Folks selling their houses..............beware.........
the practice of gazundering is under way in the (y)UK.
This basically involves the buyers delaying signing contracts, until you the seller has, then making a lower offer on your house. Some unscrupulous, nasty and snide purchasers are waiting until the last minute before your expected completion date to do this..........in our case 4 days!!!!!!
The callous swine who do this need to be taught a lesson. Legally there is little one can do because the buyers have not committed to the sale, yet.
However, the worm has now been black-balled from the golf club he wishes to join! I, personally have ensured that our neighbours (past lady and past captain, and chair of the greens commitee!); and some of our influential partners.......another past captain, house commitee chair, members chair are aware of this rotters behaviour. Not really enough, but a prestigeous club doesn't want HIS SORT associated with their membership!
BTW, he has applied twice before; he has a high handicap, no letter from God (we had introductory letter from the Lancashire R&A president), and was planning to use our neighbours to get him in, not now bucko....
So, dear readers, dont tell the rotten low life you're emigrating, do not sign until they do, and get a decent solictor.
