Hi Gill, hope you get the sale you need ,ther are so many of us in the same boat, the housing market is on its arse !!. OH is a manager at one of the biggest estate agents in manchester and she is struggling to sell ours , we;ve dropped it 20k in the last month [ sack her]. Getting closer to when the visas need activating [ december] so all getting stressed. We may have to rent out or something, when our visas were granted the last problem we thought we;d have was selling up, **** happens. by the way i work in liverpool on the pfi schools. GOOD LUCK anyway and may we all sell our housea and get out of here. wayne n louise.
