    We're trying to sell our dad's house.
    Bloke looked around and made an offer, offer accepted as although it wasn't the highest, it was deemed the quickest as he had everything in place.
    Queue weeks of letters asking about this that and the other, can you do this, can you service that. Nope, you made an offer as the house is, the house stays as it is.
    Another letter this week, "surveyor syas the fence is 20 cm over boundary, can you arrange to get it moved?" Fuck off, the fence was put in the middle of a two foot wide hedge and I ain't digging that **** up as we made sure it wasn't going anywhere. Turns out the surveyor measured fuck all, just looked at next doors new council cladding and there's a 20 cm gap between that and the fence, 8 inches, I'll give the **** 8 inches.

    Seems like everyone has their own real estate woes. Discussing the divorce with the wife I had a moment of weakness and said you have the town house (marital home) and I'll take the riverside apartment. The quick calculation beforehand had them at roughly equal value.

    Speaking to me property adviser seems I was a little hasty as the town house has gained 10 points in the last 6 moon while the riverside apartment has lost 5 points. Fucking raging. I'm out near 180k.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    We had one trying it on, on the day we moved. She came around wanting the gas fire inspected. It was all rubbish just looking for last minute discount. Best just to call their bluff.
    Don't even get me started on those that come to view with no intentions of buying, it's like a day off for the sad twats.

    The first house that I bought, we had agreed to but some white goods separately. The solicitor, who I knew, was going through the inventory, fridge £150. Nope £125. The vendor was adamant that it was £150, she keeps the fucking house then. The solicitor laughed, then looked at me and said are you really serious? Fucking dead right, she's took the piss once too often.
    Fridge £125.

    Worse thing about it is we had quotes to have things done in the house to achieve the maximum ceiling price.

    So I stripped all the tiles off in the bathroom and kitchen, took down all the wall units in the kitchen, removed the airing cupboard around the boiler in the bathroom, stripped the walls in our bedroom to be plastered... this woman then comes round 2 months ago and says, I'm extending the kitchen and moving the bathroom so dont waste your time doing them I'll buy as is... sweet.

    So we have been living in a shit hole for 2 months now and all for nothing.

    On the plus side I cleaned the garage out and our gert sorted out the loft chucking a load of shit away in the process so every cloud and all that.

    This is what you pay estate agents for, I know they take a slice but they deal with the chaff.

    Thing she ain't really chaff she's someone we kind of know ... and the estate agents wanted 800 quid off both of us to become involved, despite them not having to post on a website or take photos or owt really.

    I was surprised at the amount of faff just from remortgaging to buy my ex out. Still spent weeks chasing up solicitors and I wasn't even moving!

    Me and the new GF have made very early plans of moving in together. That means selling 2 houses and buying a third. The thought of that fills me with dread.
