Are those fingers still tightly crossed? I hope so.
My vendor has made what she thinks will be an acceptable offer on a property, and is awaiting a response. Meantime she has instructed her solicitor to proceed with the sale of her house to me.
My buyer is proposing completion dates, which helps to concentrate everyone's minds wonderfully; I know he will wait if he has to, but perhaps I won't tell that to the chain above us.
I feel like Scooter on the staircase; part of me is sitting tight, while another part is proceeding with caution.
Let's hope we get all the way there this time.
