Given the level of competence shown by the other side’s legal team I am entirely unsurprised that contracts have not been exchanged today as they should have been.
I would have made sure my client was aware he needed to be contactable on the proposed date of exchange so that his consent to exchange taking place could be confirmed. Nah – buyer cleared off for the weekend and his solicitor/conveyancer (whichever) is now on holiday until Jan 2nd. Something tells me completion date will not be the 10th.
and my poor son is all packed and unable to go
(note no full stop – it’s a never ending story)
