Finally Run Out of Luck...

    Recommended Posts

    Our lucky streak was bound to end sooner or later, house sale fell through today :arghh:

     

    Never mind, these things are sent to test us and happen for a reason.

     

    On the plus side doing medicals this week so should have the visa soon, worse case scenario at the moment is that we'll have to fly out and validate visa if house doesn't sell in time. Sounds like an excuse for a holiday to me if it gets that far. Keep the barbie coals hot for us ;)

    I am so sorry to hear that, I think its awful the system for selling houses is here, to be able to drop out at the last minute is terrible, wish they would change the law on it all!!!!

     

    Hope you get another buyer asap.

    Oh No!! So sorry to hear that. I hope you are not too down in the dumps. Fingers crossed for you that you get another buyer really soon. If not is it a possibility to rent it out and get here anyway? Thats what we did and we sold last month!!!

    Good luck, have a lovely xmas xxx

    Sorry to hear about the house sale. Hopefully you will be lucky to sell it again without too much delay. We haven't even started on the selling ladder yet although we had our Visa approved last week. Good luck for Friday with the IELTS results. Sure you wont need it. Let us know how you do. Mine on Sat. which I am not looking forward to!

    Thanks everyone for those kind thoughts and words, I am still staying optimistic, we know we have a good house (we had 3 buyers fighting over it when we sold). Hopefully something will happen after Christmas, which in all fairness is when we were originally going to sell anyway.:)

     

    Oh and Rob & Jane???? I posted results on another thread got them Friday:

     

    Listening 9, reading 9, writing 8.5, talking 9, overall 9. Not bad with a suffolk accent too ;)

    Congratulations - those scores are some to beat:notworthy:

     

    My fear is listening to how they are speaking and not what they are saying and then not knowing what the answer is!! :huh: Will find out soon enough. Only have to wait a week for the results due to christmas, so watch this space on 18th! Off to practice.....

    Hi Jane, I too was worried about the listening one, as at the moment there is so much going on in my head I've not been a terribly good listener of late. You just need to empty your mind for the day and pay attention lol easier said than done. I think there are some practice listening tests on the web if you want to try them.

     

    Good luck, you'll be fine :D

    Thought about it, we still got a bit of time though and it sold quick before (its a bit of a show home, even though Tina insists that its always a mess lol), keeping fingers crossed.

     

    Dunno what I can say to cheer you up

     

    How about " the fish will still be here when you eventually arrive" :biglaugh:;)

    Sorry to hear your news. It's about time they changed the system in England. We sold our house in Scotland and the purchasers had to sign missives (within 4 weeks of offer) - they were then locked into a contract and if they didn't complete they would have to pay re-advertising costs/compensation etc. We sold in October 08 and booked flights immediately (arrived 30 Nov 08). Sale completed Jan 09 with no problems. Sick of hearing that people pull out at the last minute - it ruins the dream!
