    Impossible estate agents 5th Jan 18 at 3:37 PM
    Had the most stressful experience buying first house from having to change solicitors to bad survey. I feel like i m worst buyer around because the estate agent implies that the surveyor is over the top and what he pointed out is extreme and i shoild take it with a pinch of salt and implies that my new solicitor is slow and i m being dificult.
    I negotiated the price down but as agreed in writing the seller had to fix two things whilst i m left with damp treatment and roof works.
    Now i m near the exchsnge the estate agent was trying to get me to exchange without the two repairs the seller agreed to do.
    He told me that my solicitor questions are over the top but the seller has no warranties for some insurance claims work they have done or any paper work for Windows and doors.
    When i insisted that i want to view before exchange to check taps and gas the ea almost told me that i m stupid and no one these days do viewings before exchange and he constantly plays on my soft spot that thr seller has very young todlerd qnd is dificult to arrange.
    Rant over but am I really being that unreasonable?

    but don't burn your bridges as you might need them for another house for example. Politely smile and decline their advice

  • Facebook giving evidence I believe just said "mr lewis said there are 50 ads, but we checked and found 1,000s".?
