My side is all done, as is their side with their mortgage all sorted, but the builder they're buying off are, for whatever reason, dragging their heels despite wanting everything tied up really quickly to get a deposit down, hence why I had to go in with a cash offer. The place is being built, it's not as if they aren't doing anything to it, so I'm not entirely sure what's difficult about getting a contract signed and them getting some money in to aid with cash flow etc.
The sellers told me last weekend when I went around that they're moving out end of March regardless of whether their new place is ready but I'd rather everyone signs a bit of paper before I started buying furniture. There's a difference between moving out while theirs is finished and moving out despite it falling through!
Why should it be Salty? This isn't a football thread. And you don't have to be a supporter of any team to have the same feelings. The guy I replied to actually posted in 'Things you like' thread...IRA - Geezers. Is he a Celtic fan ?
I know the people I'm buying off, so I'm 99% sure it'll go through but until I've signed something there's always that thought in the back of your mind and that's why I've not bought anything yet. Need to get a sofa ordered ASAP really, so I might just go ahead with that this weekend or next.
perhaps my wording is a tad confusing? I read it as....Pags disliked the fact that the neighbour is smoking in the car with the kids in the back then says...'surely you don't need a new law to tell you that's fucked up (ie: smoking with kids in the car)'. My reply was supposed to convey the meaning that perhaps a new law is required as in it being a law in Scotland to stop that particular habit.
I know it's the law, but surely you don't need it to know it's common sense not to smoke in a confined space with children. Unless you don't consider your children's health to be more important than your own gratification. Which I assume applies to my neighbour.
What, you don't think it's important to stop fag smoke around young children, particularly in a confined space? Or do you think parents can be relied upon to take the sensible option themselves and therefore such a law isn't needed? If the latter the evidence suggested otherwise, hence the law was brought into play.
