed his solicitor’s details on in return. The estate agent says he has found a house and put an offer in, but has done bugger all about the offer on his own property. Kim is reaching the “**** it – I can’t be arsed” point, and I can’t say I blame her.

I have advised one of two courses of action:

1) Pull out. Ring up and just say she’s had enough, before she spends any money on surveys and solicitors.

2) Demand proof that he’s actually intending to sell the house and that he’s not just ******* about. Insist that he must have his solicitor’s details with the agent by Monday, and not a day later. Also insist on a signed letter being delivered by Wednesday which states that he will, to the best of his ability and extraneous events beyond his control notwithstanding, do his best to ensure that completion is reached the property vacated no later than December 20th. Also that, should this date be reached and no such event be possible due to his own ineptitude and not from circumstances beyond his control, that he refund her fees paid to that date, and that he accept a complete reversal of the offer on his property with immediate effect and no penalty to Kim.

Failing that, he can take a long hike off a short pier while the tide’s out.

Does this sound fair and legal? Apart from the pier-walking bit?

I’d rather she stayed above board. No point in sinking to his level. If that’s actually possible.

Your friend Kim could say she’s already paid out money for her solictor, and demands that he returns the paperwork or pay her solicitor for her. That way any delays will be covered by the twunt.
