Just when everything all seemed to be going so well.
We have agreed a tentative completion date with our buyers for our house sale in a couple of weeks and our Advocate has been chasing up a date for the purchase of our new place. This morning we had a call from the Agent telling us that the bungalow we were buying has now been withdrawn from the market as the vendor's onward purchase has fallen through.
Very slight panic mode ensued. We may be homeless in two weeks with nowhere to live.
Most of today has been spent
frantically calmly trawling property rental sites for houses to rent but there are hardly any suitable ones available. Holiday lets are also mostly booked up with staycationers or are outrageously expensive. We have managed to find just one bungalow at a reasonable rent on a 12 month lease so have booked a viewing for Monday morning. Just hope it doesn't get snapped up in the meantime.
As a backup we have enquired about a long term holiday let for a couple of months but are waiting for a quote as to costs.
Meanwhile, the packing of many boxes continues apace.
