    Did you hear back from your buyer.
    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    Oh yes! His solicitor sent an email with 32 requests - and some of them had a,b and c against them - so lots of requests! Some of them are just impossible for us to meet and so we were thinking it was all over. We were waiting for the estate agent to call us so that we could ask him to speak to the buyer and say he was being totally unreasonable - when the agent called he also told us that the buyer was drastically reducing his offer!!! We told the agent it was all over and that we would put our flat back on the market after the weekend. We had a really miserable weekend, weighing up all the options and lamenting over all the money that we have so far spent on our own survey and honouring some of the requests for our buyer.

    The buyer today came back and has offered a bit more money - still considerably lower than the original price we agreed. We cannot budge and so our agent is going to speak with the owners of the house we want to buy and see if he can get them to reduce the price (a few things came up on the survey which we were willing to overlook). Our solicitor is speaking to him tomorrow to tell him that he needs to drop his requests as we have done what we can. We are obviously having to meet the requirements which were highlighted in the fire safety check. We have to swap our door for a fire door and then fancy smoke/fire alarm system connecting all the flats in the block, so more expenses to come. Fine, because at the end of the day it will keep us safe and is a legal requirement anyway. His other requests are just ridiculous though.

    Anyway, we will know one way or another by the end of this week. I will keep you informed!
