It won't @nitram there are other buyers and I only accepted this offer because there was a direct letter of plea to remain in their same community they grew up in which my mum being a true local would have wanted more -but if their solicitors can't behave and accept the terms then there is nothing more I can do. The house is a fine house and the purchasers know it...they have grown up seeing it everydayTime will tell!
Ah yes I see....sometimes instinct is best. I hope they do buy and no insult to anyone reading my comments but the best anaology was in the last version of Vicar of Dibley words of which I won't repeat....those towners taking over our village -erm words to that effect beginning with WI meant time would tell whether the buyers ignored the solicitor or not
Much empathy to you Palerider. We cannot undo what has already happened but we can but try to control our thoughts and and future actions. It is a long, lonely, difficult and relentless battle, but we must soldier on and do our absolute best that we can in the circumstances for our loved one, because we know what lies ahead.So I am sat drinking 15 year old Glenfiddich a wee dram or two. I am not one for spirits generally but this old horse somehow lets me relax at the end of the day and besides who would give a piper less in their musical bid.
@nitram has helped to solve part of a puzzle but the rest by god I feel relentlessly un-cured. How does a lone carer deal with the decisions they made -I don't know but I do know I want to be set free from this constant dark cloud. How can I be in a situation where I do the only thing and then feel tortured. Who actually cares...this journey for a while now has been a lonely one and I fed up with the daily chore of guilt, self blame and loss, I want what others have -someone else to blame!!
There is no need to have anyone to blame @Palerider, these are life`s hard knocks and I think you`ll find no one escapes. They attack us all in one way or another.I want what others have -someone else to blame!!
Morning @Palerider I think that you're right, returning to work will help to distract you - I know that it helped me when I had all sorts of other things going on, including selling Mum's house. Just a comment about your post quoted above, it isn't clear - did the solicitor or surveyor actually request a 'certificate of completion on building work' or have you just assumed that this will be required? As the surveyor went to the property 'and almost at the same time you had an email from the solicitors' it's likely that the buyers were unaware of what the surveyor has said or the solicitor is asking - were all of the questions in the email about the building work or other things too?Today the purchasers surveyer went to the property and almost at the same time I had an email from the solicitors asking me various questions that I cannot answer -luckily I have found a legal valuation from 2005 where there is a surveyer report but have to now apply for a copy of certifcate of completion on buidling work they had done (knocking the kitchen into the utility space).
