Kev, we are well versed in contract breakages. We had the house on the market about ten years ago and we signed contracts three times with three different buyers before they fell through at the very last minute. T'was meant to be, though, because fate decreed we would get planning permission when the council became short of housing and were in danger of incurring heavy fines for lack of building new ones. Our agents are not showing people round until they are in a good position to proceed. This buyer is sold to someone who has exchanged contracts (if I understood it right). If you want to buy a house round here then you need to sell yours first. Lots of people are selling and renting or selling and moving into a caravan etc.
